Feast on the Farm

Feast on the Farm is Stewardship Partners’ highlight event of the year, where we celebrate our land, our farms and the restoration work that we proudly do in partnership with people around the Puget Sound. The farm dinner celebrates our partners by demonstrating for guests how Puget Sound farmers are growing healthy food while also embracing environmental stewardship on their land.

We’re looking forward to the 9th annual Feast on the Farm at Full Circle Farm on July 19th, 2018.

We’re happy to announce our restaurant partner is Ethan Stowell Restaurants!
Tickets will go on sale in April.

The Farms

Learn more about the farms we partner with and how you can support them. The feast is at a different location each year.

Camp KoreyCamp Korey is rooted at the historic 818-acre Carnation Farm, once home to Carnation Farm Milk Company, founded in 1899. Equipped with century-old barns and farmland which once housed livestock, the farm is now renovated with a high quality medical facility, swimming pool, sports courts, climbing wall, zip-line and more, making it the perfect spot for campers to enjoy themselves.

Local RootsLocal Roots is a family-run vegetable farm in the Snoqualmie river valley, about 20 miles outside of Seattle. Wife and husband team Siri and Jason, along with a small crew of workers and apprentices, grow about ten acres of vegetables, which we sell at Seattle-area farmers markets, through our Community Supported Agriculture subscription program, and to many fine restaurants.

OxbowOxbow is a 25 acre mixed vegetable, tree fruit and berry  organic farm in the Snoqualmie Valley. They have shared their produce with the Seattle area for 14 years through markets, restaurants & their CSA.
