In 1976, two UC Davis graduate students bought 20 acres of land in the highly arable Capay Valley. One of the students, Kathleen Barsotti, was working toward her master's degree in ecology and was determined to grow vegetables and fruits in an eco-friendly way: organically. The organic-food movement hadn't yet entered the public consciousness, and Kathleen worked overtime to convince restaurants, stores, and consumers of the taste-able merits of her process. Over time, given the possible health and environmental benefits of certified organic food, she succeeded. The farm sprouted to 300 acres to accommodate the increased demand. Today, a second generation runs the farm as well as a shop inside San Francisco's Ferry Building. Dubbed Farm Fresh To You, the store furnishes customers' bags or portable cornucopia horns with all sorts of soil-sprouted goods, including heirloom tomatoes, sweet peas, and fresh asparagus. The farm also teams up with fellow Yolo County and Pacific Northwest farms to deliver boxes of seasonal produce to area homes.

Yolo County Children's Alliance began as Yolo County's child-abuse prevention council in 2002. It's a big job for a mere ten administrators and social workers to tackle, but luckily they have the support of county residents. That support allows them to put on events such as the annual family fun run—a jaunt through UCD's stunning arboretum that helps the organization raise critical funds to connect families with support services. They also host fundraisers, child abuse awareness events, and family strengthening outreach programs, which build up families by having each member pick up and hug the next smallest person for 15 reps.
The Oasis Club & Spa is a women-only fitness center and spa—a haven for working out and relaxing in comfortable surroundings accented by sleek hardwood floors and plenty of natural light. Members can head to the gym for cardio and weight training, or for group classes such as Zumba, Body Pump, and cycling. Or, they can saunter to the salon for haircuts, updos, and highlights. The spa's facials, massages, and spray tanning indulge members with enough luxury to make a queen order her personal spa shopper to buy the spa and make it hers, all hers.
At Dk's Place, staff members fill a family-friendly arcade environment with engaging, age-appropriate activities for children as well as adults. In addition to air-hockey tables and skee-ball machines, video games challenge patrons to test their dancing, driving, or zombie-chasing skills, occasionally rewarding them with tickets. Although many of the prize counter's gifts and novelties can be purchased with a single ticket, guests can also opt to save up for premium awards, including lava lamps and plush animals stuffed with dodo feathers.
As guests perfect their hand-eye coordination in the arcade, chef Gregorio Oviedo tosses and bakes pizzas back in the kitchen. Layering crusts with salami, artichoke hearts, and 16 other toppings, he creates signature pies such as the barbecue chicken and the hawaiian, or allows diners to design their own.
