12:00pm Milking @ the main Barn
1:00pm Farm Tour! Chaseholm Farm is a Certified Organic and 100% Grass-Fed Dairy Farm, wanna learn about what that truly means? We’d like you to have a chance to get to know more about what we do here and why we’re so proud of it. This discussion will involve a farm tour to give you a primer of how our dairy is run with plenty of time for questions as well. Hopefully, your curiosity will be peaked because we will have a nerdier discussion about grass-farming on Sunday.
4:00pm Experience a day in the life of a cheese maker with a tour of the creamery. Join third generation, Rory Chase, and learn how he turns Chaseholm Farm milk into delicious Farmstead cheeses and tour the facility to get a hands on experience. Limited to 25 people.
6:00am Milking @ the main Barn
10:00am Yoga on the lawn (bring your own mat)
1:00pm Whole Farm Ecosystem. The principles of grass farming require that the farm system be thought about in an holistic way. We work to create an active and healthy soil microbiology so that soil can support healthy plants that can be grazed by cows. How do we create an active soil microbiology? By grazing cows! Our increasing understanding of soil biology gives us hope that agriculture can be regenerative, instead of merely sustainable. Learn about the big picture behind what we do at Chaseholm and get a little geeky with me in this discussion of farming as a way to build ecosystem health and resiliency while making nourishing food for you and me.
6:00pm Milking @ the main Barn

ABOUT HUICHICA MUSIC FESTIVAL
Since 2010, Huichica Music Festival (pronounced wah-CHEE-ka) has provided a refreshing take on the music festival experience. A pioneer in a new breed of micro-festival, Huichica is built on the concept that wine, food, and music are best shared in beautiful, intimate settings with a warm and friendly attitude. Each year Huichica presents a hand-picked line up of psychedelic surf rock, indie and folk acts and pairs them with regional culinary talent and wines from Gundlach Bundschu Winery. Away from the crowds, there is no bad seat at this family-friendly boutique festival. Pack a blanket, relax and blend in with the crowd of musicians, wine enthusiasts, foodies and music fans.
Presented by (((FolkYEAH!))), Gundlach Bundschu’s sixth generation vintner Jeff Bundschu, and Eric D. Johnson.
Set amongst the stunning vineyards of Gundlach Bundschu Winery, Huichica West delivers two days of music, wine and food in a laid back atmosphere. There are four stages offering an ongoing exploration of music, the Hillside Amphitheater, the Cave Stage, the Giraffe Stage and the historic Old Redwood Barn. Food options are available from respected Bay Area restaurants, all paired with wines from Gundlach Bundschu. Camp at a stage, visit the kid zone with your little ones, or just roam around with a glass and take in the chill vibe.
Since 2016 Hudson Valley has hosted Huichica East, our East Coast incarnation of the popular Sonoma festival. Set at the beautiful and expansive Chaseholm Farm just south of Hudson, NY, Huichica East replicates the heart of Huichica, with epic pastoral settings, great music, tasty farm-grown food, and lovely people.
