Winters Hopes To Become ‘Agritourism’ Hub
WINTERS, Calif. (CBS13) — A Yolo County town is hoping to plant the seeds of a unique draw that could bring a new source of tourist revenue into their community.
The Winters Chamber of Commerce plans to host the city’s first “Agritour” on Saturday, which will focus on the region’s plentiful citrus crops, according to president Howard Hupe.
“Winters is known for all kinds of agriculture and crops,” Hupe said. “We’re trying to feature all that so people get to know Winters for the charming city and booming agriculture town that it is.”
Four Winds Growers owner John Seeger said he signed up for the tour to show off his family’s half-century of citrus experience.
“I’d like people on this tour to get a feeling of what’s available in world of dwarf citrus,” Seeger said, “just an overview of citrus care, ‘citrus-ology.’”
The Chamber of Commerce said they had room for 25 people on the tour, which costs $40 per person, and say they plan to schedule more tours in the future.
