MALT Day at the Pumpkin Patch

MALT Day at the Pumpkin Patch

October 19, 2014

Pick an organic pumpkin, taste local cider, beer and treats, and let the kids go crazy with crafts at MALT Day. Beautiful Nicasio Valley Farms Pumpkin Patch sets the scene for this fun family day.

Farm Fun

Explore new activities at MALT Day this year, or return for traditional favorites.

  • The Milk Makers: Learn how cows’ milk is made into butter, cheese, yogurt and cream. Make your own butter and practice your milking skills on a simulated cow, then enjoy free organic milk from Clover Organic Farms. Meet Clo the Cow, Clover’s bovine ambassador, from 2 to 4 p.m.
  • Farm Crafts: Turn fall fruits and veggies into ink stamps and make one-of-a-kind artwork to take home.
  • Nana Mae’s Organic Caramel Apple Dipping Stand: $1 of every apple sold goes to protecting farmland.
  • Local Chickens, Local Eggs: Pet, feed and ask questions about raising chickens, while learning about MALT-protected egg producers.
  • Pumpkin Picking: Gather the perfect gourd from a big field of local, organic pumpkins. A portion of proceeds from the day’s pumpkin sales go to MALT.
