Farm Fresh To You, the organic produce home delivery service, invites the public to its farm in Capay for a Cinco de Mayo celebration on Saturday, May 5, from 5 to 11 p.m.
The farm is at 23800 Highway 16.
“This is a Cinco de Mayo celebration for the whole family, and we are excited to host an evening of local food, music and fun at our farm,” said Thaddeus Barsotti, farmer and co-owner of Farm Fresh To You. “We’re encouraging visitors to make a weekend out of this event and camp overnight at the farm in our farm orchards.”
Cinco de Mayo event activities include tractor tram farm tours, kids’ crafts, tortilla-making demonstrations, strawberry harvesting, tomato planting, soccer games and dancing to the live music of Innersoul, a nine-piece band that rocks R&B and Latin dance classics. Innersoul will take the stage from 7 to 10 p.m.
The farm will serve fresh tacos and burritos prepared with organic produce from the farm, agua frescas, beer, wine and margaritas. Farm fruits and veggies and other healthy snacks will also be available for purchase at the market stand. Visitors also may bring their own food and picnic.
Tickets are $20 per car through Friday, May 4, or $25 per car at the farm on event day. Tickets are available at cincodemayocapay.eventbrite.com.
All event proceeds benefit The Kathleen Barsotti Non-Profit for Sustainable Agriculture. The foundation gives an annual scholarship to a high school senior planning on pursuing a sustainable agriculture career. It also donates school supplies to farmworkers’ families in the Capay Valley.
