Farm Fresh to You and Capay Organic invite the public to Capay Crush, the farm’s first grape festival that will celebrate the crush season, from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25.

The farm is at 23800 Highway 16, Capay.

“We love inviting people out to our farm to take in the farm land during the fall,” said Thaddeus Barsotti, farmer and co-owner, in a news release. “For us, sharing the farm with others and introducing people to where their food is grown is one of our primary missions. We’re especially excited to partner with local wineries to celebrate local agriculture.”

Event proceeds benefit the Kathleen Barsotti Non-Profit for Sustainable Agriculture, which gives an annual scholarship to a high school senior planning to pursue a field related to sustainable agriculture.

The group also donates school supplies to farmworker families in the Capay Valley. This August, the nonprofit donated almost 400 backpacks stocked with school supplies for local students.

The grape festival will feature wine tasting, live music and more. Participating wineries include Berryessa Gap, Capay Valley Vineyards, Rominger West, Seka Hills, Simas Family Vineyards and  Turkovich Family Wines.

David Block, professor and chairman of the department of viticulture and enology at UC Davis, will give a short lecture at the event.

The farm will have a grape harvest and stomping in half barrels. Tram tours of the farm will run every 20 minutes until dusk, allowing guests to see the farm land at the end of summer with fall vegetables starting to grow.

Tacos made from fresh produce and farm stand snacks will be sold. Guests also may bring their own picnics. At dusk, guests can gather around an evening bonfire and listen to live music from Boca Do Rio and Kelly McFarling.

Tickets are on sale now through Tuesday, Sept. 20, for $20 per car. Tickets will be sold at the farm on event day for $25 per person. To purchase tickets, go to http://capaycrush.eventbrite.com.

Capay Organic distributes organic produce to wholesalers, restaurants, grocery stores and at farmers markets. Founded in 1976, the farm celebrates its 35th anniversary this year.
