Farmer Olympics - John Burgess - Press Democrat

The Farmers Guild BBQ and Farmer Olympics at the Sebastpol Grange on July 7 featured competitions that included potato sack races, wheelbarrow races, T-post driving, drip tape unraveling and more, along with a meal cooked by Estero Café of Valley Ford with ingredients provided by local farmers. The Hubbub Club brass band performed in festive fashion.

About 250 people came to share in the fun, both farmers and the general public.

“It was all about celebrating not just our farmers but those we call our ‘Food Champions,’” Wiig said.

“They are the people who buy our food, like restaurant owners and chefs, and the people at farmers markets. They support our new generation of farmers.”
