A Capay Valley farm tour is planned as part of the “Yolo Farm to Every Fork” event series, highlighting county farm contributions and food security issues. On Saturday, Sept. 14, the group will stop at Fiddlers Green (farm tour), Yocha Dehe Olive Mill (with olive oil tasting) and Capay Organic (farm tour, harvest activity).

Guests will meet at the Yolo County Fairgrounds at 1250 Gum Ave. in Woodland, at 1 p.m. that day. The tour bus will return to the fairgrounds at 8 p.m.

The $50 ticket includes bus “road food” from Monticello Seasonal Cuisine and a dinner of artisanal pizzas with farm-fresh produce from Caffé Italia’s wood-fire pizza oven and more. Tickets must be purchased in advance at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/449259.

Yolo Farm to Every Fork emerged from a partnership of Yolo Food Connect and Yolo Ag & Food Alliance. These events dovetail with the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau’s “America’s Farm to Fork Capital” initiative.

“This tour of the Capay Valley will be an intimate look at working farms that contribute great products to our local economy,” said Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor. “This is a Yolo Farm to Every Fork event that will showcase the beauty and the bounty of our region.”
