Local farmers market with loads of seasonal vegetables (fall - pumpkins, gourds, squash) and lots of local produce. Large gift shop area with all sorts of seasonal and kitchen items. Small petting animal area with pygmy goats which is great for kids.

We stopped at Avila Valley Farm on our way to Avila Beach. What an amazing place—pumpkins of every color, size and shape. And a shop with baked goods: pies, muffins and scones—I’m always on the hunt for the perfect scone! There’s lots to do for...More

I believe Fall is the best season to visit Avila Valley Barn. It has some goats and other animals for the kids to feed. The bakery is fantastic. The "crumbles" are great taste treats. It also carries a wide variety of home goods and gifts....More

Absolutely loved this place for the kids. They have a petting zoo which you could feed them as well. They also have a really cute store that sells fresh fruit and flowers. I highly recommend bringing your children here to have some fun.

Avila Barn is only about 10 minutes from San Luis. It's just a quick drive away!
