Shone Farm celebrates autumn’s bounty with fall festival
Pumpkins and apples will be aplenty at Santa Rosa Junior College’s Shone Farm Fall Festival on Saturday.
Attendees can participate in farm activities, such as apple pressing and picking pumpkins. There also will be a rotten fruit slingshot, wood milling demonstrations, compost lessons, farm equipment displays, children’s activities and tours of the 356-acre Russian River Valley farm.
A farm stand will showcase produce, olive oil and wine made from students who study sustainable agriculture, natural resource management and other subjects at the farm. Additionally, an affordable lunch made from Shone Farm produce will be available for purchase.
Admission and parking are free during the festival, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 7450 Steve Olson Lane in Forestville.
