5th Annual Faces of Farming Gala: A Family Affair

Friday, April 17, 2020, 12:30 AM - 4:00 AM

Prepare yourself for an evening of artful and delicious surprise, designed to honor our local food growers and makers. This event will include a silent auction, the infamous dessert dash, local cocktails, wine and beer, and a gourmet sit-down farm to table feast showcasing the bounty of local farms and ranches. The menu will be designed and prepared by Chef Miguel Mendoza of Tetherow Resort.
This year’s theme is Farming: A Family Affair. Did you know that 86% of Oregon farms are owned by families, many of them multi-generational. The long hours required during planting and harvesting, the vast array of skill sets required, and the constant threat of unforeseen circumstances requires a constant presence, and many hands working closely together. We are going to explore the intimate nature of the family farm, whether it be a family of origin, choice, or cohort, and how families must work together to ensure economic survival, bounty, and harmony.
We believe in the power of the land and the people who cultivate it for our health and well-being. At Central Oregon Locavore, we know that the future of farming and local food will depend upon the support of local farms and the coming generation of growers and eaters. By providing our young people, and ourselves, with an understanding of where we have been, where we are now and a vision of what is possible, we lay the groundwork for a strong local, sustainable food economy. Faces of Farming connects those passionate about our land and good healthy food, cultivates strong relationships and celebrates the potential in all of us.
