It’s an unusually dry time of year and for local growers that’s a cause for concern. But a few local farmers aren’t letting a statewide drought rain on their parade — they’re award winners, and they’re celebrating.
Three local farmers were recently acknowledged for their oil products coming out of Solano County during the fourth annual Good Food Awards Ceremony.
“It’s pretty incredible to have three come from Solano County,” said Dixon farmer Jon Fadhl.
This year’s winners were selected from 1,450 entries from all 50 states in a blind tasting held in September in San Francisco.
Good Foods, according to Good Food Awards, focuses on food that is made with real ingredients, local wherever possible, and respect amongst the people whose work goes into creating it. “Good Food is made with good animal husbandry and without the use of artificial ingredients, hormones, synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fertilizer or genetically modified ingredients.”Solano County olive oil products earn honors,
