A delicious, multi-course feast featuring foods grown right here in Yolo County; fine wines produced locally served throughout the afternoon; a gorgeous setting celebrating Yolo County’s rich agricultural heritage; a silent and live auction with one-of-a-kind items donated by local artists, businesses and families; and the opportunity to share conversation with friends new and old under the shade of a 150-year old pecan tree. If you add all of these things together, you will be a guest at Winters Farm to School’s Summer Solstice Feast.
To be held on Saturday, June 23, from 11:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the historic Wolfskill Ranch, this favorite summer event not only supports a great cause, it has become a true celebration of Yolo County’s rich agricultural bounty. Farmers dotting the landscape in Yolo County donate all the food, so everything served is fresh and in season.
Complementing the multi-course, family-style meal are fine wines donated by Yolo County wineries. Berryessa Brewery donates cool, refreshing beer. UC Davis and the USDA donate the site (an active agricultural research station) and those who purchase a ticket have the opportunity to tour the site prior to the feast.
This event has sold out every year, so those wishing to attend are encouraged to purchase tickets now. Tickets are $100 per person if purchased before May 1 and $125 thereafter. Tickets are available at ACE Hardware on Main Street in Winters, online at wintersfarmtoschool.com or by calling 530-795-6109.
