Celebrate Local Ranching & Farming
Live Music, Local Brews, and a Talk
hosted by Slow Food South Bay and POST
January 26, 6:00pm – 9:00pm
Forager Tasting Room, San Jose
FREE to attend, $40 with Farm Fresh Dinner and Brew
Join POST, Slow Food South Bay and Forager Tasting Room for an evening of delicious local food, music and learning about the importance of ranching and farming to our local heritage and economy. This event will highlight POST’s Farmland Futures Program, which works to permanently protect thousands of acres of farm and ranch land in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
The event will feature two outstanding local women, Nancy Vail and Doniga Markegard. Nancy is the Co-Founder of Pie Ranch and will discuss their organic farming program and close partnership with POST. Doniga Markegard, noted rancher, wild-life tracker, and author of the new book Dawn Again, will share about her experiences. Along with her husband and four children, Doniga owns and operates Markegard Family Grass-Fed, raising grass-fed beef, lamb, pastured pork and chicken supplying the Bay Area with healthy, local foods. The family leases over 10,000 acres of land in the Bay Area and works to enhance the waterways on their properties by mimicking natural systems with regenerative agriculture practices.
Tickets to the dinner are $40 per person and include your meal as well as your first beer from our featured brewery, or a soda if you prefer. You will taste locally raised Markegard grass-fed beef, local produce from local farms, and a local brew. Attend the talk for FREE without dinner. Additional drinks will be available at the no-host bar.
