The farm is definitely kid-focused (there is a petting zoo, a jungle gym, pony rides and even a little tiny John Deere tractor to ride) but I honestly think I would go back even without a kid. The coolest thing about this farm is that you can pick your own produce (remember strawberry picking as a kid?). You get your own plastic containers and are taken (via tractor if you want, and why wouldn't you?) out to whichever picking field you want - you can choose from avocados, kale, berries, squash...almost anything that is in season. We picked and ate a ton of strawberries, which were so much better than anything you can buy at Whole Foods.
Next time you have a child you need to entertain (or that you can use so that you feel less weird about going to this farm) I definitely recommend visiting Underwood Farms - it's a bit of a drive (about 45 minutes from LA) but so worth it.
Below are my pictures from the day:
