Thistledown is a diversified fruit, vegetable and flower operation. They are committed to minimizing chemicals and sprays and all seeds are non-GMO. The nursery at Thistledown is extensive and lovely, and I will return when new plants are on my shopping list. They also have a market offering local products and wine.
And, yes, it's a good place to bring the kids -- especially piggy-backed on a trip to Lone Pine which is just a mile south. One of my favorite things about Thistledown is the idyllic photo opportunities...think rusted-out trucks, split rail fences, a deep red barn, a water wheel, a covered bridge, stables with donkeys and horses, bunnies, chickens,
and a goat pen. My kids spent nearly an hour in the hay maze with tunnel slides.
