Welcome Brave Romantic Couples!

Valentine’s Day starts early at GTF, where we will treat guests to a six course menu aimed at celebrating love.

Unfortunately tomorrow may be more problematic due to rising waters, so if you have a reservation, stay posted. We will be calling to check in!

I will post pics from the dinner once my sweet wife shows up with the camera!

It Must Be Montessori Auction Time!

Every year at this time my alarm clock goes off and I find excuses to be at the farm kitchen, usually deep cleaning this or that, halfway planning, halfway thinking of menus, etc. And then, just in time, the good folks at Philomath Montessori throw their yearly Love Of Learning Annual Fundraiser, which gives me a chance to bust a move and make some pate, ceci salad, and mushroom terrine to name a few of the tasty treats that will make it to the buffet. It is a great chance to support the local school and pick up some sweet auction items at the same time. It is happening Saturday, February 8th and begins around 5 p.m. See you there!

P.S. The picture has nothing to do with this post, but I can’t wait to see the rail full of tickets in 2014!
