Full Belly Farm is taking a year off from the Hoes Down. We are re-envisioning this wonderful event and look forward to celebrating with you in 2019. Thank you for your enthusiastic love of this event. We are excited to bring back an even more magical, educational, and meaningful festival in the future.
Please put October 5, 2019 on your calendar!
The Hoes Down Harvest Festival is dedicated to honoring and promoting the knowledge of agricultural arts and sustainable rural living through inspiration and education. Our goals extend beyond the weekend of fun and education.
Every year, for 30 years, the Hoes Down Harvest Festival has generated valuable resources for local and statewide organizations working on projects which benefit sustainable agriculture and rural communities.
Many organizations have relied on Hoes Down Harvest Festival donations each year to do critical community work. If you would like to continue to support these organizations in 2018, please donate here:
Your generous donation will support the following groups:
- Ecological Farming Association (EcoFarm)
- Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF)
- Agriculture Scholarship at Esparto High School
