Saylor teams with Farm Bureau for ‘Crown Jewels’ tour

By From page A16 | August 18, 2013

Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor of Davis and the Yolo County Farm Bureau are collaborating on a tour of the county’s top three crops by volume — tomatoes, wine grapes and rice.

The “Crown Jewels of Yolo County” tour will take place on Saturday, Aug. 24, from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. Attendees will gather at the Yolo County Fairgrounds, 1250 Gum Ave. in Woodland, for a bus trip to the tour’s highlighted farms.

The tour will highlight the commodities of Muller Ranch (processing tomatoes and wine grapes) and Conaway Ranch (rice).

It is part of the “Yolo Farm to Every Fork” event series, highlighting farm contributions and food security issues in the region. Yolo Farm to Every Fork emerged from a partnership of Yolo Food Connect and the Yolo Ag & Food Alliance. These events dovetail with the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau’s “America’s Farm to Fork Capital” initiative.

“The ‘Yolo Farm to Every Fork’ event series aims to showcase the bounty of our region while highlighting food security issues in our county,” Saylor said. “We thank these farms for opening their land to us and for their contributions to agriculture in our county.”

Added Denise Sagara, executive director of the Yolo County Farm Bureau, “Seeing these growers in action will give tour guests a greater picture of the economy and the agricultural landscape of our county.”

Tickets are $45 and include lunch. RSVP to the Yolo County Farm Bureau at 530-662-6316 or [email protected].
