We shared A Day in the Country

Yolo Land Trust thanks the Yolo County community for a successful A Day in the Country, held Sept. 8 at Taber Ranch Vineyards. The event marked the 25th anniversary of Yolo Land Trust.

Taber Ranch owners and operators John and Dawn Martin, Jean Chevalier and Natalie and Paul Klempau donated their beautiful venue, and more than 750 guests braved the heat to share in Yolo County’s bounty. Local chefs from Monticello Cuisine, Osteria Fasulo, Fat Face, Ikeda’s, Konditorei Austrian Pastry Café, Buckhorn Catering and Kitchen 428 created sumptuous food along with chefs from 18 other Northern California restaurants.

Proceeds from A Day in the Country help us conserve farmland in Yolo County. Thanks to the growers and producers who donated fruits, vegetables and protein: Bledsoe Pork, California Endive Farm, Capay Canyon Ranch, Capay Organic/Farm Fresh to You, Cheese Board Collective, Chow Down Farm, Coco Ranch, Cow Girl Creamery, Del Rio Botanical, Durst Organic Growers, Full Belly Farm & Kitchen, Gold Oak Ranch, Good Humus, Henry’s Bullfrog Bees, Klingler Ranch, Kool Korn by Farm Direct, Live Oak Farm, Longview Ranch, Manas Ranch, Panorama Grass Fed Meats, Pasture 42, Produce Express, Riverdog Farm, Short Night Farm, Sola Bee Farms, Taber Ranch, Wind Dancer Ranch, Winters Cheese Company, Yolo Land & Cattle and Yolo Vineyards & Olive Oil Company.

We appreciate the contribution to the festive atmosphere by these Yolo County vintners and breweries: Berryessa Gap, Berryessa Brewing Company, Bogle Winery, Capay Valley Vineyards, Crew Wine Company, Heringer Estates, Marr Cellars, Putah Creek Winery, Route 3 Wines, Ruhstaller Beer, Simas Family Vineyard, Sundstrom Hill Winery, Taber Vineyards, Turkovich Winery and Zina Hill.
