Taste of the Coast with POST
January 26, 2019 • 6:00 pm — 9:00 pm
Celebrate Local Ranching and Farming
with a Casual Farm to Table Dinner
Live Music, Local Brews and a Talk with
Doniga Markegard, Author, Rancher and Wildlife Tracker
& Nancy Vail, Co-Founder of Pie Ranch
Join POST and Forager Tasting Room for an evening of delicious local food, music and learnings 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 be at the Forager Tasting Room and will feature a short talk and book signing by Doniga Markegard, noted rancher and author of the new book Dawn Again. 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. Doniga will be proceeded by a short talk with Nancy Vail of Pie Ranch, an important organic farming program on the San Mateo Coast and close partners to POST.
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.
