Farm Fresh Produce
Due to COVID-19, SRJC Shone Farm is closed to the public. To keep students safe and ensure social distancing practices, we have limited staff at the farm right now. Due to that, we are ramping down our crop production this year. We will still have some fruit and vegetable production and much of that will be donated. We are also planting a lot of cover crop. This allows the land to rest while adding nutrients to the soil. A bit of a restorative break for us and the land.
Online Ordering with Curbside Pick Up Every Friday from 1 - 4 PM through October
We are excited to announce that you can now purchase items online and pick them up here at SRJC Shone Farm in a contact-less way. Click the button above to pre-order olive oil, tomatoes, shishito peppers, freshly dug potatoes, apples, and more. To order wine for pick up at the same time, click here. This is a pre-order sale so that we have time to safely prepare your order prior to pick up. Orders must be received by the Thursday before pick up, and you will receive an e-mail confirmation with exact details of your pick up.
Shone Farm is still closed to the public, but you can pick up your pre-prders curbside at the Warren G. Dutton Jr. Agriculture Pavilion on Fridays between 1 - 4 PM. Remember that orders need to be placed the Thursday prior to pick up.
After a decade long run, we have decided not to have a CSA in 2020. We thank everyone who has participated in this program over the past years. We truly all were a community, and will continue to be so, albeit in other ways. If you are looking for a truly local CSA, there are many options including Laguna Farm, Singing Frogs Farm, Tierra Vegetables, Coyote Family Farm, Petaluma Bounty, and the new local collaboration - the F.E.E.D. bin. The F.E.E.D. bin includes the best of the best produce from local small farms, all put together for you to pick up in a variety of locations weekly.
Seasonal Farm Stand
In previous years, students in the Direct Farm Marketing class helped run a farm stand on campus during the fall semester.
Similar to other CSA options, there are many local year round Farmer's Markets in Sonoma County. Just a few include:
Pick and Sip Saturdays at Shone Farm
CANCELLED FOR 2020
Following health guidelines, the Santa Rosa Junior College has cancelled all events through December 2020. This includes our delightful farm events - we hope you will be able to visit the farm again next year!
What is it? Pick and Sip Saturdays are a new family-oriented community event series at SRJC Shone Farm that began in 2018. The farm opens to the public for a special day of u-pick of our seasonal crops, food & music, wine & olive oil tasting and farm activities!
Shone Farm Olive Oil
Shone Farm has two acres of organically farmed olive trees planted in close spacing to produce our award winning olive oils. The three main varieties that we bottle individually are Arbosana, Arbequina, and Koroneiki. We also produce a Millers Blend of all three. Try some today to taste the terroir of Shone Farm! Currently available at Oliver’s Market, directly from the farm, or at the SRJC Culinary Cafe.
