Fun on the Farm
Murray Family Farms invites all ages to experience the Gem of Kern County: our marvelous agriculture. For those familiar with nature and those just getting to know the outdoors, visiting a real producing farm is always a sure-fire way to have a whole mess of fun. You can experience the traditional pleasures of picking fruit grown sustainably, organically, and superbly ripe or have fun like farmers do with our Corn Cannons and the Murray Hill Slide.
Farming is one of the oldest arts known to mankind, yet some of our most amazing techniques dwindle through generations. Learn about growing techniques handed down through the years, and follow along with the little ones as they learn about the life-cycle of a pumpkin or the daily life of ants. There's so much to be had at Murray Family Farms, we hope you join us all week long, and stop by during the weekend where we fire up the wagon rides and prime the corn cannon for a weekend celebration fit for a farmers week worth of work!
What's there to do on a farm?!
Pick your Own on the Farm!
So many seasonal treats! We have so much available for picking on the farm, with two locations each fostering their own unique types of fruit for U-pick year-round. Come on Weekends to make farm travel easy by hopping on our tractor to go from place to place and pick all your favorites, certifiably sustainable, splendidly organic! Remember, you'll always recieve fruit that you pick from the farm at a discount compared to inside the Barn!
This is only available with farm admission. Seasonal Harvest times are subject to changes in weather.
Call ahead for U-pick availability.
Everyday Farm Fun!
Weekday or Weekend, these attractions are open!
Auntie Annabell’s Animal Garden
Stroll through the hand painted concrete tunnel into the lush and beautiful Auntie Annabell’s Animal Garden. Brimming with beautiful flowers, abundant foliage, and flocks of friendly critters. Don’t miss the old time “water pump rubber ducky races” now located in the animal garden. Watch your children play in the plastic ball pool while enjoying the shade in our central court with turtle doves cooing in the background.
Meet boar crosses, pygmies and kidder goats! We have amiable sheep and the very sweet but sassy miniature horse, and you can pet them through our sweet little petting windows for one on one time! Please don’t forget to use our darling “sink go round” and wash your hands with soap and water. Animal feed stations are located in 3 areas of the garden to delight children and critters alike. Feed pellets take quarters, so don’t forget to bring change!
