Explore Sonoma County’s
Agriculture, Artisanal Producers
and Family Farms
Sonoma County encompasses a wide variety of landscapes: from oak-studded hills to flood plains, from redwood groves to windswept beaches. Sonoma County Farm Trails members can be found in all of these places, offering agricultural products with their own sense of terroir: flavors and textures unique to their soil and micro-climates.
We invite you to pick a region or select a product, chart your course and spend a weekend exploring local farms and ranches, and meeting artisan and vintners as you discover Sonoma County’s agricultural bounty.
Holidays Along the Farm Trails
~ Carmen Snyder, Executive Director
As an alternative to the madness of “Black Friday” and the barrage of overly packaged, highly processed, heavily branded & exceedingly far-traveled consumer goods, why not shop along the Farm Trails this year? Nothing beats gifts that are hand-made, home-grown, artfully packaged and carefully produced. Support your local farmers, artisanal producers and small businesses by shopping locally this holiday season. Here are some of our top picks for thoughtful gifts. Arrange any or all of the following in a crate or gift basket for a magnificent package. [READ MORE]
The Gravenstein Apple Fair celebrated its 40th consecutive season on August 10th & 11th, 2013. “The Sweetest Little Fair in Sonoma County” will be held once again on August 9th & 10th, 2014 under the shade of majestic oaks in Ragle Ranch Park in Sebastopol. Join us for another great weekend of old-fashioned fun.
There's something for everyone: live music on 2 stages, arts & crafts vendors, excellent local food, wine, cider & beer, contests & activities, children's corner, and of course our famous heirloom gravenstein apples.
The Gravenstein Apple Fair is produced as Farm Trails' primary annual fundraiser. All proceeds fund our efforts to support sustainable agriculture in Sonoma County.
