Farm Day: Saturday, Oct. 20th, 2-5 pm

Terra Firma’s annual CSA Subscriber Farm Day is a low-key event that features hay rides around the farm, pick-your-own strawberries, and a tour of some of our fields.  For your Halloween needs, there will be an assortment of organic Pumpkins.  You are welcome to bring your lunch and picnic in the shade of the orchard.  Alternately, you can hang out at the farm for a while and then head to Winters for some wine tasting and an early dinner at one of our excellent local eateries.

Tickets for our annual Open Farm Day go on sale Thursday, September 20th on the Web Store.  Tickets are first come, first served.  They are $5 and can be redeemed for produce, pumpkins and possibly other items.  Children under 12 get in free, but they will need a ticket to get a pumpkin.

Raindate is the following Saturday, October 27th.
