Savor the Central Coast 2011


We all had a great time at the Savor Event this
past weekend.  Rutiz Farms had a booth in the
'Farmer's Tent' where we were allowed to do
a display that represented what we grow.

Maureen put together a fantastic display that was
very colorful and eye catching.  Everyone seemed
to be having a great time and it was great talking
to people  about what we do at the farm.
All the farmers had posters with their
pictures on it hanging behind them
which was a very nice touch.  
The event was a class act from start
to finish. and we are so glad we 
participated.
