Locavore Meet Your Farmer September 30 at Worthy


Central Oregon Locavore nonprofit is delighted to announce the first of their fall/winter dinner. Meet Your Farmer Dinners are a series of experiential dining experiences that pair the farmers and chefs of rotating local restaurants. The chosen chef prepares the meal using as many of the featured farmer’s products as possible, supplemented by other local ingredients. Diners are treated to a presentation from the featured farmer about his or her farm and the products that were used during the lovingly prepared meal. This program builds farm-to-chef relationships.

On September 30 Worthy Brewing and Chef Jared will be preparing a five-course meal highlighting the products of Stephanie and Jack Samples of Beef Barn of Bend. Jack and Stephanie are true career cattle ranchers, and have a ranch just east of Bend. They will tell you their story while you sit back and enjoy a wonderful dinner. The meal will also feature produce from Worthy’s own Worthy Gardens. Talk about farm to place, the distance between garden and your plate is literally less than 50 feet!

Tickets are available HERE, on the Locavore Website under “Events” or bit.ly/3RgaHQh.

A portion of the proceeds benefit Central Oregon Locavore nonprofit and Locavore members receive a discount.
