The Red Door
The Red Door farm is located on the Eastern face of Mt. Helix right on the La Mesa - El Cajon border.In peak season the Farm yields roughly 1,000 pounds of vegetables a month, as well as being home to our Bee orchad which supplies the restaurant with RD Farm honey.
Part of The Red Door ethos is feeding the public with the most nourishing organic food provided by the dynamic independent farms in the county. San Diego has the 2nd highest concentration of small farms per-capita in the country.
The Red Door is a long-time advocate of group behavior, dining is one of them. We offer the ability to taylor every aspect of your event from Menu to decor. To inquire about hosting events please contact our Events Co-ordinator, Kelsey Doonan.
The Red Door is open 7 days a week. Monday through Friday we serve lunch from 11:30 AM to 3:00pm. Dinner begins at 5:00 PM, 7 days a week. Our closing time varies depending on menu item availability.
the red door farm™ also endorses the letter's 'P' & 'F', inquisitive little birds, & old fashioned cameras, so when you see these icons just

If you know any 5 year olds that can throw their own party, then you are probably lying. However Wednesday July 23rd, The Red Door will do exactly that and celebrate our 5th Anniversary in our Mission Hills location.
We will be having three seatings at 5pm, 7pm, and 9pm. Chef will be serving a special prix-fixe menu showcasing what harvest party is in season at the farm right now.

Stop thinking about annoying stuff like what to pack on-the-go, we'll do that for you....
Our menu is constantly evolving & showcasing what the season provides us from our farm. Whatever we don't get from our harvest is sourced locally, all produce is organic, and naturally you don't dare say organic without 'sustainable' which we take pride in as well.
I guess you could include humaine we work with only the kindest people who all of whom make quality of life the highest priority for all harvests.
In 2011 owners Tom and Trish Watlington, had survived two tumultuous years in business. They loved the space that their daughter Sarah had designed. They loved working with son Justin. They loved the neighbors and the community they’d created. But sadly, they had wandered far from their roots of 1980’s organic gardeners and homesteaders. They recognized the destruction of creatures, people and planet being wrought by factory farming, processed food and overfishing and equally as important, the detrimental effects those practices have on the nourishing & healthful potential that food should provide.
They made a commitment: if they couldn’t grow it themselves or buy it locally, humanely treated and sustainably harvested, it wasn’t hitting the table. With a new a new management team they set out to create a business that would have many dimensions to its positive impact on the community.
The Red Door is steered and overseen by two of the most committed, caring, passionate people in the industry. Incredibly young to be such strong leaders they have a combined 30 plus years in food and beverage. Operating on the premise that real hospitality requires true “servants’ hearts” they earn the friendships of guests and neighbors who return again and again.
General Manager Justin leads the team and manages the operation, overseeing both restaurants The Red Door & The Wellington (our sister location) and plays a key role in the restaurant’s personality. The kitchen is helmed by Executive Chef Karrie Hills.
Owner Trish Watlington is also our resident farmer. She manages the garden and takes charge of social media, marketing and community outreach.
