Ag History Center to unveil California history June 14 | Arts & Culture
WOODLAND - On Tuesday, June 14, the Ag History Center will unveil antique tractors that will become permanent contributions to the antique collection. Enthusiasts from all walks of life are invited to become a member and support a collection that is the hallmark of California culture.
June 14th will be an evening to enjoy light appetizers that feature the center’s new culinary team, and taste the produce of Berryessa Gap Winery, Copper Hill Olive Oil, Lucero Oil, Putah Creek Winery, Rominger West Winery, Route 3 by Yolo Vineyards, Simas Family Vineyard, and Turkovich Family Wines.
Nineteenth-century observers watched in awe as cumbersome steam tractors and giant combines worked their way across vast fields. In the 20th century, California farmers led the nation in the adoption of gasoline tractors, mechanical pickers, harvesters and dozens of well-known machines.
You're invited to experience the story of agricultural mechanization in California as seen through the collection. Guest storytellers will take groups through the collection and share a very real California story. Hear about the development of antique machinery, each a visual experience of mechanical inno-vation.
The event will take place from 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. in the Place Center Courtyard at Heidrick Ag History Center located at 1962 Hays Lane in Woodland. To RSVP, email email@example.com or call (530) 666-9700.
