Learn more about the farms we partner with and how you can support them. The feast is at a different location each year.
Carnation Farms – Carnation Farms is a historic 818-acre 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.
Griffin Creek Farm – Farming organically since 1996, Griffin Creek is the founding farm of Full Circle farm box service. From the beginning, Griffin Creek Farm has embraced organic and sustainable agriculture as a way of life, an art, and a whole-hearted dedication to caring for the land, employees, natural habitats and food system.
Local Roots – Local 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.
Oxbow – Oxbow 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.
Each year we have a different local chef prepare the meal using Salmon-Safe ingredients, which in turn supports local sustainable farms.
2022 – Our return to Feast on the Farm was a huge success! We had a magical night at Griffin Creek Farm, a Stewardship Partner dedicated to sustainable farming practices. We feasted on the bounty of food prepared by local chef Kevin Murray of Ray’s Boathouse, chef Christina Siegl of 84 Yesler, and oysters from Baywater Shellfish Company prepared by Seabird, of Hitchcock Restaurant Group.
We raised a glass of Salmon-Safe Willamette Valley Vineyards wine and broke bread with like-minded community members engaged in caring for our region. The night ended with the sounds of Seattle based musician, Kate Dinsmore.
2021 – Once again, we brought Feast on the Farm home with us through meal kits. Together with our chefs’ help, we all enjoyed delicious local food delivered safely to our doorsteps. Nyssa Tanner, Owner, Nyssa’s Kitchen, Mutsuko Soma, Owner and Chef, Kamonegi, and Grant Rico, Chef de Cuisine, Hitchcock, prepared this curated meal using wild sockeye salmon from Bristol Bay donated by Pike Place Fish Market, sustainably grown farm-fresh produce from Full Circle Farm on Griffin Creek and bread from Macrina Bakery. We also received other local artesian goodies to include such as coffee from Caffe Vita and cookies from Hello Robin. Novelty Hill wine and a signature Feast cocktail featuring Tito’s Vodka were enjoyed alongside music by Seattle’s own The High Seagrass and stories from the field.
2020 – The pivot of our yearly event to a virtual experience wouldn’t have been possible without our partners and supporters. Together with our chefs’ help, we all enjoyed delicious local food delivered safely to our doorsteps. The menu consisted of Wild King Salmon, Prepared by Chef Ethan Stowell of Ethan Stowell Restaurants, Wild Foraged Lobster Mushroom Bisque and Smoked Delicatas Squash, Prepared by Chef Joe Ianelli of Harvest Beat, and Griffin Creek Farm’s Fall Harvest Salad, Prepared by Chef Zoi Antonitsas.
2019 – For our tenth anniversary of the Feast, we decided to celebrate with a cast of talented chefs. Joining us this year was Mutsuko Soma of Kamonegi. Before opening Kamonegi, Chef Soma cut her teeth at restaurants like the Harvest Vine, Chez Shea, and Saito’s. She then returned to Japan to learn the art of making traditional soba. While studying soba making, Chef Soma discovered that Washington was among the largest buckwheat producing states in the United States. This fact reaffirmed her decision to introduce soba to the Pacific Northwest, an area that has greatly influenced her throughout her career. Returning to cook with Chef Soma are past chefs Branden Karow, the Executive Chef of Ethan Stowell Restaurants, Jason Stoneburner, the Executive Chef at Bastille Café & Bar and chef/owner of Stoneburner, and Brendan McGill, the Executive Chef and owner of Hitchcock.

He went on to cook at both Anchovies & Olives as well as How To Cook A Wolf before becoming chef at Staple & Fancy.
2017 – William Belickis is founder of Mistral Kitchen. Belickis’ first glimpse of the Great Northwest left him awestruck; he found its clean, cool beauty inspiring and soon returned to explore San Francisco, British Columbia, and everywhere in between. After making the move to Seattle, he was a chef Fuller’s and Salish Lodge. In 2000, he opened his own restraunt, Mistral in Belltown. Mistral closed its doors in 2008 so Chef Belickis could work on a new, more accessible and experimental restaurant: Mistral Kitchen.
2016 – Joshua Henderson is an award winning Executive Chef and founder of the acclaimed Huxley Wallace Collective. Known as a visionary and food entrepreneur, Josh has spent his career cooking in kitchens and unique locations across the country. He recently established a group of highly successful restaurants in the Pacific Northwest, including Quality Athletics, Bar Noroeste Taqueria, Great State Burger, Saint Helens, and opening soon, Poulet Galore, Cantine Bottleshop and Bar, and Vestal.
2015 – Jason Stoneburner is the Executive Chef at Bastille Café & Bar and chef/owner of Stoneburner, both located in Seattle’s historic Ballard neighborhood. Jason is also the chef/owner of the newly opened Seaplane Kitchen & Bar in Kenmore, just north of Seattle. He is dedicated to procuring products from small farms and thoughtfully sourcing ingredients for all three of his restaurants. Jason is a proud supporter of the Special Olympics, Seattle Children’s Hospital, FareStart, and charities that encourage sustainable farming and agriculture. In his free time, Jason can be found somewhere along the West Coast surfing or snowboarding.

2011 – Chef Matthew Dillon’s fresh and straightforward approach blends ingredients from the local land.
