FARM FRESH TO YOU ANNOUNCES 2014 EVENT SEASON
March Farm Tour Kicks Off The Fun with Beets & Carrots Harvest Activity

Capay, Calif., Feb. 27, 2013 ─ Farm Fresh To You (www.farmfreshtoyou.com), the local, organic CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and home delivery service and its farm, Capay Organic, announced its 2014 event season today.

The March Farm Tour at Capay Organic Farm in Yolo County on Saturday, March 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. will kick off the 2014 event season. The farm’s address is 23800 State Highway 16, Capay, Calif., 95607. Nearly 7,000 people visited the farm last year throughout the event season.

The farm’s tractor tram will tour guests around the farm to see spring veggies growing in the fields and fruit trees in bloom. Visitors can harvest beets and carrots from the field and take them home for dinner. There will also be a sustainable agriculture talk led by chief farmer Thaddeus Barsotti.

“For over 35 years, our farm has worked to change the food system by providing a direct link to the farm that grows your food,” said Barsotti. “We welcome guests to our farm to see sustainable agriculture in action to learn how it benefits our local economy and community.”

There will be an organic produce market stand where guests can buy farm-fresh produce in bulk. Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic and spend the afternoon. Admission is $5 for per adult. Kids 12 and under are free.
