Seasonal Produce, Photoshoots & Farm Experiences with Private Tours

Amazing three acre private urban organic farm six minutes from downtown Santa Barbara. The farm is in a hidden valley, with roadways and paths throughout, with unspoiled views of the foothills. Enjoy oak woodlands, avocado and citrus orchards, an olive grove, berry bushes, medicinal and culinary gardens, native and drought tolerant plants, and a small vineyard.

La Puma Farms is located in a hidden valley six minutes from downtown Santa Barbara. We offer both short and comprehensive private farm experiences including guided tours, tastings and more. Watch the video below for more.

Tucked away between a tiny city park and a secret horse ranch, and down a street that changes names in the unmarked middle, La Puma Farms was once an abandoned shade flower nursery. We now have 3 acres and 14 different rooms where we're growing hundreds of vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers in a uniquely private setting with rare biodiversity.

La Puma Farms partners with select local chefs, mixologists, chocolatiers and restaurateurs. Our produce is available on the farm, not in markets or stores. Please inquire!
