Local Farm and Ranch Tour Event with the Well Traveled Fork

If you want to learn how our local farmers and ranchers are growing healthy food these days, join The Well Traveled Fork for a tour of Central Oregon farms and ranches that produce food the old fashioned way—the way we used to before big agribusiness became the source of most of our food.

Under the backdrop of the Cascade Mountain range, you may visit:

 

    • An organic farm where vegetables, herbs, berries and flowers sprout from the dry high desert earth. Learn about their special production methods that produce some of the best-tasting food you’ll ever taste!
    • One of the many hearty ranchers that raise beef, sheep, pigs or goats in the Central Oregon area. These animals are treated humanely and have good lives as long as they are on this planet. You will also meet the guard animals that tend to the charges and protect them from predators.
    • Chickens are supposed to be free range, but have you seen them? Meet the ladies of the high desert that take their independence rather seriously! Superior egg layers and beautiful to boot!
    • An alpaca operation that raises these exotic animals. At the boutique store, you will see the luxurious garments crafted from one of the most rare and prized fibers.

You may have a chance to meet these hard working farmers and ranchers and talk to them about their operations. You’ll learn about their commitment to using only sustainable production methods as they manage their very diverse businesses.

Our route changes seasonally but is sure to excite and educate visitors to the bounty that Central Oregon has to offer.

Food is not frivolous. Find out where your food comes from! Follow the Fork!
