For those of us who dread the mid-December mall experience, Holidays Along the Farm Trails seems the perfect antidote to seasonal panic attacks. Starting on November 14, this utterly wholesome old-school event allows Sonoma County residents and visitors to get into the holiday spirit by visiting local farms, creameries, and cideries. Special holiday activities, taking place on weekends through January 1, 2019, include DIY workshops, artisan cheese, cider and honey tastings, as well as plenty of farm animals to pet. Visitors are also able to buy local gifts (often in the form of delicious artisan foods) or try their hand at making their own. Click through the above gallery for some of the highlights at this year’s Holidays Along the Farm Trails.
Holiday Along the Farm Trails is November 14 to January 1 and is free. Guests must RSVP to receive an interactive online map of participating destinations with all the details. Learn more and RSVP at farmtrails.org.
