Art & Ag Farm Visit: Capay Valley Lavender

May 25 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Capay Valley Lavender Farm

The Art & Ag Project cultivates a dialogue between artists, farmers, and the community to raise awareness about the importance of preserving farmlands and the visual arts in Yolo County. A nationally recognized creative place making project, Art & Ag has invited farmers to open their land to local artists, providing unique opportunities to capture private landscapes that would otherwise remain inaccessible and unseen. Each month, artists visit a different farm where they can meet the farm owners, paint en plein air, or take photographs. 

For visiting artists, the lavender plants won’t all be in full flower thanks to the extended cold winter weather. However, there is still plenty to see and experience. The decorative purple and white irises near the barn, the recently planted 10-acre olive orchard, the new greenhouse (now holding milkweed plants as part of the Xerces Foundation Project to support the Monarch butterfly population), the distillery, and of course the farm store which is filled will lavender infused items from baking mixes and chocolate bars to lotions and sachets. The property also provides vistas of neighboring farmhouses set against the Capay Valley hills where the grasses are gradually shifting to a mixture of greens and yellows.

Artists may arrive any time within the event time frame and ust leave the property by noon. To RSVP contact jpurnell@yoloarts.org
