Event Details

Join Get Dirty Farm Tours on Saturday, March 22, for a trek south into the heart of the Willamette Valley to learn about early spring farming. Covering both vegetable production and animal husbandry, we will visit Cattail Creek Lamb at Vitality Farms in Corvallis and Gathering Together Farm in Philomath.

Our first stop at Vitality Farms focuses on spring lamb production. Vitality Farms’ shepherd Mac Stewart personally raises every lamb sold as Cattail Creek Lamb from birth.  Learn firsthand from John Neumiester of Cattail Creek how his mission “to bring you the best lamb you have ever eaten” comes to fruition.  Discover how the combination of a mild climate and an entire pasture-fed diet produces superior lamb with the best flavor: rich, sweet, mild and never gamy.   This tour also includes a peak at Vitality’s organic egg operation where happy hens live in custom-designed, mobile houses that are moved to fresh, organic pasture every 3-4 days.  Every day of the year, hens feast on a diet of greens, bugs and worms.

After the lambs and hens, we’ll head north to Gathering Together Farm for lunch at their farmstand restaurant to enjoy food grown right outside the restaurant door. Founded in 1987 and well-known to chefs throughout Portland, farmers John Eveland and Sally Brewer have built one of the most well-established and respected organic farms in Oregon. The farm tour will explore over 50 acres, with particular emphasis on early spring propagation using greenhouses and hoophouses. Don’t miss this unique behind-the-scenes look at what farmers are up to in the busy days before the farm explodes with bounty!

Cost is $69 for ONE guest or $99 for TWO which includes tours, tales, lunch, and libations. Kids ages 12 and under are free with a paying adult.
