There is a growing movement to make it easier to get locally-grown food from Central Oregon farms to your table. For this week’s Supper Club, Central Oregon Daily’s Curtis Vogel sat down with a local farmer, an executive chef, and a woman whose organization works to make locally-grown food more accessible.
Thanks to Elizabeth Weigand, owner at Agricultural Connections, Megan, co-owner at Boundless Farmstead, and Brian Kerr, executive chef at Deschutes Brewery and Public House for joining us.
A special thanks to our Supper Club sponsors, Selco Community Credit Union, for giving us the time and resources to talk about the issues that impact our region every Tuesday night on Central Oregon Daily.
Don’t miss Locavore’s Fall Harvest Feast Farm to Table Dinner at DD Ranch with six courses, breathtaking views of Smith Rock and live musical from Second Son. Crafted Life Spirits will be mixing specially paired craft cocktails featuring local distilleries as well. Wagon rides begin at 5 p.m.
High Desert Food & Farm Alliance is hosting their 2nd Annual Farmer-Chef Mixer Monday, February 27th with the idea of bringing local food growers and area chefs/restaurants together. Jess Weiland, HDFFA Food & Farm director, says the mixer will feature “speed dating” in which farmers and restaurants will share information on varieties and availability of seasonal food.
