Yolo County is agriculture land, and there are many ways to get out and experience it.
As Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor explained, “Yolo County plays a unique role in our region. When we talk about a ‘farm to fork’ effort in the Sacramento region, more often than not, the farm is in Yolo County.
“Our county’s climate, soil, talent and research create one of the finest agricultural settings in the world. Many of us are fortunate to shop at some of the best farmers markets in the nation, shop at grocery stores that stock produce from local farms and subscribe to Community Supported Agriculture programs.”
So if you want to harvest your own summer fruits or find the best Halloween pumpkin, explore the world of gourds, channel your inner cowboy, and learn how a working farm operates, there are many farm tours offered in Yolo County.
* More information: The Yolo County Visitors Bureau has a listing of more than 20 farms and ranches that participate in tours and offer a wide variety of seasonal events. www.yolocvb.net/farm-tours.html
