My husband and I just visited. Beautiful little place. The animals are tame and so much fun to pet. Produce is freshly picked. Colors everywhere. It's like a little piece of heaven was picked out of the sky and given to us. So lovely! 💕

Over priced produce, apple juice not worth the price, staff rude, take it or leave it attitude. Apples seemed waxed and bruised tasted just like the kind in supper markets (little flavor) other produce in sad shape.

You can browse the candy and ice cream shop, the gift shop, the jams, jellies, pies and don't forget to pick out one of the outstanding cobblers! Goats are outdoors for animal lovers.

Can be crowded on weekends. Definitely worth going. The produce and pies are wonderful. Kids can feed the many farm animals then get an ice cream cone. A real gem near Avila beach.

Lots of choices! Fresh! Great atmosphere! Sure, it's pricey, but do you have a market like this where you live?

Yes - for the most part. Store certainly; animal farm area is outside - so dirt.

Avila Barn is only about 10 minutes from San Luis. It's just a quick drive away!
