Phx - LocavoreAZ tour in Mesa!

My neighbor, and fellow dairyfarmer, Casey Stechnij will be hosting the first travelling AZ Locavore dinner this Saturday night. I didn't see it posted anywhere else, and thought everyone might want to know. I have a feeling most people haven't had dinner in a feed alley surrounded by a few hundred dairy cows before.

Chef James Porter of Tapino will be preparing the dinner using all fresh Arizona ingredients.

  1. I like the idea that theyve moved the concept out of the restaurant and on to the farm. We've enjoyed the locavore dinners we attended last year and I'm sure this will be a great event. Unfortunately the price has gotten too steep for us, particularly to do as a recurring event as we enjoyed doing last year at the dinners at Tapino. Hopefully it still draws a healthy crowd though.

    1. Cool, thanks for sharing. I was at Schnepf Farms recently, and they have a similar "Farm Dinner" scheduled for April 25th for $80. I think it includes peach picking.
