I am a mother of 6 and grandmother of 8 who loves sharing my beautiful farm with families and children. Ten years ago, I moved from the city to this countryside farm, which I have slowly transformed into a haven. I host interns every summer and throughout the year - they get to learn the in's and out's of running a small country farm.

My children and grandchildren visit often, and my greatest joy is in seeing the excitement on guests' faces when they interact with nature. Nature and animals - I am happiest when I can share my blessing, a hidden gem in the Bay Area - quiet and surrounded by mountains, yet only 40 minutes from most of the Bay Area. This is my passion :)

This was an amazing experience! I love animals and the entire tour was designed to provide maximum time & interaction with many different types of farm animals. I truly loved it-- and would go back many times. I would recommend this experience to anyone !

Our family had a great time with Jasmine and the whole farm. The farm is well maintained and organized. All the animals were very friendly and fun to interact with. It is a very nice place/experience for adults and kids. We would definitely recommend it to our friends and families.

Had great fun interacting with the animals during the tour. My son loved playing with the animals and also playing on the farm. Didn't even realize how 2 hours went by. The homemade pomegranate drink was mind blowing. Highly recommend and we will be back.

Jasmine's family gave us an amazing tour of the farm, let us get super up close to the animals to feed and pet them, told us stories about the animals, served us fresh pressed pomegranate juice, and were just warm and lovely altogether. They also gave the tour in Chinese, which we requested, and it was perfect for our kids who are learning Chinese. Thank you again for the wonderful experience

We had a blast at the farm today! The place is beautiful. Animals are clean and friendly. Hosts tell wonderful stories of the animals and themselves. Jasmine made tasty pomegranate tea for us at the end of the tour! We will definitely visit the farm again!

Wonderful farm visit to this peaceful and idyllic farm in Gilroy. We attended the tour with four children and four parents, who were all engaged by the gentle and extremely well-cared for animals. We were able to feed most of them by hand and hear great descriptions on how to care for them and how they joined the farm. It was very clear that the farmers LOVED their animals with deep care. A fantastic experience! Also, our tour was in Chinese, as requested four our group of friends, and they were able to accommodate!
