Two of the oldest Winters area farms will open for the next Winters History Project event at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 1, at the Wolfskill Farm, 4334 Putah Creek Road, southwest of Winters.

Visitors will get a taste of nature at UC Davis Wolfskill Experimental Orchards, where many fruit and nut varieties are bred or improved, along with the UCD Olive Center.

The morning panel of speakers features Theodore DeJong, professor of pomology and director of the Wolfskill Orchards; Katherine Pope, fruit tree adviser for Yolo, Solano and Sacramento counties;Sarah Castro, UCD prune breeder; and Carolyn DeBuse, field curator USDA National Clonal Repository.

Also speaking is Gloria Lopez, author of “An American Paella: Spain Comes to the Upper Vaca Valley,” whose family were early Spanish settlers.

Lunch will be served by Anderson Family caterers during a symposium at noon at the second historic farm, the 1897 W.J.Pleasants-Hoskins ranch — 7 miles southwest of Wolfskill — at 8212 Pleasants Valley Road. Winters historian Joann Larkey, chair of the Winters History project, will describe the early fruit district and introduce ranch owner Ethel Hoskins, who found a way to keep and restore her grandfather’s ranch.
