Sierra Oro Farm Trail opens for passport

Tickets are on sale for the seventh annual Sierra Oro Farm Trail Passport Weekend on Columbus Day Weekend, Oct. 6 and 7.

Perfect for foodies, wine and beer enthusiasts and travelers looking for a weekend getaway or a chance to explore an off-the-beaten trail, this annual agri-tourism adventure showcases 28 participating wineries and specialty farms throughout Butte County and provides trail goers with a once-a-year chance to savor the amazing farm-fresh bounty produced locally.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, travel the scenic agricultural trails of Butte County, sampling local fare including artisan olive oil, grass-fed meats, specialty nuts, award-winning wines and more.

Visitors don’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind event, the only weekend every stop along the trail is guaranteed to be open.

New stops in 2012 include Emerald “C” Vineyards in Chico and Calolea Olive Oil in Bangor.

Passports cost $25 per person and include a 2012 map and free commemorative wine glass. Based on availability, Passports will cost $30 per person the day of the event.

Passports are also available at all stops on the trail; at the Chico, Paradise and Oroville Chambers of Commerce; and Butte County Tri Counties Bank locations. All proceeds benefit the Sierra Oro Farm Trail Association to further develop agri-tourism in Butte County.

For more information visit Sierraoro.org, e-mail info@sierraoro.org or call 530-891-5556 or 800-852-8570.

Sierra Oro Farm Trail’s Passport Weekend is sponsored by the Butte County Farm Bureau, Chico Chamber of Commerce, Tri Counties Bank and Quadco Printing.
