The Agricultural History Project Center and Museum features Yesterday's Farm, an event held during the annual Santa Cruz County Fair, Tuesday September 10 to Sunday September 15, 10am-10pm, and includes our September Second Saturday on the Farm! Yesterday's Farm theme this year is Cowboy Boots & Country Roots - Just like the Fair! You'll be able to drive the draft horses at 4 PM every day with Fred Silva's Clydesdales. Every night will have a tractor parade. Claudia's Kitchen will be open, where you can try making bread dough or rolling out a pie crust. We'll have demonstrations of lumber making with a hand saw mill and spinners and weavers will be on-site demonstrating turning a fleece into yarn and weaving cloth. Kids will be able to pump water, milk 'cows,' ride tractors, roll hoops, and have fun petting the animals. Tractors, trucks, and wagons will be on display as well as a new tractor barn theater showing videos of antique tractors and how they were used. There will be chickens, sheep, and possibly a cow and calves. We'll have daily demonstrations of equipment restoration and antique equipment use. Kids are free on Wednesday. Entrance is with a Fair ticket through the main Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds gate.

    Best of Santa Cruz County

    The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX

     

    Santa Clara Wine Trail

    My memories of growing up in England include my mother pouring port after Sunday dinner—and sometimes a glass of sherry before dinner. My family didn’t drink much wine back then, but we certainly made up for it with the port and sherry.
