Farm and Ranch Tour
Foodies gather at the Savory Spice Shop in the Old Mill Shops and take a trip to 3-4 Bend area farms, ranches and wineries to see how food was made back in the day, before factory farming and big agribusiness took over. Here you'll get a glimpse into local farming in Central Oregon and a taste of it as well, as the tour includes small bites and samples. Attendees will also get a better understanding of the challenges that face Central Oregon farmers and the extreme temperatures the region endures.
Culinary Secrets Tour
