The Blue Ribbon Brunch is a fundraiser for the 3.5 acre California State Fair Farm and the K-6th grade Farm Tours. Tours begin on September 10th and offer students a unique, hands-on experience that shows them first-hand where food comes from in a working farm. For more information on Farm Tours, click here.
