Snow Body There

Our bread to go out to restaurants sits forlornly like a cowboy without a horse, like a tail without a wag, like crusty warm bread with no butter and salt. Everybody is closed today because of a snow storm in Corvallis!

Ah Yes, the Details

The Farm Stand will open for lunch starting on Thursday, March 6th.

Through the month of March we will offer lunch on Thursdays and Fridays at 11 a.m. and brunch on Saturdays starting at 9 a.m. We can’t wait to see you!

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!

Now Where Did I Put My List?

The farm is cranking back up to speed. We are thinking about and preparing for our first events of the year. It always takes extra lists and planning in the beginning – new people, rusty ordering, cold ovens, etc. In the middle of the season, we will pull off events like these without breaking a sweat, but for right now we are blissfully focused on what we have to get done. It is good to be back. Hope to see you soon!

Ricky has been an important part of the GTF kitchen for quite a while. Here he is sporting the 2009 kitchen t-shirt. Every year we all sport a GTF shirt with the current year. If you see one out on the street, make sure to give a shout out: “Love those donuts!” or something.

Ricky has also been working very hard to make his band The Crescendo Show a success. Here is a small sample:
