did you know that Walter Knott created the boysenberry? that’s why it’s so iconic to the Farm. the year was 1920 when Walter and Cordelia Knott moved to the community of Buena Park, California to farm 20 acres of rented land. here they harvested, and sold the first boysenberry, a cross between a loganberry, red raspberry and blackberry. today, all boysenberries in the world can trace their roots back to Knott’s Berry Farm. and BOYSENBERRIES ARE YUMMY!!!!!

this year there will be over 80 unique boysenberry inspired food and beverage options available for guests to try throughout Ghost Town! like meatballs with boysenberry barbecue sauce….
