“Mommy, I picked a lettuce!” is the kind of conversation you’ll hear over and over in the fields of Bloomfield Farms. Each Sunday (through October), the family-operated organic farm opens its barn doors and sets folks loose on several acres of salad greens, kale, squash, lettuce, potatoes, zucchinis and other veggies. Staff are on hand to point you to the right rows, give tips on how to most effectively dig for potatoes and guide you to what’s at the peak of the season.
Plan to get your boots dusty and your hand dirty, because this is farm work after all. Each box is $25 to fill. Sundays 10am to 3pm, at Bloomfield Farms, 12550 Valley Ford Road, Petaluma.
