Charlie Brown Farms: The Roadside Shop that Sells Everything

Charlie Brown Farms, what is there to say about this place that can do it justice? It is the home of literally everything, from food to dinosaurs to shopping. It is Antelope Valley’s Largest gift shop, it has the worlds largest beef jerky and it can easily kill an hour of your life. If this sounds like something you would be interested then I implore you to read on.

History

In 1929, Charlie Brown Farms was nothing more than a small fruit stand on the old highway. Fast forward 80 years and it is now situated on 6 acres with 1 of those acres being solely for parking. The small fruit stand houses over 1000 types of candy and gift items in its three buildings and two patios.

The Store

Like I said above, to call this a store would be an understatement. It would probably be better to call it the Wal-Mart of roadside candy and gifts.

When you enter the store you will see all sorts of candy, food and gifts. What sets this place apart though is that there are more than one unique store in the compound.

When you have looked through the store you can wander outside where there is a collection of dinosaur statues and a bunch of tables to eat at. Along with more shops of course.

Yes, I would recommend Charlie Brown Farms. It is pretty much impossible to leave with nothing, even if you came in not wanting to spend money. I left with Tabasco chocolate and a fly swatter that claps two hands together to get the fly, and that was with showing a lot of restraint.

If you make your way to Charlie Browns I would love to hear what kind of crazy thing you stumble on in the comments.

    Charlie Browns is always on the list after a hike at devils punch bowl. A couple of friends of mine had bacon soda once. But honestly, their food! Have a BBQ pulled pork sandwich… Delicious! And their chili cheese fries are amazing.

    Have to also mention the milk shakes since there are an incredible 150 different flavors to chose from. One of the few places you can still get “date shakes” although I prefer peanut butter.

    • Thanks for the suggestion, I will have to get one next time I pass through!
