Event Flyer

Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm

Description: Come enjoy free presentations from local businesses and groups who share a passion for agriculture in California.

Several years ago this event was established to educate the public about life on the farm. Special guests will be on hand to share their knowledge of farm animals, wool spinning, organic gardening, beekeeping, bats, and other aspects of life on the farm. There will be ongoing presentations of the “Life of a Pumpkin” interactive module, Harvest Talk & Tour, a history of the 95 year old farm, along with the opportunity to interact with members of the farming community who are eager to share their experiences.

Live entertainment and food, tractor hayrides, picnicking, pony rides, petting zoo, facepainting and farm zoo continue through the weekend.


Don't miss the Antique Tractor Parades at 11:00 & 2:00!
