Celebrating the rich harvest of Yolo County farms, tickets are on sale now for the Winters Farm to School program’s second annual Bastille Day Feast. More than 200 guests are expected at the event, which will run from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, July 13, at the historic Wolfskill Ranch in Winters.

Guests will gather at one, long table elegantly set under the canopy of 150-year-old olive trees lining the drive at the ranch.

Tickets are $100 per person and sold out last year, so early purchase is recommended. Tickets are available online at brownpaperticket.com or at Pacific Ace Hardware, 35 Main St. in Winters.

This year’s fundraiser promises to be an afternoon filled with delicious food, picturesque surroundings and delightful conversations among old and new friends. Starting the event will be a tour of the Wolfskill Ranch followed by aperitifs, wine and locally brewed beer from Berryessa Brewing Company in Winters.

After aperitifs begins the multi-course feast catered by The Buckhorn Steak and Roadhouse, featuring Rominger Ranch lamb prepared five ways; locally grown fruits, nuts and produce; and a special meringue with summer fruit and chantilly dessert. Selections of fine wines from Yolo County wineries will be poured throughout the meal.

Following the feast, guests will have the opportunity to bid on live auction items; among them are signed copies of all seven books by award-winning author Michael Pollan, including his newest publication, “Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation” about how cooking connects us to our natural world and to each other.

Also up for bids is a wine-tasting for 20 people at Scribner Bend Vineyards along the scenic Sacramento River; a Tuscan dinner for 10 prepared on-site by Davis chef Jonathan Moon; and a night out in Winters starting with drinks at the Mainstreet Cellars, dinner at Ficelle, a performance at The Palms Playhouse and an overnight stay at the Abbey House Inn.

Silent auction items include handmade jewelry and pottery, art, fine wines, gift certificates for gardeners, theater lovers, knitters and quilters and meals out around town.

Winters Farm to School was founded in 2011 with the mission to purchase local, fresh fruits, nuts and produce for school food programs.
