PDX Loves Japan Farm Brunch
The Side Yard Farm
Portland, OR
Share this event:

The Side Yard Farm & crew is headed back to Japan this fall for our 6th annual Seed to Plate Tour. We have an amazing lineup of Portland makers joining in this season's two week long trip and can't wait to rep Portland in Japan. To help spread the word about the Seed to Plate Tour, and to raise supporting funds, the Tour crew is taking over August farm brunch! This is going to be the biggest in Side Yard's history, one long communal table dining in the morning sunshine. Focused on whole plant cooking with multiple courses and family style seating. It's urban craft all the way, from seed to plate. Growing on urban acres from the veggies, eggs, milk for cheese and honey from our bees. This special farm brunch includes three courses plus wood fired biscuits with jam and sides. Enjoy Extracto coffee, a full bar of brunchy cocktails with Dogwood Distilling, Jackalope Wine Cellars, a Japanese sake tasting from Sake Beauty and mimosas. Chef Stacey Givens of The Side Yard and the Seed to Plate tour crew will teaming up in the kitchen.  All brunch profits will go towards the 2019 tour!

For the last five years after the farm season comes to an end, Stacey Givens of Side Yard Farm heads to Japan. During these annual trips she handpicks Portland chefs, farmers, winemakers and artisans to join her in visiting Japanese farmers, ranchers, dairies and get to know the folks behind organic Japan. Stacey and the other chefs prepare farm dinners for intimate groups using local Japanese ingredients that she sources from her farm visits and gets a chance to spotlight these farmers/makers. Stacey also speaks about making the most of small acreage, farming among urban residents, how her work as a chef and what it means to be a young womxn farmer. All the Portland makers involved have a chance to speak about what they do, how community is everything and why Oregon is such an amazing place to live. Every bit of this is directly relevant in Japan, where many farms are shoulder to shoulder with urban housing, and where the average age of a farmer is even older than in the United States at 65.9 to our 58.3. Theres a desperate need for new blood. Japanese folks from all walks of life visit The Side Yard Farm every season to discuss the importance of organic urban farming and how to develop more urban farms in Japan. Over the last five years, these trips have paid off and more and more young folks in Japan are getting into agriculture.
