Meet the farmers from Be Love Farm, Chef Joey Jaraba from Two60 Kitchen + Bar and winemakers from Suisun Valley Wine Co-op! This Bounty of the County presentation features a lively cooking demonstration by Chef Joey who will show how he is using Be Love Farm’s organic produce in his current menu. Matthew Engelhart from Be Love Farm will discuss the regenerative farming practices on their diverse family farm and Fah Sathirapongsasuti will highlight pairings from three distinct micro-wineries which make up the co-op: Sunset Cellars, Blacksmith Cellars and King Andrews Vineyards. Fah will also present a special #SolanoStrong Wine 3-Pack, to raise funds for Solano County farmers, ranchers and wine growers affected by the wildfires. (Visit suisunvalleywinecoop.com to purchase now!) An audience Q&A takes place at the end.
Bounty of the County is a celebration of Solano County agriculture, restaurants and wine. Each week features live presentations by a different farmer-chef-winemaker trio. In light of the destruction from the wildfires, this year’s event will raise funds for Solano farmers who lost property, crops and animals. All donations through Sustainable Solano through the end of September will go to help those farmers. Continue to support local food through special Bounty of the County meals at participating restaurants, promotions at wineries and buying local food from Solano County’s farmers.
