Pick Your Own Peaches and Your Own Path in Yolo County

Pick Your Own Peaches and Your Own Path in Yolo County

By California.com
May 21, 2019

Located in the vast Sacramento Valley, Yolo County serves as a prominent agricultural region with a bounty of fruits, flowers, and of course, rolling hills coated in line after line of precisely placed grapevines. Yolo County summons visitors of all ages and holds world-class educational programs, organic farms, and incredibly rich soil. The healthy soil, generally warm weather conditions, and gentle breeze lend themselves to the diverse flavor profiles and playfully vibrant characteristics of the many grape varietals growing in the county, including Syrah, Chardonnay, and Malbec.

Travel through the air, high above the valley in a hot-air balloon overlooking the delicate purple hues of Rumsey’s lavender fields, discover the complexities of creating sustainable agricultural practices, tour around the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, and climb aboard the Sacramento River Train for an experience truly unique to this Northern California destination. Thanks to its convenient location between San Francisco and Sacramento, this portion of the state is frequently traveled through, though it is easy to overlook all of the hidden treasures residing just beyond the freeway exits.
