The web site will be off line on December 7th and 8th while we migrate to a new service provider. In the meantime, you can check us out on Facebook for any updates.
Today is Giving Tuesday. Think about some places you’d want to donate your resources. It doesn’t have to be money. Your time and expertise are also welcomed gifts that organizations would love to receive. Full Circle Farm is open all year round so you can support us any time, not just today. But whether you volunteer or not, we also like seeing people quietly walking the trails and enjoying the Farm.
Thanks again to everyone who participated in our Fall Harvest Wine Tasting and Benefit. We ate delicious hors d’oeuvres still warm from the oven courtesy of Chef Dave. We sampled J. Lohr’s fine wines, though I don’t know if anyone got through all six of the wines they offered.
It was a nice relaxing evening with other community-minded folks. Most of the attendees seemed to have had some connection to a farm in their past. The event raised over $3,700 for the Farm and a good time was had by all.
Come by the farm stand Friday 3-6 pm and Sunday 11-2 pm for morning-picked produce. This Sunday is our popular U-PICK day. This time around you pick fresh peas, $2.99 a pound. Kids love getting their own food right off the vine! You can harvest the big, fat pods to shell out the peas. The young, flat pods are for stir-fries or cutting up into salads. Don’t forget to bring a bag or basket!
The days are getting shorter, the nights a little nippy. There’s a crisp air of autumn and Full Circle Farm is bringing in the Fall Harvest. To celebrate the bounty of Nature, we are hosting an evening of fine wine and savory hors d’oeuvres, Friday, November 15. Tickets are very limited so please reserve your spot today.
In addition, Full Circle Farm is the beneficiary of two generous matching gifts, one from the Hague family and one from an anonymous donor. See how you can double your donation to Full Circle Farm.

The tour is coming to Full Circle Farm!
The SECOND annual Silicon Valley Tour de Coop, a self-guided bicycle tour of chicken coops, gardens, bee hives, hoop houses, and cool Silicon Valley urban homesteads, is scheduled for Saturday, September 14, 2013.
Over 1000 people registered for the 2012 SV Tour De Coop to look at 11 amazing coops, gardens and inspiring Silicon Valley urban homesteaders. We hope the 2013 event will be even bigger and better, show casing more coops and new innovative ways to inspire the Yard to Table approach of creating healthy, fresh, and sustainable food and putting natural cycles of local food production back into our yards, homes, lives and communities.
