SRJC’s Shone Farm celebrates its 40th anniversary with a Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 6 from 10am to 3pm. The 365-acre farm will feature U-pick pumpkins and vegetables, heirloom tomato tasting, wood milling demonstration, wine tasting, apple pressing, hayrides, the wheel of agriculture, and scarecrow building. Students will be leading frequent tours of Shone Farm, including its forest, during the event.
There will also be a farm stand with “Shone Grown” products for sale, including fruit and vegetables, and the farm’s award-winning wine and olive oil. The college’s Agriculture Ambassadors will be preparing a lunch made entirely with “Shone Grown” ingredients, including beef for hamburgers, with lettuce and tomatoes and potato salad cultivated and harvested by students.
The event is free to the public. 7450 Steve Olson Lane near Forestville, approximately 12 miles from the Santa Rosa Campus. More details at shonefarm.com.
