SRJC to celebrate Shone Farm's 40th

Santa Rosa Junior College will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Shone Farm, a 365-acre farm in the Russian River Valley, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at an autumn harvest party at the farm.

The public is invited to the free festival, which features you-pick pumpkins and vegetables, heirloom tomato tastings, wood milling demos, wine tasting, apple pressing, hayrides and scarecrow building.

Students will be leading tours of the farm during the event, and there will be "Shone grown" products for sale, including the farm's own wine and olive oil.

The "Shone grown" lunch will include hamburgers from the ranch, lettuce and tomatoes, plus potato salad.

The farm provides hand-on learning opportunities to students in animal health and livestock management, sustainable agriculture, horticulture, viticulture, winemaking, natural resource management and conservation.

The farm is located at 7450 Steve Olson Lane. shonefarm.com.
