  • TEHAMA TRAIL TO HOLD FOURTH ANNUAL PASSPORT WEEKEND EVENT

    March 10, 2014

    Tehama Farmers Will Open Their Farms To The Public, Offering Tastings and Tours

    Do you enjoy driving down back country roads through farms, orchards and vineyards? Do you love sampling fresh food and fine wines? What about visiting with the farmers who grow your food? If your answer is “yes” we have the perfect adventure for you.

    Tehama Trail farmers invite you to explore local farms, experience fresh flavors and excite your senses at the Fourth Annual Passport Weekend, June 7 – 8.

    Mark your calendars for this special two-day event when Tehama County farmers will be doing something they don’t normally do throughout the rest of the year. “We open our farms to the public, giving the community a chance to see where their food comes from,” says Katie Bianchi, chairperson for Passport Weekend.

    Passport Weekend is a self-guided agricultural tour that gives event goers the chance to explore Tehama County farms at their own pace. An easy-to-follow map highlighting the locations of participating farmers will be provided with the purchase of each ticket. For those who prefer a guided, more structured trip, shuttles will be provided.

    Guests will have the opportunity to visit family farms that produce a variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beef, olives and olive oil. Vineyards known for producing award-winning wines can be found along the trail as well. Some of the Tehama Trail farmers have unique events planned. “We’re going to have hay ride tours back to the main ranch and river. We’ll talk about walnuts and give guests a chance to walk around the orchard,” says Bianchi, co-owner of Bianchi Orchards in Los Molinos.

    What are other farmers planning? Just up the hill in Manton, Cedar Crest Vineyards will be hosting a music festival and wine tasting, while Tehama Oaks in Red Bluff plans to host a barrel tasting. Country Haven at the Red Barn in Los Molinos will be offering specials on a variety of locally grown and produced goods. And this is just a sampling of what awaits.

    This year’s agricultural adventure promises to be better than ever. “We’ve formed a committee this year … we are very organized,” says Bianchi. “We looked at the past years and said, ‘What worked, what didn’t work, and let’s change it.’ This year’s event will be a cohesive, enjoyable experience.”

    Tickets for Passport Weekend go on sale April 1 at Enjoy the Store in Red Bluff and Redding, and at the Tehama County Visitor Center.

    Tehama Trail is a partnership between farmers to bring awareness to the abundance of good food right here in our community. Passport Weekend is an experiential fundraising event that promotes local farms and fresh food, and helps keep farmers on their land for generations to come.
