Our “little farmers” spent the day experiencing a multitude of fun activities including farm-related arts and crafts, and a beanbag toss with a giant tomato and a very pinkalicious pig. Even a small flock of resident hens joined the party showing off their fancy feathers.
Guests of all ages were able to tour the farm in special bio-diesel vehicles, test their knowledge about olives and their oil, taste wonderful local cheeses, pair foods with wine to create the perfect pairing, sample ratatouille made with fresh vegetables from the farm’s certified organic garden, sip and savor the newest offerings from the cellar of The Clif Family Winery, and feast on amazing brick oven pizzas from Pizza Politana, plus farm-fresh salads and tasty desserts from local chef Emily Buller. Ice Cream aficionado Bernard Coll offered up some of his famous homemade ice creams that were a hit with party guests young and old. Yum!
Miracle Mule, a Marin based country, swing, Cajun, Americana band kept the ruins hopping as the sun went down. Even Gary couldn’t resist the urge to join in the fun, thrilling the crowd with his musical talents as he joined in with his trumpet to rock the last song. Wow. It doesn’t get any better than that!!
