A flock of fowl thank-yous

Yolo Farm to Fork’s Davis Farm to School Program wishes to acknowledge four large flocks of participants and contributors for the Tour de Cluck. The first biggest thank you goes to more than 120 volunteers who assisted over three months to make the fourth annual Tour de Cluck a success.

The funds generated for this event go toward continuing the gardens, waste management and nutritional efforts in the Davis schools, crowing the farm to school message to the rest of Yolo County schools to join in the fun.

Participating coop owners offered up a poultrypalooza by generously sharing their time and talents in hosting inquisitive coop crawlers into their back yards. A total of 357 guests biked and toured the 17 coops on May 25.

Ten restaurants and delis participated in the first-ever Fowl Food Frolic. There were more than 250 fowl-eggscellent signature dishes purchased for a week at Nugget Deli at Oak Tree Plaza and South Davis, Whole Foods Deli, the Davis Graduate, Our House, Osteria Fasulo, Tucos, Caffé Italia and Dos Coyotes Border Cafe in North and South Davis.

With each “fowl” dish ordered, the customer received a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of eight beautiful gift baskets stuffed with delightful treats from businesses. The business contributors were National Hotel in Jackson; Traverso Wines; Davis Farmers Market postcards along with items from Velma Edwards and Bee Happy candle creator from the market; and gift certificates from Nugget Market, Whole Foods, Osteria Fasulo, Higby’s Country Feed and Seed in Dixon, Lasting Impressions, Davis Hallmark Inn, Blake’s Heating, Air and Gutters, Davis Graduate and Caffé Italia.

The lucky winners of the generous business offering raffle were Marika Papagianis, Paul Falzone, Rich Gagnon and Dana Taylor, Vickie Gomez, James Cubbage, Rosemary Martin-Ocampo, Diane Pierzinski and Pat Reese.

Mark your 2014 calendar for the fifth annual Tour de Cluck event. We are looking at making the entire month of May all about bicycles and chickens and whatever else we can cackle about and have fun.
