Stop at Bishop’s for Fresh Food and Farm Fun

This place – which is fundamentally a family farm with a wide streak of hospitality -- simply bustles with activities around growing and serving good food. Visitors can buy delicious foods and beverages, raw and prepared, at the farm market, bakery and winery. Farm gifts and fruit baskets are right there, for travel snacking or gifts. Kids can meet the farm’s llamas, alpacas and goats. The farm hosts lots of seasonal festivals of all descriptions, and guests can hit the pick-your-own fields for fruits and vegetables from berries in June to apples and pumpkins in October. Adults can enjoy wine tasting and winery tours. Bishop’s is a must-stop for all travelers – especially families – for refreshment and a breath of goodness of the land.
