A Bastille Day Feast, celebrating local food and flavors in the French style will be served to 175 people seated at a single long, white tablecloth- covered table set between the towering, 150-year old olive trees at the historic Wolfskill Ranch. The Wolfskill USDA National Clonal Germplasm Repository is housed here, with a collection of thousands of varieties of grapes, olives, figs, kiwis, stone fruits and more, and its Director, Dr. John Preece will be giving tours of the property prior to lunch. There will also be an auction of one-of-a-kind food and wine related items.
Local lamb from Rominger Ranch is the centerpiece of the meal, and local wines will be poured throughout.
The event is a fundraiser for the Winters Farm to School program whose mission is to help the Student Nutrition Services purchase and serve fresh, local food for school lunch.
