As a big fan of farm trail maps, I was delighted to stumble across a new one recently that highlights the Pleasants Valley area, “one of the hidden gems of Solano County.” The farms featured in this little map are located off Highway 80 near Vacaville and offer visitors a wide array of freshly-harvested produce, olive oil, herbs, flowers, fresh chickens and eggs. With names like “Be Love Farm” and “Soul Food Farm,” how could a foodie resist?
