Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at the farm

Cinco de Mayo event activities at Capay Organic on May 4 will include tortilla-making demonstrations, as well as tractor-tram farm tours, kids' arts and crafts, tomato planting, strawberry harvesting, soccer games and dancing to live mariachi music and the band Yolo Mambo.

Farm Fresh To You, a local, organic Community Supported Agriculture produce delivery program, invites the public to its farm, Capay Organic, in Yolo County for its second annual Cinco de Mayo celebration on Saturday, May 4, from 5 to 11 p.m. The farm is at 23800 State Highway 16, Capay.
“This is a Cinco de Mayo celebration for the whole family, and we are excited to host an evening of local food, music and fun at our farm,” said Thaddeus Barsotti, farmer and co-owner of Farm Fresh To You. “We encourage visitors to make a weekend out of this event and camp overnight at the farm in our orchards. Visitors can also plant tomatoes and return for July’s Capay Tomato event to see how their plants have grown.”
Cinco de Mayo event activities include tractor-tram farm tours, kids’ arts and crafts, tortilla-making demonstrations, tomato planting, strawberry harvesting, soccer games and dancing to live mariachi music and the band Yolo Mambo. The band will take the stage from 5 to 7 p.m. Mariachi Los Gallos will entertain from 7:45 to 9:45 p.m.
Available for purchase will be: fresh tacos and burritos prepared with organic produce from the farm; beer, wine and margaritas; farm fruits and vegetables; sandwiches; Pop Nation popsicles; and other healthy snacks. Visitors may also bring their own food and picnic.
Tickets are available at http://capaycincodemayo2013.eventbrite.com/
Prices are $15 per person through Friday, May 3, $20 per person at the farm on event day, and free for kids 12 and under.
Visitors can camp overnight at the farm in the fruit orchards. Reserve a campsite through the Eventbrite website for $35 through Friday, May 3, or for $40 on event day. Camp sites are first-come, first-served. Campers may stay on the farm until 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 5. One car is allowed per 15-foot wide site extending the length of the orchard row.
All event proceeds benefit The Kathleen Barsotti Non-Profit for Sustainable Agriculture. The foundation gives an annual scholarship to a high school senior planning on pursuing a sustainable agriculture career. It also donates backpacks and school supplies to farmworkers’ families in the Capay Valley.
