Final U-Pick Sunday of the Season: This Sunday, Nov.4, Bloomfield Farms hosts a final opportunity of the season to pick your own vegetables, explore the farm, hang out and enjoy a farm brunch prepared by chef John Lyle.
Here's how it works. Email UPICK@bloomfieldfarmorganics.com to let them know you're coming and how many of you there will be. Arrive between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. dressed in layers and boots or hiking shoes and bring gloves, a knife for cutting lettuce and broccoli and a container for your harvest (if you don't have a suitable container, the farm will provide one). Cost of the produce is $25; eggs are extra.
Feel free to bring the kids and pack a picnic. If you'd rather have chef Lyle cook for you, it's a pay-what-you-can day.
Bloomfield Farms is located at 12550 Valley Ford Road in Bloomfield.
For details about U-Pick Sundays, the farm, its CSA program and its new collaboration with Worth Our Weight Culinary Apprenticeship Program, see bloomfieldfarmsorganics.com.
Mark Your Calendars: This year, the new Santa Rosa French-American Charter School has joined with the Alliance Francaise de Santa Rosa to present the annual Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration. We think it's a perfect fit.
This year's fete will take place at the Agatha Furth Center (8400 Old Redwood Highway, Windsor) on Friday, Nov. 16 from
6 to 9 p.m.
In addition to the year's first wine and yummy French-inspired nibbles, the fete will include live music and a raffle and auction of gift baskets designed by each class and a large joint-effort basket from the entire school.
