Lake Side Venue

Celebrate your special occasion on our picturesque award winning lake side setting, featured on our 80 acres of fruit orchards and gardens. The Fruit Yard is “on the way to everywhere”. We are located on Hwy 132, 8 miles east of downtown Modesto, 6 miles north of Turlock and 8 miles south of Oakdale at 7948 Yosemite Blvd. Modesto Ca. We look forward to meeting with you and for the opportunity to help you plan your event. 

We work on a “first come, first serve” basis. Most events are scheduled up to a year in advance, therefore all deposits and prepayments are non refundable. A deposit of $1500.00 is required at the time of booking; we also require a $2000.00 minimum food purchase. All food and beverage are subject to 20% service charge and sales tax. Thirty days prior to your event 50% of the estimated charges are due. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to the event when the guaranteed count is given. An actual bill will be calculated at the end of the event for any additional items. We accept cash and all major credit cards. 

Meal selections, wedding cake orders and rental orders must be given at least 30 days before the event. Your final guest count will be used to calculate your bill, unless the actual number of guest exceeds your guaranteed count. Buffet items are not allowed to be taken to-go. We will gladly consider any special food or accommodation request you may have and negotiate an equitable value.
