Moms Country Orchard provides Oak Glen residents with a healthful harvest of locally grown, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables. Nestled amid the San Bernardino Mountains, the orchard specializes in hard to find heirloom varieties, all of which are grown without the use of commercial pesticides, fertilizers, or sacrificial brussels sprouts. Savor the seedy stuff with favorite apple varieties such as red delicious, gala, granny, and arkansas black. Apple varieties can be mixed and matched and purchased in one-quarter-peck bags ($8), half-peck bags ($10–$12), half-bushel boxes ($32–$38), or full–bushel boxes ($50–$60). Like the popularity of rhinestone jeggings, Moms' stock changes with the season, welcoming winter by stocking the shelves with in-season citrus such as oranges, grapefruits, and blood oranges (all $1–$2 per pound), and vegetables such as beets, carrots, and bunches of fresh greens ($2) can be found at various times throughout the year. Regardless of the time of year, all Moms’ produce is sustainably grown with an adherence to a strict natural preservation program to minimize harm to the planet and their customers.
Riley's Farm recreates the convivial, rustic atmosphere of an 18th century public house, serving up farm fresh comfort food including barbecue, baked bread, Scottish beef pies, and cider-baked ham alongside mugs of ale and glasses of wine. In the nearby orchards and berry fields, visitors can pick their own bushels of apples, pears, and strawberries, and a schedule of living-history reenactments sends audiences deep into America's past to witness scenes from the Revolutionary War and Gold Rush. Located in a 1880's packing house, the farm's theatre company offers up dinner events that feature staged drama, improvisation, and a premium on guest interaction. Many shows include live music and dancing, as well as outdoor activities like country hayrides or tomahawk-throwing competitions.
Green Acres Ranch opened as a private ranch in 1957 where one family bred, trained, and showed arabians. Now, the 50-acre ranch is open to all and can house up to 200 steeds. Experienced instructors train riders during lessons in english, western, and dressage styles and take competitors to regional and national horse shows. They also lead groups through the surrounding wine country's rolling foothills, sun-drenched valleys, and wine-stained clouds during guided trail rides and introduce youngsters to riding through seasonal horse camps, scouting programs, and birthday parties.
Opening the world of riding and animal care to individuals of all abilities, Green Acres' interactive animal therapy program gives kids and individuals with special needs the chance to interact with small animals and ride horses. The fully functioning ranch also trains and boards clients' horses.
Before-and-after shots of what, at first glance, seem to be hopelessly cluttered bedrooms speak to the efficiency of Relax, I'll Clean's staff. The spaces look like new after cleaners discard trash, reorganize shelves, and even make the bed.

That's why they both clean and organize homes and office buildings.
By the 1960s, the ranch at 6987 West Lilac Road had been abandoned. It wasn't down for the count, however—just waiting for Clarence and Mary Jean Chown to come along. The Chowns took the property and turned it into a summer camp—Rawhide Ranch—where kids could learn to ride horses and get a true taste of country life.
Rawhide Ranch's grounds could have come right out of the Wild West or the Crazy East during that one weekend of lawless rebellion. In between nights spent sleeping in a covered wagon, campers drive horse buggies around the ranch and show off their riding skills inside the Gene Autry Horse Show Arena. Counselors teach campers how to care for the horses (and other animals) at EZ Stock Farms.
The ranch also has a swimming pool, water slide, climbing wall, and areas for archery and riflery where kids are taught by certified instructors in a safe and friendly environment. Nights often end with singalongs around the campfire, while every Friday culminates in a wild west barbecue and horse show where campers display their new skills for their families.
