Woodland, CA May 30, 2015- Wine and Dine at the California Agriculture Museum Tuesday, June 9th, in celebration of their name change and new exhibits. Stroll through the newly rearranged tractor collection, while enjoying a variety of local beers, wine, food and even moonshine tastings, 5:30-8:30 at 1962 Hays Lane, Woodland.
The California Agriculture Museum is hosting a public reception to commemorate their evolution into a California landmark museum, formerly the Heidrick Ag History Center. The facility is still home to the Heidrick tractor collection, but has added exhibits such as a tribute to moonshine, which displays a historic column still as well as a pot still that would have been found hidden in a corn field during prohibition. Other new additions include a kid’s corner with ride on tractors, a large corn bath with tractor toys, tomato facts and climb-on simulators.
“We are proud of the hard work that has been put into this evolving museum by board members, staff, and volunteers,” said Executive Director Lorili Ostman, “And of course we could not continue to grow with the generosity of our museum donors.”
“This is a great opportunity to become a museum member in order to support one of California’s richest historical landmarks in the making, and help us cultivate new exhibits,” Ostman added.
Enjoy local wines from Berryessa Gap, Turkovich, Lynch Wines, local beers from Black Dragon, Ruhstaller, as well as, food from Ludy’s, Fat’s, Yolo Fliers Club, Common Grounds, Sugar Gallery, Cracchiolo’s Market, Deli, & Catering, BlackPine Catering and Events and more.
