Prunes take center stage at last agri-tour of the summer

The Winters Chamber of Commerce will hold its final agri-tour of the year on Wednesday, Aug. 27, at Martinez Ranch on Putah Creek Road. Owner Dan Martinez will draw on more than a century of family farming history in Yolo County as he leads the tour.

The Martinez Ranch consists of 400 acres of farmland. Participants will learn specifically about the prune farming operations, walking through the orchard and touring the drying facility.

Participants then will be escorted to lunch at Preserve Public House, 200 Railroad Ave. in downtown Winters. The restaurant specializes in locally sourced cuisine.

Participants then will stroll to neighboring RootStock Gifts, 22 Main St., for an exclusive olive oil tasting from a local producer.

The day will begin with a 9 a.m. check-in at Steady Eddy’s Coffee House, 5 E. Main St., where participants will have a chance to enjoy a pastry and beverage before leaving on the tour, which costs $50, all-inclusive.

Participants should wWear shoes suitable for walking in an orchard. For more information and to sign up, call Winters Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sheri Neal at 530-795-2329.
