Pick strawberries at Capay Valley farm tour

By From page A8 | May 09, 2012

Community members are invited to visit a Capay Valley farm and pick strawberries on Saturday, May 12, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The address of Farm Fresh To You, an organic produce home delivery CSA service, is 23800 State Highway 16 in Capay.

“The strawberries we grow in Capay are especially sweet and a welcome sign of spring,” said Thaddeus Barsotti, farmer and co-owner of Farm Fresh To You. “We welcome guests to our farm so that they can connect to the land and the people that grow our food.”

Visitors will be able to go into the field and harvest delicious, ripe strawberries as the free harvest activity. The farm’s tractor tram will tour guests around the farm to see spring fruits and veggies growing in the fields.

There will be an organic produce market stand where guests can also buy fresh produce in bulk. Kids can do a craft and experiment with bubble wands with lots of room to run and play.

Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic and spend the afternoon listening to honky tonk music by The Bottom Dwellers of Woodland.

Seka Hills Winery also will offer wine and olive oil tasting at the event.

Admission is $8 general, $5 for Farm Fresh To You customers and free for children 12 and under.
