Tomato U-Picks in Hollister
Two more tomato upicks: Thursday Sept. 22nd, and Saturday Sept. 24th. They will be $0.75/lb. Thursday will be JUST heirlooms and dry farmed Principe Borgheses. Saturday will be San Marzanos and heirlooms.

Bring shallow boxes and crates (not too deep or your tomatoes will squish each other!), water to drink, and a hat because it can get hot. We will have some cardboard boxes for sale, but you’re  encouraged to bring your own.

Dogs are great, but please don’t bring yours to the u-pick day. Children sometimes feel threatened by dogs and I don’t want to be responsible if someone’s dog gets into a fight with someone else’s dog. Also, dogs can do a lot of damage in the fields, and the sight of a dog peeing on a tomato plant doesn’t do our sales any favors.

Details will be announcement in our Ladybug Postcard newsletter first. Please do sign up for our weekly ladybug postcard email letter to get all event updates and plenty of recipes, weekly from Chef Jonathan Miller and from Julia too, when she's in town...
