The Last Crop  by Chuck Schultz, 2016, 70 minutes

As the average age of farmers in America continues to rise, what will happen to family farms? Even long-time leaders in the organic food movement are struggling to find a way to preserve farmland and ensure the future of local food.

The documentary The Last Crop is an intimate exploration into the lives of small family farmers Jeff and Annie Main of California’s Central Valley. Inextricably woven within these organic pioneers’ story is their ten-year pursuit to ensure that a farm need not be imperiled at the end of every generation.

Still Dirty at Thirty! This year celebrates the 30 seasons of the Hoes Down Harvest Festival that Jeff and I have been co-creators of, part take in, and welcome our friends to join us in this year too. Jeff will be at the evening grill along with the Hoes Down grill Master himself-Zach Main. Claire Main is co-organizer this year of the ENTIRE EVENT!!! You may see her flying from one event to another, or she may be going so fast she will just be a BLUR. Ali and I will be in the wreath room where the Hoes Down event started as a venue for selling our wreaths, we will be giving wreath making demonstrations, offering wreath making kits for you to take home, and of course making wreaths while just possibly waiting to see you and have a chat!


Live Music-Keep your toes tapping all day long. Live music plays on three stages from 11am to 11pm.

Activities-Saturday is a jam-packed day, with all kinds of activities, from wine tasting to circus performances. Interested?

Children's Area-Kids (aged 0-99) have their own hands-on area with all sorts of arts and crafts, pumpkin carving, petting zoo, ice cream churning, and more. Get wet in our water roller coaster with dunking tank; beat your time through an obstacle course made of farm found objects; climb on the towering hay fort; go on a nature walk; and then listen to a story in the tipi or on the children's entertainment stage. Yahoo, there's so much to do!

Agricultural Workshops-Learn about organic fruit trees, grassfed beef, cow milking, herbs and flowers, pest control, sheep shearing, small farm equipment and more... Some workshops available in Spanish! Several walking tours of Full Belly Farm are also available.
