I am excited to announce an opportunity to have a fundraising dinner at Gathering Together Farms in Philomath, this Saturday, May 5th. The purpose of the dinner is to raise $10,000 for my new processing facility, which we have already raised $5000 for. BMC is growing and we are now processing for Deck Family Farms in Junction City, OR (deckfamilyfarm.com). My intent is to build from this model relationship of dealing directly with local, ethical farmers and doing justice to the animals and the farmers work. I am grateful for this opportunity! I am bringing in the big guns on this one, Justin Neidermeyer, formerly of Spinasse in Seattle will be hand making the pasta course and GTF’s own Ana Patty will be making dessert. Come on out to the farm and be a part of this growing community.
The dinner is family style and starts at 6:30. There is a suggested donation of $75 per person (If you do not feel comfortable with the suggested donation, I welcome you to pay what is in your comfort zone). Beer and wine is available for purchase. Corkage fee $6.
1st course – Charcuterie – Country Pate’ Terrine, Pork & Duck Pate’ , Coppa, Bread & Marinated Vegetables
2nd course – Pasta – Nettle Ricotta Ravioli with Brown Sage Butter
3rd course – Pork – Confited Pork Belly, Cotechino, grilled pork steaks and sausages with Roasted Turnips, Turnip Greens, wild foraged greens and Romesco sauce
Dessert by Ana Patty – Parsnip cake, Molasses Ice Cream & Candied Burnheimer Bacon

Life is hectic and sometimes committing to one more thing can throw us over the top. While we believe our CSA memberships provide the most cost effective, and convenient way to insure fresh, high-quality meats at the table, we also recognize that a membership is not for everyone. If you’d still like to receive BMC product deliveries, but find a full CSA membership does not fit your needs, please consider our monthly meat boxes. Call us by the 15th of the month, and we’ll have a box packed and ready for you on the 1st. For more information, check out our Monthly Meat Box page, or contact Brad at email@example.com or 541.231.4085.
Become a member in the BMC’s CSA program and receive a monthly or twice monthly food box full of locally raised meats, butchered and prepared with conscience and skill. We’re now registering new members. More information about the products and CSA box options can be found on our CSA Membership page. For questions, or to sign up, contact Brad at 541.231.4085 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to all who listened to KLCC last week. Fortunately, I will be on again! Sunday, Noon to One. I will be talking with Laura McCandlish about the newly launched BMC Meat CSA as well as charcuterie and the pursuit of butchery. Click here to stream the show BMC on KLCC. Thank you again for your support!
Lets take fresh thyme, garlic, fennel seed, chili flakes and pork shoulder and make a delicious sausage of it. Stuff it into hog casings and sell it at the Gathering Together farmstand. Come on in and get some!
