Welcome Friends

Bee Fruitful Farms is a 6+ acre Eco-Friendly Learning Farm, where people re-connect with the earth, each other, and the community.

Inspired by the beauty and energy of Yosemite, Bee Fruitful Farms (BFF) is reminiscent of a High Sierra Meadow. From the storybook cottage on the creek to the towering Pine Trees, this bountiful eco-friendly farm will inspire you to get back to the basics.

The Draper Family established Bee Fruitful Farms as an educational resource for the Scotts Valley Community. The farm’s educational program is managed by Matt Draper, who received a degree in Ag Business from Cal Poly, SLO in 2001, and is a recent graduate of the Monterey Bay Master Gardeners Program. In 2013, Bee Fruitful Farms partnered with Thomas Herzog of Stone Meal Farm. Thomas is a graduate of Bob Cannard’s Green String Farm Apprenticeship program, and this Electrical Engineer turned Farmer, has sent shockwaves through the farm with his Natural Farming Practices.

Our Vision for Bee Fruitful Farms is to create an outdoor forum for improving health, relationships, and environmental awareness through education. We want to inspire children to connect with the food they eat and feel empowered by those healthy choices. We want to encourage families to sit down and share meals together again. We hope that an outing at our farm will ignite your desire to garden….because we believe that a family that plants together, grows together.

Our farm is growing….literally. We invite you to grow with us!
