Thorne Family Farm


The Thorne Family Farm has been here in Malibu for over 50 years, and the Thornes are still going strong, making fresh and local food available for our community. The current farm is located at 6043 Bonsall Drive, and is open for business every Saturday from 9 AM to 1 PM during the winter and open on Saturdays and Wednesdays during the summer.

As you enter the farm, you are met with an abundance of trees, flowers and lush greenery. Most of the produce is grown right there on the property or on neighboring local properties with offerings sometimes supplemented by other specialized local growers.

In addition to various fruits & vegetables, from berries to citrus to avocados to greens depending on your preference, you can add some of Eli’s local honey, or Laurel Thorne’s homemade jam. Also on offer are fresh eggs, fresh flowers, and delicious baked goods from Varsity Bakers.

In the past the farm has hosted a variety of different activities in addition to the farm stand, from a pie making workshop to a goat yoga class. Every week brings the possibility of additional vendors offering things like orchids, foot massages, custom knives and knife sharpening. Occasionally local musicians enhance the outdoor experience, providing a background of live music as you you pick out your produce, flowers and baked goods for the next week.

Details can be found on their website:

The offerings vary somewhat from week to week depending on the season and availability – there are always great choices! Make sure to check the website for any updates or changes to their protocol.

I’ve been regularly purchasing their beautiful and delicious produce and am so grateful to be able to bring such fresh local food back to my home. My husband and our four-legged family members are also grateful! We are so fortunate that the Thorne Family Farm has stayed open throughout the recent difficult years, adapting and adjusting as they have continued to provide beautiful fresh produce for our community, as they have done so graciously for so many years.
