Shone Farm showcase

Art projects for children and wine tasting for adults will take place Saturday at the Spring Farm Visit at Santa Rosa Junior College's Shone Farm near Forestville.

The 365-acre farm will feature a children's activity area with farm displays, hula hoops and bubbles. Adults can taste Shone Farm olive oil and wines, including the 2010 Shone Farm syrah, which won a gold medal in this year's San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

The farm features vineyards, orchards, cropland and pastures for horses, cattle and sheep. The land provides hands-on experience for the college's agriculture students.

Saturday's event will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the farm, 7450 Steve Olson Lane. The farm is a few minutes north of River Road.
