Berry Picking & a Picnic

  • Jun 7, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please make note of our 3 Strikes Rule before RSVP-ing to this event. Canceling your RSVP within 24 hours or not showing up at the event without contacting the Organizer ahead of time will result in a strike.

I used to go berry picking with my family back in Germany as a child. I remember how full I'd get from eating all those strawberries before thinking of filling up the basket. I think I ended up with more in my tummy than in the basket. Well, here's your chance for a little nostalgia or to experience this firsthand.

It'll be warm and aside from the fruit picking, they have a picnic area. So let's bring our coolers and picnic baskets and blankets and enjoy some noshing after the picking!

Some other amenities:

• Tractor ride to the field

• 1lb & 2lb containers provided

• Free parking

• Somis Farm Market (veggies, fruit, flowers, gift baskets)

• Animal Center: alpacas, donkeys, rabbits, pygmy goats

Give yourself plenty of time to get there. If you're running late, I expect you to call/text me. I'll send out personal info closer to the date.

*** Take your Claritins and anything else you need for this type of environment.

    Hi all, looking forward to tomorrow's berry picking! Not sure though if I will stay for the picnic.

    I was just notified of an opening for a workshop I've been on the waiting list for. Sadly it's on Saturday, hate to miss this. Eat extra blueberries for me. :-)

      Sad you can't join!

    I plan on bringing some cheese & crackers to share after we've had our fill of picking. And maybe a nice little Moscato!

    I assume there is either an admission charge or charge per basket. Sorry if I missed it in description.

      Click on the link above to the farm. It lists the prices per type of berry. You pay by weight only.

      Thanks.

    Hi Yumi, You're right. You're organizer.
    Since I opened my mouth up to my friends. I'll get out of that "jam" myself.

    May 2, 2014

    • Yumi R.

      They're welcome at the farm, of course, but cannot be part of this event as there's a waitlist. You can meet up with them afterwards or decide to go separately if you want to be with them. At this type of event, I don't mind people going on their own on the same day as long as that doesn't interfere with others being able to participate.

      May 2, 2014

  • Daisy

    Okay, my friends can go separately , then.

    April 30, 2014

  • Daisy

    One of my friend's parents live up this way. My friend may come also.

    April 29, 2014

    • Yumi R.

      There are many people on the waitlist, so you can't simply bring a friend along to this meetup. That's not the way this works. You can add her as your +1 if that option is available or go separately. As the date gets closer, I'm going to open up a few more spots if many people are still on the list. If you have any questions on the rules or basic meetup etiquette, don't hesitate to email me separately via meetup.

      April 30, 2014

  • Yumi R.

    I'll open up attendance # if there are still many on the waitlist closer to the date.

    Is this place near Camarillo?

    April 16, 2014

    • Yumi R.

      I'm not familiar with this area. I suggest you look up the address in google map then see how far it is to Camarillo.

      April 16, 2014

  • Daisy

    Are we bringing food to share?

    April 15, 2014

    • Andree

      Yes, whatever you like to have at a picnic or BBQ.

      April 15, 2014

    • Yumi R.

      There's no pressure for you to bring food to share with everyone but it's always been more fun to bring a little extra to share. This way, we get to have more variety.

    Sounds very inviting and beautiful there. I live in the OC but still may be able to drive up and meet all of you.

      If you can't commit but end up going, look us up!
