Get your dancing shoes out, and not the stiletto ones, ladies, for a barn dance and live music at a unique fundraiser: on Saturday September 24th, ~PIE RANCH~ is holding This Land Is Your Land, a special farm-to-table experience that will take you from the fields to the dinner table.
Gather at Pie Ranch at 3pm to check out the farm and snap up silent auction items, then around 4pm, start enjoying local wine and beer, and appetizers by Station 1 Restaurant in Woodside. Follow that up with a three- or four-course family-style dinner by chef Ryan Harris and Station 1, who are hand-crafting each gourmet dish with ingredients harvested or sourced from Pie Ranch or other Bay Area farms. Each course will be accompanied by wine donated from local vineyards like Thomas Fogarty and Bonny Doon (beer and non-alcoholic options will be available too). And, dessert is Pie Ranch’s very own pie via Companion Bakeshop and ice cream from Penny Ice Creamery.
Tickets ($200) will sell out! They’re available online, with proceeds going to support Pie Ranch’s nonprofit programming, which teaches youth about healthy food and communities, trains emerging farmers, and creates a more sustainable food system. Map and directions here. FYI, since the meal is family-style and will depend on what’s fresh and ripe for harvest, it may not be the right thing for vegans or food allergy-sufferers—more details here.
