The Yolo Land Trust announces that its signature event, “A Day in the Country,” will be held this year from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, at Taber Ranch Vineyard and Event Center on County Road 81 in Capay.
The event features tastings from top chefs representing more than 20 restaurants throughout Northern California. Each chef creates special dishes featuring food grown in Yolo County. Farms, ranches and vineyards throughout the county join in providing food and wine to sample. Live music by the Plainfield Pickers rounds it off to make it an enjoyable day for the whole family.
Taber Ranch Vineyard and Event Center is on a 500-acre ranch in Capay Valley. This secluded country setting is surrounded by hillsides of lavender and vineyards with olive and almond trees.
“A Day in the Country” celebrates the Yolo Land Trust’s 25 years of farmland conservation. It has worked with willing landowners to permanently conserve more than 10,000 acres of agricultural land, riparian corridors and Swainson’s hawk habitat in Yolo County, all of which remain in private ownership and on Yolo County’s tax rolls.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for this year’s event. The event sold out last year, so sponsors and those seeking tickets are encouraged to make arrangements early. Visit www.yololandtrust.org or call Gina Nunes at 530-662-1110.
