Visit Oprah's favorite rose garden right here...

At Rose Story Farm in Carpinteria

This amazing secret garden is tucked away in the Carpinteria foothills
where you can step into a fields of 18,000  rose plants in 150
varieties. Take an intimate guided tour through these magical
fields and end your visit with a scrumptious catered picnic lunch in
one of the garden area, complete with sandwiches, salad, fresh 
fruit, Rose Story Farm desert, and rose petal infused
ice tea and lemonade.


Visit this 15 acre farm during the rose growing season (the middle of April through the end of November).  Blooms rotate in six-week cycles, so over three quarters of the roses will be in majestic bloom for your visit.
