CHICO, Calif. - The California Nut Festival committee made a generous donation to the Patrick Ranch Museum on August 29.
The festival takes place at the ranch each year in April, and it's grown to be one of northern california's premiere events.
It is a fundraiser for the Ranch and this year's proceeds totalled $45,000.
The Festival drew around 1,800 visitors, who enjoyed food and wine tasting featuring locally grown and locally created products as well as live music and a local artisans fair.
The goal is to support agricultural education and outreach, and to preserve and interpret the agricultural history of the Sacramento Valley.
This year part of the proceeds are dedicated to the ranch's new blacksmith shop and vintage iron tractor museum. Proceeds will also help pay for new computers and better internet at the ranch, which offers activities for families year-round.
Since it started, the California Nut Festival has raised a total of $140,000 dollars for the Patrick Ranch.
The 2019 festival is set for April 13th. For more information, CLICK HERE.
