Pumpkin patch and Christmas tree season has ended, and the rainy season is upon us, so we are taking the trailer off the lot in Soquel Village and on the road for the Winter.

Back Porch fans don't fear - our yummy food is available year round! We are at the Downtown Farmer's Market on Wednesdays and the Westside Farmer's Market on Saturdays (the Scott's Valley Farmer's Market will re-open in April). Our food trailer is also available for private parties and catering events...feel free to contact us if you are interested in learning more. Sign up on our email list, follow us on instagram, or check our blog for our latest news re: special events and pop ups!

Thank you so much to the Soquel Village regulars who made our first season at the pumpkin patch and Christmas tree lot so successful and enjoyable!

Below are some of our favorite pictures from our first season in Soquel....

Happy customers eating lunch!
