A Day at Riley’s Farm

Here in Southern California we’re lucky because while I now live in a beach town, where seasons seem to blend with each other with slight differences, I can also go and experience true Fall and also Winter simply by driving two hours up to the mountains. So, when my daughter’s Waldorf school class planned a field trip to the mountains to visit Riley’s Farm I happily joined them and brought along my other two children.

Riley’s Farm originated in the 1880’s and is situated on 760 acres of land spanning San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. The 55 acre portion of the farm open to the public is devoted to both agriculture and living history interpretation of the American Revolution, Civil War, Gold Rush Era, and pioneering history. And it’s absolutely beautiful and charming including a restaurant that feels like you’ve stepped back in time, lighted by daylight and serves comfort foods such as chicken pot pot, ham and potatoes, and warm soups.

Dressed warmly and with our friends from Maple Village Waldorf School, we enjoyed a tour of the farm (which was very reminiscing of the Harvest Faire we had just had at the school) and went apple picking with the children.
