THEN: University Farm Circle was founded in 1914 to bring together the women associated with the University Farm—especially the female staff and faculty wives—to help the young boys at the school.

NOW: You do not need to be associated with the University to be a member. All are welcome!

If you are new to the community or to UFC, we invite you to join any of our Newcomers activities to get acquainted with our area and to meet other women.

For more information, email info@ufcdavis.org.

Upcoming events

    • May 21, 2021
    • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM (PDT)
    • Great Bear Vineyards

    Sadly, there are no bus trips to wineries in other counties this program year, but there is a simple, close, and delightful alternative: Great Bear Vineyards in Davis, tucked away on the north edge of Davis. The family-run vineyards and winery represent a lifelong dream of Marcus, Jenny, and the Meadows–Smith family. Some GBV wines have been awarded as high as a 91 (out of 100) in Wine Enthusiast. Join us to taste five wines, as well as to receive an individual Davis Food Co-op “charcuterie” box. 

    Great Bear will abide by all Yolo County COVID rules. We will be seated outdoors, with masks (when appropriate) and with social distancing as well. Your choice of table will be first-come, first-served, although if you wish to be seated with a small group, please indicate that on your reservation so the appropriate number of chairs may be set out at that table. Tables will be safely distant. Registration coupon in April 2021 newsletter.

    Deadline to register: Full, registration closed
