Follow the foragers: A chefs’ tour of Yolo County farms
The sun glares through the window of our pickup truck bouncing down a Yolo County access road, the summer heat shimmering up from the pavement.
Farms of every variety stretch to the horizon, from rows of almond, olive and fruit trees to seas of sunflowers, tangles of vegetable gardens and the occasional vineyard.
Amid this cornucopia of produce, chef Avery Struthers, riding in the backseat, has an idea.
Cole Ogando, owner of Preserve restaurant in nearby Winters, doing the driving, nods.
When I opened up Preserve with my wife, Sara, in 2011, the name wasn’t just about my grandmother’s recipe for jalapeño jelly, it was about preserving a way of life here, preserving the knowledge and the skills for us and for our kids.
The center is a farming education and incubation program, providing land and knowledge for startups like Green Almond.
Ogando, Struthers and I joined them picking peppers, tasting them as we went, sort of like Laverne and Shirley pulling beers off the assembly line.
Co-owner Lola Quasebarth, who studied sustainable agriculture at UC Davis, said growing food is her passion, “and it has to be, for the time we spend out here crawling around.”
“It’s good for us to get out here, talk to the farmers, walk the fields,” says Ogando.
The Center for Land-Based Learning’s fields for educating and incubating aspiring farmers.
Home of Preserve supplier Green Almond Farm.
What I’m trying to do here is something sustainable from a human perspective, from an ecosystem perspective, and yeah, economically as well — there’s no reason why I shouldn’t be able to make a decent middle-class living as a farmer.
After a modest 2½-acre land purchase, and six years with “a lot of trial and error and maxing out five credit cards,” Hay now has a working, profitable business supplying Bay Area restaurants and farmers’ markets with organic produce.
Certified organic farm with produce available at Bay Area farmers’ markets at Grand Lake in Oakland (Saturday), Stonestown Galleria in San Francisco (Sunday) and Civic Center San Rafael (Thursday).
The small, cracked wooden sign nailed to a roadside tree simply reads “Quail.”
Pulling up to a reconstructed 1926 classic Spanish Mission-style mansion, we see another small sign: a coat of arms painted on the front of the house with a quail within an upside-down horseshoe.
Brent Wolfe is indeed the king of quail.
Since 1983, he has been raising quail, now supplying his large, tender birds to restaurants like Chez Panisse, Cotogna and Oliveto and a flock of other restaurants.
“I’m no scientist,” he says as we walk past a dozen quail enclosures.
A couple thousand birds kick up dust and peck at seeds in a long warehouse-style barn.
The members of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation may have gained fame for their Cache Creek Casino, but they’re also in the olive oil business.
If anyone has claim to longtime roots in Yolo County, it’s this American Indian tribe.
The Seka (“blue”) Hills Olive Mill grows their product on 82 of the 14,000 acres of land the tribe owns, using the latest sustainable farming practices.
The production rooms feature industrial-size pressing machines, and centrifuges connect via shining pipes to three-story-tall steel tanks storing some of the 50,000 gallons of olive oil Seka Hills produces annually.
In the front of the Seka Hills building, a stylish tasting room welcomes guests for samples of olive oils, honeys, wines and a series of events.
The chefs at Preserve use Seka Hills’ olive oils to accent dishes and salads, an important part of the restaurant’s flavor profile.
At the end of a long, hot day touring farms, there’s nothing quite like a cool adult beverage.

Fittingly, their work will be a homegrown highlight of the contemporary art museum.
“Hoof & Foot: A Field Study” is a large video installation by San Francisco’s Chris Sollars drawing parallels between animals and students at UC Davis.
Sollars interviewed UC Davis faculty members and students about stress, conflicts and other topics to form the basis of his imagery and connections to animal life.
Videos, models, artifacts and drawings will shed light on the Shrem’s creation in “The Making of a Museum.”
New York emerging architects SO-IL and long-standing firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson — the former is best known for Kukje Gallery in Seoul, while the latter is acclaimed for its work with Apple, Pixar and Adobe — designed the Shrem with curved glass walls and interconnected outdoor and indoor spaces.

The Ramones, the Police, Talking Heads, Iggy Pop and Emmylou Harris all performed in the student-run Coffee House at UC Davis — and tickets cost as little as $3 a pop.
The UC Davis free-form radio station KDVS continues to train students to organize their own donation-funded punk shows in sticky, sweaty living rooms.
A student government group brought major contemporary acts like Drake, Flume and Muse to larger venues on campus throughout the years.
The volunteer group puts on concerts wherever they can happen — parks, bars, a rarely used theater — including the annual Davis Music Fest, a South by Southwest-style, multi-venue festival throughout downtown every June.
He says local music history and the university’s enormous presence certainly influence the city’s culture, but it’s up to residents to make sure Davis keeps its reputation as a hub of creativity.
The stunningly beautiful and modern performing arts center at UC Davis hosts some of the most exciting dance, speaker and multimedia events in the region.
Aromatic curries, neon tiki drinks and live music converge at this popular Thai restaurant on a busy strip of downtown Davis.
For the past decade, Kevin Wan has been booking primarily indie rock, pop and folk acts with an impressive knack for nabbing up-and-coming acts on the cusp of breaking out — think the Lumineers, Lord Huron, and the Head and the Heart.
Armadillo touts a diverse selection of constantly changing CDs and vinyl, and that diversity is reflected in who performs in-store, too: ska bands, acoustic singer-songwriters, funk troupes and garage-soul acts regularly play free gigs in the afternoons or early evenings.
The Turkovich family farms 6,000 acres in Winters, growing 15 crops, ranging from seed crops to basil to tomatoes.
Brother Danny is the founder of the Winter’s Cheese Co. The winery is run by Chris Turkovich and his wife, Luciana, who grew up in a winemaking family in the Mendoza region of Argentina.
After selling Toasted Head and RH Philips to Vincor, brothers Carl and John Giguiere started Matchbook, releasing their first vintage in 2004.
Carl farms the grapes and John and his wife, Lane, handle the business end.
The winery produces several brands, but Matchbook is made exclusively with estate-grown fruit from the warm Dunnigan Hills appellation.
In 1969, he co-founded Martinez Orchards grapevine nursery, supplying grafted rootstock to wineries throughout Napa, Sonoma and neighboring counties Siblings Dan Jr.
In 1968, Warren Bogle planted Petite Sirah and Chenin Blanc on his property in Clarksburg as a sort of experiment. Jody’s grandfather, founder Warren Bogle, was a teenager at the time. In 1978, they got a letter from August Sebastiani saying he didn’t need their grapes anymore. “Absolutely the most important thing our father, Chris, did in college was meet our mother, Patty,” Jody says.
At a time when the world is looking for faster ways to produce more, Clayton Kirchhoff’s plan to make less — and to do it slower — probably seemed like an odd business model.
 when Clayton started making Alluvion Tempranillo, as well as a few other wines, in Clarksburg (Yolo County) just five years ago, he had respect for the Delta’s blessings of good soil and sun.
If you met Clayton for five minutes (and didn’t taste his wine) you might just take in his beard, relaxed manner and big ideas and assume he was a dreamer.
 you’d find out how much he works (about 70 hours a week) and how much he drives (400 to 600 miles between his vineyards in Clarksburg and his job as assistant winemaker at White Rock Vineyard in Napa, where the owners kindly let him make his wine) and that he was born in Nebraska.
The bottled vintages contain fruit sourced from Clarksburg, but the plan is to grow fruit in-house (at his parents’ vineyard, also in Clarksburg).
 on a 3-acre plot at the Kirchhoff house on the Elk Slough, Clayton — with the help of his father, Craig — is slowly starting his own small fruit empire, growing Tempranillo, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvédre, Barbera, Chenin Blanc and few more varietals.
A recent Barbera crop that turned out fine but not outstanding has found divine purpose as the Communion wine at their family’s church, St.
