The Winters Chamber of Commerce will hold its first agri-tour of the year at K & J Orchard on Wednesday, March 26. The family-owned and -operated conventional farm grows a diverse selection of crops on 17 acres.

Visitors will have an opportunity to stroll through the orchards with co-owner Kalayada Beutel and her son-in-law Tim Deasy, who is in charge of day-to-day operations with his wife Aomboon. K & J Orchard is a year-round farm, and harvest usually begins in May with cherries, apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots. They grow an impressive 18 different varieties of cherries.

During the summer, their harvest continues with apples, pears, nuts, citrus fruits and persimmons, along with many others.

On the day of the tour, participants will start their morning at 9 a.m. at Steady Eddy’s Coffee House, 5 E. Main St., where they will enjoy a coffee and pastry of choice. After their breakfast snack, participants will be escorted to K & J Orchard.
After touring the orchard, participants will be taken to The Clayground at 9 E. Main St., where owner Rebecca Bresnick Holmes will treat participants to a ceramic demonstration. Local artists sell their handcrafted one-of-a-kind goods at The Clayground, including beeswax candles, locally made soaps and lotions, jewelry, handcrafted knitwear and much more.
The tour will then move on to Turkovich Family Wines’ tasting room 304 Railroad Ave., where participants can sit and enjoy a small wine-tasting. Turkovich Family Wines is a family-owned and -operated winery. The tasting room additionally features cheese from the Winters Cheese Company.
The day will end with lunch at Preserve Public House at 200 Railroad Ave., known for its farm-to-table style food. The restaurant also offers an array of goods for sale, including jalapeño jelly, a variety of sea salts and dried fruit.
The tour costs $50, all-inclusive. For more information or to sign up, contact Winters Chamber Executive Director Sheri Neal at 530-795-2325 or [email protected].
