The Colusa County Farm Bureau deemed its annual Local Bounty Fundraiser a success as 500 attended the famous agricultural, social event.

Held in the Main Exhibit Building at the Colusa County Fairgrounds, Several area restaurants, wineries, and breweries held tastings of local commodities and showcased their products.

“People enjoy this event,” said Colusa County Farm Bureau Executive Director, Melodie Johnson, “It’s an event where guests can network and develop new business opportunities all while sharing the same goal.”

Area restaurants to participate in the event included Louis Cairos, Colusa Casino Resort, Don Habanero’s Mexican Restaurant, Market Street Grill, The Raw Bar, Juan’s Taco’s, Sweet Bean Bakery, and Rocco’s Bar & Grill.

Guests were given the opportunity also to sample various area wines, and brews.

Like any fundraiser, you have food, beverages, raffle items, and a great atmosphere; however, this event was slightly different.

“A few years ago we did away with an official announcer and presentation,” said Johnson, “people seem to enjoy this much better, and we’ve added the standing tables which is great for conversation.”

Members from the Arbuckle FFA and Arbuckle 4-H provided sausage samples as guests mingled.

“We help out at many of the Farm Bureau’s event,” said Arbuckle FFA Advisor, Cindy Rohde, “and this is one of our favorites.

Guests made their way around the room tasting samples and bidding on some great raffle prizes. One of those raffle prizes was a rifle won by Johnson’s grandson, RJ Bernard of Oregon; and the grand raffle item was the Pioneer 1000-5 Deluxe ATV won by Jon Cecil of the Willows Area.
