Ag Day at the Capitol: A Beautiful Day to be a Farmer!Posted on March 20, 2013 by CDFA StaffFarmers love rain – so when Ag Day at the Capitol started out a little soggy, nobody really minded. Our aggies shared what they do with legislators, staffers and the public – including several hundred local school kids who enjoyed lunch courtesy of the “World’s Largest School Lunch Tray.”
Special thanks to the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s partners in organizing Ag Day, the California Women for Agriculture and the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom. Thanks also go to our emcee, Laura McIntosh with the PBS TV program Bringing It Home, as well as event sponsors the California Farm Bureau Federation, California Grown, the California Poultry Federation, Calpaca, the Citrus Pest and Disease Prevention Program, Del Monte Foods, Foster Farms, and John Deere.
It was a beautiful day to be a farmer. Enjoy these photos from Ag Day at the Capitol, and we hope to see you all again next year!
It’s back… Our third annual epic block party celebrating the Handle District and all things Farm to Fork in Sacramento!
Yelp, in partnership with the Handle District, Trinity Fresh, LOCA (Lodi Winegrape Commission), 1801 L Street and the Midtown Business Association, is taking over a block of L St. and the adjacent courtyard for a dizzying afternoon of free bites from an array of local restaurants, farm fresh produce, complimentary drinks, live music and much more. It all celebrates Sacramento’s reputation for farm-to-fork quality foods based on local sustainability and production. It’s not hard to handle…it’s Farm to Handle!
As a fun bonus, Laura McIntosh of the award-winning PBS series “Bringing It Home” (bringingithome.com) will be present to help with a People’s Choice Award for best dish. More details to come…
