Join Friends for a weekend of connection with our grazelands. Grazing, as a regenerative way to work with the land, offers many benefits from fire suppression to soil health. The Transhumance Festival invites the community to learn about this ancient practice, how it is being applied locally, and how everyone can support a food system that benefits the earth.
Friday, April 29th – Farm to Table Dinner
Enjoy a local, seasonal meal inspired by the work of graziers and farmers, to support the work of the Transhumance Festival, hosted by Tara Firma Farms
Petaluma chef Brenda Anderson, of the Secret Kitchen, is creating a lovely family-style meal sourced from local farms and ranches to celebrate the connection of hooves and hands. Come for a night full of amazing Sonoma County food and wine. Leave with a greater understanding of how ruminants and people work together to better our community.
