Oregon Farm to Table: Elk Farming at Rosse Posse Acres

Managing elk is a far cry from keeping more domesticated animals like pigs or sheep. They can weigh in excess of 950 pounds, and they’ll attack anything they perceive as a threat. Visit Rosse Posse Acres to see how its done.

Oregon Wheat: A Bountiful Harvest

Oregon’s bounty is on display year-round, from garlic to Christmas trees and everything in between. The state’s farmers produce more than 40 million bushels of wheat every year.

Back to the Land

It could be in a barn, or at a long table under the stars in a vineyard that you taste a perfectly braised piece of elk or a handcrafted wedge of locally made cheese. No matter where it takes place or what you get to eat, attending one of Field & Vine’s “Dinners in the Field” is guaranteed to feature farm-fresh, seasonal ingredients paired with a  fine wine.

Farm to Table: Jossy Farms Peaches

On Jossy Farms, a large barn is tucked between rows of trees and small wagons are lined up, awaiting the arrival of customers eager to fill them with fresh peaches. Owner Bob Jossy surveys the endless rows of trees, their low-hanging branches laden with ripe, yellow-orange fruit with just a hint of rosiness. It’s the height of summer and the ideal time for peach harvest.
