Capay Tomato Festival

Presented by Farm Fresh To You, Capay Tomato is an heirloom tomato tasting and music festival that takes place on our farm in Capay, 30 minutes Northwest of Davis and 1 hour North of the Bay Area. The casual farm setting with old growth oak trees providing shade and hay bail seating is ideal for enjoying the live bluegrass music and ripe, mid-summer tomatoes.

This year’s Capay Tomato will take place on Saturday, July 10th. The event starts at 5pm, but camping guests can check in at 4pm. Activities, such as farm tours, trailer rides and art activities will be going from 5pm-6pm. At 6pm, the tomato tasting will take place. Live bands will play from 7pm-11pm. Guests can bring picnics. Farm-fresh tacos and popsicles will be available for purchase.

Local wine and beer sales and a silent auction will benefit The Kathleen Barsotti Non-Profit for Sustainable Agriculture (KBNP). Our 2010 non-profit scholarship recipient will be introduced at the event. Kathy founded Capay Organic and Farm Fresh To You – she was an innovative farmer and entrepreneur – she was also one of the first farmers to introduce heirloom tomatoes in Northern California. KBNP was set up to promote sustainability.
