Locals can tour Yolo cattle ranch

The Winters Chamber of Commerce will offer its second agritour of the year at Yolo Land and Cattle Co. on Wednesday, May 22. Participants will meet at 9 a.m. at Steady Eddy’s Coffee House,  5 E. Main St. in downtown Winters.

Once checked in, participants will be treated to a pastry and beverage of choice at Steady Eddy’s. At 9:30 a.m., all will be transported out to Yolo Land and Cattle Co. on County Road 25. Yolo Land and Cattle Co. is a family-owned business established in 1976 by Henry H. Stone. Participants should dress for a hand-on experience at the ranch.

Once out at the Yolo Land and Cattle Co., Casey and Angela Stone will escort participants around the ranch. Participants will be able to enjoy a hay ride while touring part of the 75,000-acre ranch. The husband-and-wife duo will inform participants about modern-day cattle production and the conservation of the land.

“We love hosting visitors at our ranch; it gives us a chance to connect with urban consumers and show them modern-day cattle production. We even converted a few vegetarians,” Casey Stone said in a news release.

Participants will enjoy lunch of 100 percent grass-fed beef burgers along with two side dishes. Yolo Land and Cattle beef jerky and other products will be available for purchase.

After lunch, participants will taste chocolate and caramel at RootStock, 22 Main St. in downtown Winters.

Tour tickets are $40. For reservations, call the Winters Chamber of Commerce at 530-795-2329 or email [email protected].
