InFARMation: Pasture-raised Pork October 9th at Lagunitas Community Room PDX

October 9 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Friends of Family Farmers is excited to announce the return of four InFARMations in Portland this year, all celebrating pastured meat and dairy. There is a lot of confusion for eaters around the definitions and practices of pastured proteins: pastured vs. free range vs. organic vs. grass fed, etc. Come hear directly from farmers and ranchers from the Oregon Pasture Network as they tell their farm stories and give you all the information you’ll need to be an educated consumer of pastured meat and dairy products. Other panelists will include chefs, processors, butchers, doctors, and policy makers. This month’s InFARMation will focus on pastured pork on October 9th at the Lagunitas Community Room.

Panelists:

Kendra Kimbirauskas, farmer/owner at Shimanek Bridge Farm in Scio

Ben Davis, chef/butcher/restauranteur/processor at Grain & Gristle, Revel Meat Processing

Camas Davis, butcher/educator at Portland Meat Collective, author of Killing It

Elias Cairos, co-owner of Olympia Provisions

Doors open at 6pm, speakers start at 6:30. This is a free, all-ages event.  Beer sales will be donated to Friends of Family Farmers.  Please note – food options will be limited: Pasture-raised pork rolls, Spinach and Feta hand pies, quinoa and kale salad. In addition to Lagunitas beer, there will be sodas and water. Parking is on-street, so leave yourselves a bit of extra time for that. Bring your questions about pasture-raised pork and a healthy appetite for knowledge! 

The next InFARMation will also be hosted at Lagunitas Community Room: November 13th (Dairy). More information about panelists and events to come – stay tuned!

If you can volunteer to help the events run smoothly and/or get the word out to folks about InFARMations, please email Michele@friendsoffamilyfarmers.org.
