Farm to Table: Terrebonne, Oregon

You’ve seen the spreads in Bon Appétit: beautiful farm food, fresh from the vine, perfectly plated, with the visual freshness of nature’s bounty awakening your senses. They make you wish you were there. And they usually are in Italy. But local farm to fork events are popping up everywhere, and we were lucky enough to enjoy one right in Terrebonne, Oregon, The Longtable Dinner.

Have a listen here while you look.

The Longtable Dinner is a monthly event that Sarahlee Lawrence of Rainshadow Organics, Wendy DiPaolo of Willow Camp Catering and Rebecca Sokol started this past July.

Their purpose is to share this bounty of foods raised on Rainshadow Organic’s Farm.

With very few exceptions, all the food is grown on the farm. Occasionally they “import” some items, like Olive Oil from California. They also try to take advantage of local dairies and other locally grown products.

They serve their dinners at their Long Table, made from local Juniper, in the very fields the food is grown.

They choose their menu at the last minute, seeing what is at its best in the gardens at that time.
