Kenny’s Strawberry Farm

953 Rainbow Valley Blvd, Fallbrook, CA 92028

At Kenny’s Strawberry Farm they really encourage all the family to get out in the fresh air and pick some strawberries!

“Our farm has been growing strawberries for over 10 years. The berries love the weather at our farm in Rainbow, which tends to be more temperate and cool than the high desert climate in the nearby Temecula Valley.

We grow a variety of strawberry that is known for its vibrant red color and sweet flavor. What sets our strawberries apart is their sweetness and freshness. The berries that you get at our stands are picked at the peak of ripeness, making them more delicious than berries you get in stores. And the best way to get the freshest berries is to visit the farm and pick them!”
