Plan now for the 2023 Cruise
This past almond blossom season was spectacular. There were two orchards open for walking, picture taking and picnics with special thanks to Rodin Farms and Roberts Ferry Gourmet. There was cheese being made at Oakdale Cheese & Specialties, there was wine tasting and almond tasting at Stewart & Jasper Orchard shop in McHenry Village, there were tastings at Sciabica Family Olive Oil and, oh yes, there were miles and miles of beautiful blossoms. Not to mention, we added the audio tour that shared stories of how almonds are grown, why Zorro has a place in our history right here in Modesto, lessons on bees and pollination plus some juicy tidbits about George Lucas and the Gallo Family.
If you came by this year…Thank You! See you next year and we’ll be adding more fun and things to do. If you missed it, we want you to start planning for next year – mark your calendar from around February 10 to March 5, 2023 and keep in touch with us so you know when the blossoms will be blooming. Remember, Mother Nature is on her own schedule when it comes to blooms but you can pretty much count on those four to five weeks being special.
Special thanks to the Almond Board of California, the local ranchers who do all the hard work and the entire community for helping to make this an exciting trip for so many who came to visit!
