Blossom Bathing at Masumoto Family Farm through March 13

Masumoto Family Farm welcomes the public for a blossom bathing experience amid the peach, apricot, and nectarine trees at their farm in Del Ray. The fruit tree blossoms are especially magnificent during the coming two-to-three-week period  as the trees, certified organic peaches, nectarines, and apricots (plus grapes for raisins), undergo fertilization.

Blossom Bathing is metaphorical—it’s a chance to take a mindful walk in nature, breathe deeply, and bask in the peace and beauty around you. The Masumoto family developed the concept based on the Japanese tradition of forest bathing (shinrin-yoku).

The Masumoto Family is offering two options for a tranquil experience for groups of up to six people: Blossom Bathing offers an hour to walk in the orchards.  The Blossom Table experience allows you to reserve a table in a stone-fruit orchard for up to six people for two hours. Bring a picnic plus utensils, but no alcohol, please.
