The Yolo Land Trust thanks the greater Yolo County community and beyond for a successful “A Day in the Country” held on Sept. 11 at Park Winters.

Park Winters owners Rafael Galiano, John Martin and Summer Rodman opened their gardens to more than 700 guests who enjoyed the scrumptious food created by Yolo County chefs from Buckhorn Catering, C2 Steak, Fat Face, Ikedas, Konditorei Austrian Pastry Cafe, Monticello Cuisine, Nugget Market Kitchen, Osteria Fasulo, Silvina’s Basket, Tazzini Bistro and Tucos Wine Market and Cafe, plus chefs from 18 other Northern California restaurants.

The proceeds from “A Day in the Country” help us protect farmland in Yolo County. Thanks to the local growers and producers who made the event possible by their donations of meat, fruits and vegetables: Bledsoe Pork, Cache Creek Meat, Capay Canyon Ranch, Capay Organic, Copper Hill Olive Oil, Del Rio Botanical, Dewey Farm, Dixon Ridge Farms, Dumars Olive Oil Co., Full Belly Farm and Kitchen, Good Humus Produce, Henry’s Bullfrog Bees and PURE, Live Oak Farm, Longview Ranch, Lucky Dog Ranch, Manas Ranch/Double Bar-O Angus, McDonald Orchards, Muller Ranch & Yolo Vineyards, Riverdog Farm, Rominger Brothers Farm, Short Night Farm, Terra Firma, Winters Cheese Company and Wright Cakes.

Special guests who attended included Gov. Jerry Brown, Congressman John Garamendi, California Food and Agriculture Secretary Karen Ross and state Sen. Lois Wolk.

Special thanks to our major sponsors, Farm Credit West, Monsanto, Seminis and Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, and 65 other sponsors, silent auction donors and business who donated in-kind services and guests who shared an amazing Day in the Country with us. We are grateful for your support of the Yolo Land Trust’s mission of conservation of farmland and habitat lands. See you next year on Sept. 9.
