Harvest beets and carrots at farm tour Saturday

From page A3 | March 05, 2014 |

A farm tour Saturday at Capay Organic will kick off the event season sponsored by Farm Fresh To You, a local, organic Community Supported Agriculture delivery service.

The tour will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 23800 State Highway 16 in Capay. Nearly 7,000 people visited the farm last year throughout the event season.

A tractor tram will tour guests around the farm to see spring veggies growing in the fields and fruit trees in bloom. Visitors can harvest beets and carrots from the field and take them home for dinner. Chief farmer Thaddeus Barsotti will give a talk on sustainable agriculture.

“For over 35 years, our farm has worked to change the food system by providing a direct link to the farm that grows your food,” Barsotti said. “We welcome guests to our farm to see sustainable agriculture in action to learn how it benefits our local economy and community.”

Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic and spend the afternoon. Admission is $5 per adult, and kids 12 and under are free.

Save the dates for the following upcoming 2014 farm events:

* Farm tours Saturdays, April 12, Aug. 9 and Oct. 11; and

* Special events benefiting the Kathleen Barsotti Non-Profit for Sustainable Agriculture: Cinco de Mayo, Saturday, May 3; Capay Tomato Festival, Saturday, July 19; and Capay Crush, Saturday, Sept. 20.

In addition, the farm will host its farm-to-table dinner Outstanding in the Field on Saturday, June 14. Tickets go on sale for this dinner at www.outstandinginthefield.com on March 20 and usually sell out within 48 hours.
