An edible conversation between a farm, a chef, and the community.
We are delighted to welcome Community Table back for 2022. This beloved event brings a renowned chef to our farm to design an ecological meal around our four seasonal rotations (market garden, milpa, berries, cover crops). By bringing these culinary artists back to the source, we give them an opportunity to connect with new ingredients, find fresh inspiration in our bioregion's historic foodways, and discover the rewards of relationship with the land.
CHEF JASON MCLEOD
“Too often, chefs try too hard and muddle the deliciousness of the core of the dish. I am excited to showcase that all you need is a really great product to make tasty food.”
A 25-year veteran of the culinary industry, Chef Jason McLeod first made his mark at Chicago’s RIA, earning the relatively unknown seafood restaurant two Michelin stars in just a year’s time. Even while managing multiple projects at once (hosting his own cooking podcast, appearing on the Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay”, and opening The Aria's new restaurant concepts in Las Vegas), Chef Jason’s award-winning approach to cooking remains the same: simple, honest, no-fuss preparation of the best locally grown seasonal ingredients.

DIETARY PREFERENCES Community Table dinners are fixed course, family-style meals. As such, we cannot accommodate every dietary restriction.
Please email us with any dietary needs. We will try to accommodate for vegetarian/vegan needs, gluten intolerance, and seafood/shellfish allergies but let us know if there are any specific dietary restrictions for any of your guests. We will do our best to accommodate anything beyond the 3 listed. If there are any life threatening allergies we recommend emailing before purchasing tickets.
SCHEDULE Community Table Dinners begin at 6pm, when we'll start with drinks and a farm tour. We appreciate timeliness as the dinner is coursed intentionally with just one seating.
Dinners typically end around 10pm.
REFUNDS We can offer refunds up to one week before the dinner. In the case that you need to cancel last minute, we would be happy to work with you to pass along your tickets to friends or family members.
