2014 Event Season Kick-Off!

During event season we look forward to welcoming guests to our farm to see sustainable agriculture in action and learn how it benefits our local economy and community. In the last year, we've also been thrilled to add farm-to-table, seasonal dinners to our events calendar. For these dinners your farmer, Thaddeus, collaborates with progressive local chefs and restaurants who pride themselves on finding the best locally and sustainably-grown, organic produce and artisan products.

Here's a glimpse of the fun we had at the first five events of our 2014 season. Hope to see you at an upcoming farm event!

Seasonal Dinner at Wilshire Restaurant in Santa Monica

This past February, guests enjoyed a unique dining experience with their farmer Thaddeus at the Wilshire Restaurant in Santa Monica. The chef prepared a delectable 4-course meal with some of the season's best, organic ingredients from our Farm Fresh To You farm, Capay Organic.

The evening began with the opportunity to mingle with Thaddeus and winemakers from Topanga Vineyards and Palmina Winery. During the dinner, Thaddeus, the Wilshire team and winemakers shared about the farm-fresh ingredients, the making of the meal and the craft of wine-making and food-pairing. Our Seasonal Dinners benefit the Kathleen Barsotti Non-Profit for Sustainable Agriculture.

Tractor tours, a harvest activity and beautiful scenery are the highlights of our Northern California farm events. Guests can picnic and there are plenty of activities for both kids and adults. We offer farm-fresh produce at our market stand. Listen in on a Farm Talk from Thaddeus or one of our farm staff.  We encourage you to come and connect with the land that grows your food.
