Watermelon seed spitting, goat milking, bee data collection and squash bowling? Welcome to the annual Farmer Olympics sponsored by the Farmer’s Guild.¬†Held at the Petaluma Fairgrounds on Sept. 17 ,2016, it’s a celebration of agriculture in Sonoma County, with plenty of food, beer, kefir, and kombucha. Plus a whole lot of family fun.

A new generation of young farmers are giving Sonoma County farms a fresh outlook, and bringing 20 and 30-year old dreamers back to the land. And our cowboy hats are off to them. Want to find out more about what’s happening? Farmer’s Guild, or read more about some inspiring local farmers here.
