Farm Fresh To You—The Farm And Events in Capay Valley

June 2012:

On Saturday June 14th the Capay Valley will host the Annual Tomato Festival near Sacramento, California and nearr the casmpus of the University of California at Davis.

Capay Tomato is an heirloom tomato presented by Farm Fresh To You which provides home delivered farm fresh fruits and vegetables direct from their Capay Valley farm and other nearby farms.

It’s not just a treat to get vegetables and fruits just off the farm, it’s gotten to be almost a necessity.  Who doesn’t want organic fresh produce picked that day?  Who doesn’t visit their local farmers markets for that reason?

The Capay Tomato Festival “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

La Tomatina, The Tomato Fight of Spain

La Tomatina is an annual festival in Spain.

Like the Running of The Bulls, La Tomatina attracts a lot of folks into a small Spanish town to participate in a wild somewhat whacky event.

When you participate in La Tomatina you arm yourself with a shitload of ripe tomatoes and you throw them at everyone you can see.  Of course, while you are aiming at them they are throwing tomatoes at you!  Imagine the great destruction!!

When I was younger I always dreamed of going to Pamplona, Spain and running with the bulls.  Now, I think throwing tomatoes might be more my speed.

Or maybe just because my hometown Sacramento is a Spanish name plus it used to often be called Sacratomato because we had quite a few tomato canneries.  In the summer I swear I can still smell the tomatoes.

I missed La Tomatina this year, but the great thing about an event like this…..there is always next year!

They actually have Tomatina Tours and will fly you to Spain just for this fantastic food fight.

I tell ya, Those Spaniards now how to throw a party.
