For four generations, the Cutter family has tilled the land and reaped the harvests of Countryside Farms. The farm opens its gates to strawberry picking in the early summer months, and to cherry picking in June. As the seasons evolve, so do the attractions. When pumpkins reach their peak of ripeness, which is right before they turn into carriages, the farm hosts fall-themed attractions including hayrides and corn mazes. In addition to growing different crops, the farm houses a variety of friendly animals—Quackers the duck, Thanksgiving the turkey, and Dewey the horse, to name a few.
In the 1500s, the Flores family was Spanish conquistadors and counted themselves among the first to settle on the American continent. Centuries later, they migrated to Stockton, where they now aim to conquer the hearts of Mexican food lovers throughout their community. It's a goal that should be easy to achieve, given the menu they offer: huevos rancheros (available for breakfast and dinner-breakfast), carne asada, chile verde, and other traditional dishes compete for attention with their own triple dip made of monterey jack, gravy, and refried beans.
