It's taken many years working the farm to realize that the table is our best way to serve our community. With the onset of each scheduled dinner, Michael and I get pretty excited to see who is coming to share the feast with us at our table. Hosting you is like a dream - at our farm - at our home - with you and of course, with an amazing Chef who shares the same vision and heart values as we do.
Farming this parched land for the past 8 years has taught us so much - but a few things that stand out are just how so important community is. We have learned it IS important to know where your food comes and how eating together as family, friends and strangers really matters. With this and more - we feel so honored that we get to collaborate with Chef Derek Christiansen of Moonrise Standard.
In wanting to communicate the shift with our farm - (giving more time to our community dinners with Chef Derek, continuing building our caramel business and spending time formulating a new serum), I felt at a loss for words to explain our WHY until I reread Chef Derek's ABOUT here and below:
WHY WE DO IT
Our food chain is battered & bruised.
We're doing our best to help revive a food system where the health of the people,
communities & the land come before the health of pocketbooks & large corporations.
We believe that connecting with food, respecting the sources,
learning how to cook & understanding how to eat can drastically change our lives now
& the planet for years to come.
This Friday, May 25th is our Cool of the Evening Dinner at the farm. We have a few seats left and Michael and I want you to come. So, we are giving away 2 seats for this dinner. Purchase ONE ticket - let us know you want to bring a friend and the friend is your guest and ours too. When the 2 seats are taken - we will remove the offer. This is to show you just how much we believe in the value of gathering and feasting together.
