Great place for family, friends anyone who appreciates the traditions of a family farm experience with the best berry, apricot, and apple pies, fresh apple juice, and so much more. Nita is a wonderful lady with so much history here in the pajaro valley!

Fresh pies, a store and an antique shop. This place is a must stop when traveling by. A long list of pies on the menu either by the slice or whole tin. Eat your favorite and take a whole pie home with you.

We loved the variety of homemade pies and other treats offered at Gizdich Ranch. Cute shop with kitchen and culinary items is located next to the pie shop.

Absolutely love this place. We came here to pick berries. It was so much fun. Everyone from our 8 year old to the teenagers to the adults had fun. And the prices are great. I highly recommend a stop here!
