FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LAST FARM FRESH TO YOU FARM TOUR OF THE YEAR SLATED FOR THIS WEEKEND
Guests will be treated to free pumpkins
Capay, Calif., Oct. 7, 2013 ─ Farm Fresh To You (www.farmfreshtoyou.com), the local, organic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) produce delivery program, invites the public to its farm, Capay Organic, in Yolo County for its last regular farm tour of the year. Guest will each receive a free pumpkin while supplies last.
The tour will take place on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The farm’s address is 23800 State Highway 16, Capay, Calif., 95607.
The farm’s tractor tram will tour guests around the farm to see winter veggies growing in the fields and citrus starting to mature. Kids can enjoy pumpkin painting, face painting and a composting demonstration. The 4-H petting zoo will include sheep, cows and goats.
“October is one of our favorite months to hold a farm tour. The warm, fall sunshine has replaced the heat of summer, and visitors enjoy seeing what we have in the ground for winter. Giving away free pumpkins to the community is an annual rite of autumn here on the farm,” said Thaddeus Barsotti, chief farmer/co-CEO.
There will be an organic produce market stand where guests can also 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.
The farm is located 90 miles northeast of San Francisco and 30 minutes northwest of Sacramento. For more event details, go to the Farm Fresh To You Facebook page events tab. (http://www.facebook.com/farmfreshtoyou).
