Today was Earth Fest at the Sacramento Zoo. The sun was shining and it wasn't too cold out so we thought it would be great to take the kids and see what it was all about.
There were tons of great booths and free activities for kids, including face painting & little games.
One of my favorite booths was
Full Belly Farm.
Located in the Capay Valley, Full Belly Farm is an all organic farm that's been around since 1985.
They farm flowers, vegetables, fruits, herbs & nuts and are certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers.
They also make organic wine & organic, dye/chemical free wool from sheep raised on the farm, which are lovingly referred to as "Full Belly Sheep".
You can order boxes of fresh produce to be delivered to your home if you live in the greater Sacramento Valley area, and when I say fresh I mean fresh- they harvest the produce, box it & deliver it the next day.
Prices range from $68 for 4 boxes to $305 for 13 boxes, which you can choose to have delivered every week or alternating weeks.
Full Belly Farm is not just an organic farm, though.
They also do outreach to schools, providing educational activities, and offer tours several times throughout the year. Adults can tour for $10 and kids 12+under are free! We love FREE!
(Plus, they were really, really nice and gave out some yummy samples of sun-dried onion.)
