PASO ROBLES — Taste the sun in every bite of bright, beefy, potent tomato at the Windrose Farms Heirloom Tomato Festival and Dinner Sept. 24 and 25, presented by FARMstead ED.

The Windrose Farm Heirloom Tomato Festival weekend offers a taste of tomatoes right off the vine. Festivities begin with Saturday’s Heirloom Tomato Festival from 2 to 6 p.m., offering tastings of more than 40 varieties of heirloom tomatoes and will feature creative, tomato-inspired bites made by local chefs, vendors and food purveyors. Then on Sunday from 5 to 9 p.m., there is the festival dinner called “Tomato.”

Windrose Farms Owners Bill and Barbara Spencer offer a biodynamic experience at the farm. Purchased in 1990, Windrose is a small family farm located east of Paso Robles, near Creston, tucked in a valley of 50 acres. The acreage is broken into sections — 12 are in vegetable rotations, six are in apples and stone fruit, five are sheep pasture and the rest is habitat full of animal, bird and insect life.
