CHEF/FARMER/OWNER-STACEY GIVENS of SIDE YARD FARM
Stacey Givens is the farmer/chef/owner of The Side Yard Farm & Kitchen. She grew up in a big Greek family and was instilled with DIY values from a very young age. Farming in her backyard, foraging olives with her mom from the nearby hills and learning to brine them with her Yiayia (grandmother). Givens has been in the food industry since the age of 15. Working her way through kitchens up the west coast from LA to SF to PDX. After landing in Portland in 2006, she cooked in various kitchens including Lincoln, Southpark, Rocket and Noble Rot. Currently, she is based in the Ne Cully Neighborhood, where her team grows diverse vegetables on a 1 acre plot of land. She sells her harvests to nearby restaurants in what she calls an invaluable chef-to-chef produce service. Since then, Givens has established the first 'urban' seed to plate catering company and supper club in the Portland area where she uses Side Yard grown goods. She also sources from other urban farms in her hood for goat milk, eggs, honey and fruit. Its urban craft all the way, from the seed to the plate. Making her own cheese, charcuterie, vinegars, pollen, spices and pickles. Her inspiration to get her hands in the dirt sprouted when she was cooking at Rocket (now Noble Rot), which had the first rooftop garden of its kind in Portland. Crafting 'urban farm to table' meals led Givens into what she calls her 'whole plant cooking' food philosophy.
