Even the weather

on Sunday Morning.
We do have some "solid ground" options available
to us, and we are working toward having a few more
by Sunday Morning.
For our Vendors, we will update
you via email broadcast as information becomes available.

we will have signs at our "grassy-park"
area pointing to where to find us!
If we have any definite information ahead of time,
we will post it on
Facebook, send an alert on
Twitter, and put it on our
website. Please visit these sites

California Crop News:
Americans lead the world in wine
America is now the world's
leading wine-consuming nation, according to the
Wine Institute. U.S. residents surpassed France in 2010, consuming
330 million cases of wine. California wine accounted
for 61 percent of that total. The French still consume
more wine per capita; because of a larger population,
U.S. consumption was higher even though Americans didn't
consume as much individually. At the same time, wine
exports increased almost 26 percent, and 90 percent
of the exports were from California.
Farmers encouraged to tell their story
California's food and
agriculture secretary encouraged a gathering of Farm
Bureau leaders to reach out to consumers and government.
Karen Ross suggested that farmers take advantage of
a renewed consumer interest in where and how their food
is produced. She encouraged growers to inform government
of regulations that impede food production without improving
food quality. Ross also said her agency will continue
to protect the state from invasive pests and maintain
Horse vaccinations for West Nile virus urged
West Nile virus has been
found again in California, and as a result the California
State Veterinarian is urging horse owners to have their
vaccinated. Last year, 19 horses were diagnosed with the disease.
They were not vaccinated or not completely vaccinated.
Getting the necessary shots will give the animals optimal
protection against the disease. The horses get the disease
from mosquito bites. Not all will die, but in the past
seven years 40 percent of the infected animals died.
Pixie tangerine season begins
The Ojai Pixie Growers
Association plans a new marketing technique this spring.
Members of the 41 families who grow these
visit grocery stores that carry the fruit to meet their
customers and to encourage consumers who've not tried
pixies to do so. Growers say the crop this year is good-sized,
and they may harvest more than 2 million pounds. Ojai
Valley pixies will be available from now through May.
The group started growing pixies in 1980.
California's farming future focused on water
Agriculture and water
management experts convened in the heart of California’s
Central Valley to participate in a series of panel discussions
aimed at providing greater insight into the water issues,
policies, legislation, programs, initiatives and trends
that ultimately impact California’s agricultural industry.
“Small changes in agricultural
water use efficiency can produce significant amounts
Presented by Rain Bird,
the leading manufacturer and provider of irrigation
products and services in partnership with the Center
for Irrigation Technology (CIT) at California State
University, Fresno, The Intelligent Use of Water Summit:
California Agriculture at a Crossroads provided a forum
to discuss their experiences and propose recommendations
that address the critical relationship between California’s
agriculture industry and the state’s limited water supply.
