Winters Farm to School
Special to the Express
Celebrating Yolo County’s rich agricultural heritage, tickets are now on sale for the Winters Farm to School 11th Summer Feast to be held from 11:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 25.
Catered by the Buckhorn Steak and Roadhouse, the feast will return to the historic Wolfskill Ranch in Winters. Attendance will be kept to 200 guests. Given that tickets have sold out each year, those wanting to attend should purchase their tickets early.
Tickets can be purchased at www.wintersfarmtoschool.com or ACE Hardware on Main Street in Winters. Tickets are $150 per person and must be purchased in advance of the event.
“We are excited to be hosting the feast again after two years of having the event cancelled because of COVID-19,” said Emarie VanGalio, a Winters Farm to School Board Member and Manager of Buckhorn Steak and Roadhouse. “Unfortunately, we have had to increase the price of tickets due to higher costs, but hopefully guests will understand this and join us again. We are so appreciative of our supporters who kept us going over the past two years. We couldn’t have done it without the financial help of families and businesses in our area.”
Winters Farm to School uses the funds raised at their feast to purchase fresh, local fruits, nuts and produce for our children’s school meal programs. Monies raised at the feast also keep the student garden at Waggoner Elementary School green and growing.
“Because we are an all-volunteer Board, all of the monies raised go toward boosting the health and well-being of kids in our community,” says Cathy Olsen, Winters Farm to School Board Member and Director of Food Services for the Winters Joint Unified School District. “And it’s great for our farmers because our school district buys a lot of the food they produce. You can’t get much fresher or more local than serving food grown by farmers right here in Winters.”
