Gather and Feast Farm

Harvest Feast at Gather & Feast Farm

Gather and Feast Farm will host a Harvest Feast dinner on the farm on Saturday, Sept. 30. This is just about the most authentic farm-to-table experience you can get: you’ll enjoy food that’s been grown on the farm and prepared with care and delivered directly to your table, set under the farm’s light-bedecked trees. You’ll also savor items from other local artisans, ranchers, and growers, prepared by a renowned local chef and an expert culinary team. Your ticket, in short, gives you access to an extraordinary culinary experience, featuring beer and wine pairings from local brewmasters and vintners, plus a multi-course, family-style meal with cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres, salads, entrées, bread, dessert, coffee, seasonally inspired beverages, and live music.

September’s guest chef is Billy Schumaker of Taqueria Nueve in Portland, where he serves up wild boar tacos, octopus coctel, Caesar con ceviche, and freshly squeezed margaritas. (This is Schumaker’s “last hurrah” before he and his family move to Paraguay for more gustatory adventures.) Gather and Feast Farm’s culinary partner for this meal is Flying Fish Sustainable Seafood, opened by Craig Gildersleeve in 1979 in Sandpoint, Idaho, and moved to Portland in 2011 by son Lyf Gildersleeve and his wife Natalie. The evening’s beverage partner is Heathen Brewing and Estate. Created as a response to the corporate hold on the beer industry, Heathen brewing uses fresh, local ingredients to create small batches of craft beer, designed with a sophisticated palate in mind. Last year, Heathen acquired Heathen Estate, a 20-acre vineyard property in Brush Prairie. Finally, Gather and Feast’s community partner for the Harvest Feast is La Center High School Class of 2018, which will assist with all aspects of the dinner, from original harvest to serving on the night of the dinner.

The September dinner (for guests 21 and over only) will be held from 4 to 8 p.m., rain or shine. The farm’s first two dinners sold out. Tickets are $100 per person—or $90 for seniors and military. Proceeds will help support the students at La Center High School. Tickets are available now on Eventbrite. Gather and Feast Farm is located at 2706 N.E. 369th St. in La Center. Tickets are non-refundable but can be transferred other lucky recipients. Due to the meal’s buffet style of self-service, dietary restrictions and substitutions can’t be accommodated, but you can choose what goes on your own plate.

TomatoFest NW

Nothing says “summer’s bounty” like bushels of ripe, juicy tomatoes, just waiting to be made into salsa and sauce—or better yet, sliced and eaten fresh with a dash of salt and a drizzle of olive oil! Or diced up into a salad…or stuffed and baked…or sun dried…or roasted…or stewed…or made into a BLT…

The folks at Gather and Feast Farm know how you feel about tomatoes, and they feel the same way: pure love. That’s why they’re hosting the first annual TomatoFest Northwest on Saturday, Sept. 9, at their farm in La Center. TomatoFest celebrates all things tomato, and features contests for the best home-grown tomato and the best salsa—with opportunities for guests to taste both! On-site vendors will provide food and beer for sale. There will be live music, family-friendly games (including the endlessly amusing Rotten Tomato Launch), as well as culinary and seed-saving demonstrations by local chefs and farmers.

Entry to the festival is $5, and kids age 10 and under are free. If you want to enter your tomato or salsa in the contest, there’s a $10 entry fee. Tickets can be purchased at TomatoFestNW.EventBrite.com. Gather and Feast Farm is located at 2706 N.E. 369th St., deep in the farmland of La Center. To learn more about Gather and Feast Farm—which also hosts delicious farm-to-table dinners and private events—visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/gatherandfeastfarm/. The next event is the Harvest Feast on Sept. 30.

Farm-to-Table Dinner at Gather and Fest Farm

Gather and Feast Farm in La Center will host its second farm-to-table dinner on the farm on Saturday, Aug. 26. This is about the most authentic farm-to-table experience you can get: all of the food you’ll enjoy has been grown on the farm and prepared with care and delivered directly to your table, set under the farm’s light-bedecked trees. With your ticket purchase, you’ll gain access to an extraordinary culinary experience, featuring wine pairings from local vintners, plus a multi-course, family-style meal with cocktail hour, salad, entrée, and dessert.

The farm’s inaugural dinner was a magnificent success, and the August dinner is expected to sell out. Tickets are a rather pricey $115.44 per person—or $104 for seniors and military—but after you read the many glowing comments on Gather and Feast’s Facebook page, and when you consider that it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and that the proceeds will help support this absolute gem of a local farm, it certainly seems reasonable. There is also a “double date” discount for tickets bought as pair: $98.29 per person. Tickets are available now on Eventbrite.

The August dinner will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Gather and Feast Farm is located at 2706 N.E. 369th St. in La Center.
