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.
