the greenhorns oregon premier
At the Mary's River Grange Hall in Philomath, Oregon on Thursday, October 20. 6:00pm
Young Farmer and Food Artisan Mixer
Sponsored by OSU Small Farms Program
Supported by The Greenhorns
This is your big chance to get together and connect with Farmer and Food types from around our region. Us farmers can talk each others' ears off all night long, but this time we're inviting all the young chefs and cheesmongers, bakers and brewers so we can have a big time! Chat apples with the cider folks. Make connections to source and sell your produce. Talk land rent. Slow money. Swap stories from the barn to the kitchen. Eat a big 'ol bowl of fall harvest soup and plop a Burnheimer sausage in it. Mop up the juice with a hunk of bread from the Breadboard and fat pad of Lisa's butter. Music by the Brutal Bridges Back Porch Band, Alegria Musical from the GTF crew, and you later, if you bring your instrument. Does it get any better?!?
There will be several informal showcase tables organized by category. So far we have meats, cheese and dairy, vegetables, breads and grains, seeds. If you have samples, brochures, or just business cards, bring some to share! No selling things, donations only!! We're trying to evade the agro-industrial economy here for the evening.
Questions?!? Contact Hank at [email protected], or 541-760-9812

Thursday, October 20
6pm to 8pm: Mingle to music by the Brutal Bridges Back Porch Band, business over beer, food.
8pm to 9pm: Greenhorns movie screening
9pm 'till late: Music by Alegria Musical and dancing, Mexican style!
