A second-generation farm built on the idea of producing the best tasting fruits and vegetables on the market, Capay Organic dates back to the early days of the organic foods movement. Over the years, the Capay family has introduced new crops and techniques, becoming next-gen pioneers in sustainable cultivation of varied crops, including cherry tomatoes, ambrosia melons, and even sweet-smelling sweet pea flowers. Farm tours and activities for the whole family are also a hallmark at Capay Organic. Hop on a tractor and listen to a farmhand talk about what’s in season. Get your hands dirty and help harvest produce, then take it home with you. Spread out a picnic beneath a shady tree to soak in the view of cultivated fields, orchards, and golden hills in the distance. At the farm, July means the annual tomato festival, and September brings Capay Crush, a harvest grape celebration. Check Capay’s calendar for seasonal farm dinners and sign up for “Meet the Farmer” dinners at such nearby Sacramento restaurants as Grange at the Citizen Hotel.
