Farm Bureau’s Great Sonoma Crab & Wine Fest Has Become Region’s Biggest – and Best – Benefit Crab Feed
Guests say Farm Bureau’s Great Sonoma Crab and Wine Fest is so much more than a seasonal crab feed. It’s a mid-winter party where people from the farm and business communities come together to socialize while raising money to support agriculture education and, ultimately, Sonoma County’s farming future. This year’s event raised more than $50,000 for agricultural education and scholarships.
