Greetings from the Capay Valley
We welcome you to experience California the way it used to be: family friendly, hard working and serene. The Capay Valley is a tranquil region of Northern California nestled between the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area and the metropolitan region of the Sacramento Valley. We invite you to come and immerse yourself in this unique section of Yolo County.

Home to several small communities, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, farms and ranches, and an abundance of wildlife, the beauty of the Capay Valley is found in its rolling hills, natural creeks and affable residents. Whether you call it home or just come to visit, the Capay Valley will remind you of the importance of preserving rural America.

In 2000 a group of residents-including farmers, townspeople, and the Tribal Council of Rumsey Indian Rancheria-came together to discuss issues facing the Capay Valley Region and to develop strategies to manage growth and preserve a sense of place. CVV incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 2001 to establish a community-wide vision for the future of the Capay Valley Region and to facilitate an ongoing collaborative process for planning.

Survey Announcement
Urban Animal Ag and Small Scale Farms

Are you a livestock and/or poultry small-scale farmer or backyard producer? We are seeking your help for an ANR and UC Davis survey regarding animal health concerns on small-scale farms, or for peri-urban and urban animal agriculture in the West (California, Oregon, Washington and Colorado). This survey aims to identify the needs of livestock and/or poultry owners related to animal health, animal husbandry and food safety.This study will serve as a benchmark for designing effective educational programs to train farmers, backyard producers and veterinarians working within this sector.
