Our beloved summer event has been postponed

6th Annual Good Farm Fund Benefit
Yokayo Ranch, Ukiah

Our July 2020 event has been postponed in the interest of public health.

Don’t worry, the best feast of the year will happen! We are hoping to reschedule for sometime in September. In the coming months, we’ll be working out all the new details and will update you as soon as possible.

Sign up for our e-newsletter to get the most current event updates.

This event has become the most beloved farm-to-table experience of the summer! A Midsummer Night’s Feast is a fabulous showcase of our region’s best food & culinary talent, featuring the people who feed our community, from shovel to fork.

Local food doesn’t get better than this. In one summer evening we bring together about 20 of the area’s “local-food-forward” chefs and pair them up with our best local farms and ranches to collaborate on one of a kind seasonal plates.

Libations will include local beer, wines, designer mocktails, and the crowd-favorite craft cocktails made with locally distilled spirits from American Craft Whiskey Distillery.

Hosted outdoors at the beautiful & historic Yokayo Ranch, the evening also includes live music, and a silent auction.

Early Bird Tickets: $100 ($125 after 6/1/20)–includes all food & beverages. We expect to sell out, but if tickets are available at the door they will be $150. Courtesy note: no dogs or other pets, please.

Onsite lodging is available at Yokayo Ranch for the night of the event. However camping spots are extremely limited so place your reservation via Brown Paper Tickets today before they are gone.

Eat Well. Do Good.

Event proceeds directly support our Farm Grant Program that provide crucial funding for infrastructure development projects on local farms, and helps support the EBT/Food Stamp Match program to ensure access to healthy food for all members of our community.

Our event sponsors’ generous support is humbling. Their help and encouragement ensures that the funds raised through ticket sales, silent auctions, etc. goes to funding our important work. Thank you.
