Meet Your Farmer dinner at Nome Italiano featuring DD Ranch

March 14, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Meet Your Farmer Dinners are a series of experiential dining events 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.

This is our first Meet Your Farmer dinner since 2020 and we could not be more excited to return with a bang at one of Bend’s finest new restaurants. This is a fundraiser for Central Oregon Locavore Non Profit.
