    Sacramento sits among 1.5 million acres of farms and ranches that grow more than 120 crops for markets here and abroad yet South Oak Park is considered a 'Food Desert' meaning local residents do not have access to fresh local food. Our family has been aiming to Transform the Hood for Good by providing our community with hyper local, fresh, organic, and non-GMO food. The Yisrael Family Urban Farm warmly invites you to share a meal at our 2nd annual urban farm to fork experience in South Oak Park that's affordable yet elegant. Your ticket will include: a garden tour, cultural vegetarian meal & live music.
