We offer a number of activities including educational activities throughout the year such as kids science, nature walks, crafts, geo-catching, river adventures, fishing lessons and more. We offer you an annual two day Pick and Gather Festival that is full of family fun and camping on the Merced river.
Our certified organic farm is nestled in a beautiful meandering section of the Merced River (flows from Yosemite) less than 2 miles from highway 99.
Our Main crops are organic blueberries, walnuts, cherries, lavender and oat hay with some mini-plantings of persimmons, pomegranates, pecans, and citrus. Wild elderberries and black walnuts are available for gathering in season. We re-planted our almond orchard in February with 2,400 Independence Almonds.
Riverdance farms is designing itself along permaculture principles. Hedgerows and wildlife corridors are being planted with plants native to the Central Valley and California to restore habitat for wildlife, native bees, and songbirds.
Organic u-pick farm tours and private picnics can also be arranged. We love participating in the education of children and have a lot to offer school groups.
We welcome school field trips.
Our cherry and blueberry u-pick is by appointment only. This time of year our lavender looks beautiful in full bloom!
