    Just off Hwy 101, this is a fun stop for families, or just anyone who appreciates an honest-to-goodness farm stand. Almost everything sold here is fresh and seasonal. During the height of summer, you can pick your own berries, then come back in fall for u-pick apples and pumpkins. If you want to taste something unique to the region, look for ollalieberries in late summer. Fun fact: the goats and sheep in pens near the front entrance always like to be petted, though I can't vouch that they won't bite!

    If you have kids, this is the place to take them when there's pumpkin patch! Availa barn puts out lots of pumpkins and their pumpkins will amaze you and the kids. There are pumpkins that are bigger than watermelons. Haha.

    There's also a small farmer's market kind of thing inside while your kids are climb around the pumpkins. There's also animal feeding! Make sure to purchase food to feed them!

    Pick up goodies to snack on at the beach, feed the animals, and take some family photos while you're there!

    Great place for all ages! Fresh fruit n produce. Ride out on a tractor n pick your own fruit too! Ice cream, fudge, corn, baked goods, etc. Specialty items as well. Definitely worth making a stop for.

    This place is so fun to go with friends or family!

    Especially recommended during the Halloween season for pumpkin picking and fall season fun and decor. The ice cream shop is awesome and the animal farm is fun to wander around. Also great for fresh local groceries.

    Cool spot to stop at if you're visiting Avila or Pismo. They have a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables. Today they were roasting huge corn on the cobs for two bucks. They also have a big petting zoo, so this is an ideal place to bring kids and family. They offer free hay rides too. Got some bbq jerk sauce from here that we've been using and it's delicious.

    Currently open from May to December, with a free petting zoo and picnic area, the Avila Valley Barn is a pleasant break from the touristy beachfront towns nearby. Animals at the barn range from sheep, goats, and chickens to turkeys, emus and donkeys, and most can be hand-fed vegetables that are sold onsite. At the center of the barnyard is a well-stocked country store, and an old-fashioned ice cream and sweet shoppe. The main store has sandwiches, grilled corn on the cob, jarred preserves, cheeses, dried fruits, specialty breads and pies, fresh produce and even a few knick-knacks thrown in for good measure. It’s great fun for the entire family, and a really nice way to spend a sunny afternoon.
