Blossom, Bees & Barnyard Babies
Saturday & Sunday, May 6 & 7, 2023
Blossoms, bees, and barnyard babies: There’s nothing more delightful than springtime along the Sonoma County Farm Trails! Choose your own agrarian adventure from dozens of farms and producers to discover where your food, fiber, and flowers come from. Take guided tours led by the farmers themselves. Meet farm animals. Taste farm-fresh cheese, honey, juice, wine, cider, olive oil, and preserves. Learn how to keep bees, care for horses, make jam and cheese, grow and use lavender, and plant a pollinator garden. Shop for the tastiest ingredients at charming farm stands. And support local small-scale agriculture while you’re at it. (Pro-tip: It's also a great chance to find unique Mother's Day gifts!)
All ages are welcome! Registration is free and easy, but required to receive the online tour directory and interactive map. Note that some destinations may only be open one day, have special hours, require an advance RSVP, or charge a fee. All of that information is in the tour directory which will be released ahead of the event date.
