It can be hard to get fresh fruits and vegetables living in our grab-and-go culture. The Prusch Farm Mountain Music Festival aims to change that by slowing things down.

The Mountain Music Festival combines live music, good food and family fun by bringing “the country fair to the city.” With hay rides, animals, a large pumpkin patch, a tour of the farm and fresh apple juice tastings, this one-day event is family-friendly, educational and entertaining. Visitors can pay a visit to the farm house, barn and orchards, while kids (and kids at heart) can look forward to a morning sing-a-long performance from the Banjo Twins and pumpkin painting.

The festival can also help you jumpstart your backyard garden, with tips about compost and winter seeds. Sharon McCray, board president of the Prusch Farm Park Foundation, said there will be a lot of healthy food options, and Veggielution will sell produce and provide ideas for growing better food and eating healthier. “It’s a notoriously green event,” McCray said.

Prusch Farm was founded by San Jose native Emma Prusch who partnered with the City of San Jose to secure 87 acres of agricultural land in the middle of San Jose—between King and Story roads. “We consider ourselves the agricultural heart of Silicon Valley,” McCray said. ”The park reminds people of what the city was built on and brings people back to our roots, if you will, when we were all farmers and our parents were farmers.”

McCray said Prusch Farm has been home to an annual harvest festival and multicultural festivals before, but this year the addition of musical groups, live entertainment and barn dances is a first. This year’s musical entertainment includes all-day performances from SideSaddle & Co., Bean Creek, Banjo Twins and Radio Rail.
