About Ardenwood Farm
George & Clara Patterson came west in 1849 to seek his fortune in the goldfields of California. Instead he “struck gold” in the fertile farm fields of southern Alameda County.

The East Bay Regional Park District has operated the property as a fully functioning, turn-of-the-last-century farm since 1985. A visit here is a journey back to the time of the 1850s Patterson Ranch—a prosperous, 19th-century country estate with a beautiful Victorian mansion and elaborate Victorian Gardens.

The farm still grows the same kind of produce that was grown in the region in the last 100 years, utilizing agricultural practices from the 1870s to the present, demonstrating the transition from horse-powered to horsepower farming. And, the interpretive staff and volunteers, attired in Victorian clothing, guide guests through the Victorian house, demonstrate farm chores, and explain what life was like in the early 1900s. From December to mid-February monarch butterflies overwinter here.

Ardenwood Farm is located at 34600 Ardenwood Blvd. in Fremont, CA 94555.
