Message from the Founder



It's been a busy winter, but I'm not complaining. We did the first of 14 Winter Tour events on Oahu, Hawaii, and we wrap up the winter season in mid-February with our first ever event in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Not a bad way to spend our "down time."

We've also been busy at home putting together the 2018 Summer/Fall Tour schedule, to be announced in early March.

The 2018 schedule is shaping up to be an incredible line-up of farms across the land -- a rich harvest of nearly 90 events in a multitude of venues. We'll be setting the table at orchards and creameries, in big-city farmsteads from Los Angeles to Detroit, on docks and wharves alongside two oceans. We'll be working with many returning OITF chef and farmer friends, and a bunch of folks we're very excited to collaborate with for the first time.

There's so much going on out there, and we can't wait to see it, smell it, hear it, taste it.
