In 1996, Flora Farms opened on 10 acres of valley in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains, paving the way for a number of local farm-to-table restaurants. There are several dining options, including the 12-seat fine-dining Flora’s Table restaurant, as well as Flora’s Field Kitchen, where diners sit at long communal tables and enjoy family-size portions of ricotta gnocchi with carrot and beet dumplings, cucumber-almond gazpacho, and pork belly confit with mango marmalade. At Sunday brunch, diners line up for Neapolitan-style pizza from a wood-burning oven. There’s also a market stocked with house-made granola, local honey, and crafts from area artisans.
