Meet Your Farmer: Central Oregon Ostrich at Barrio

Central Oregon Ostrich

The Meet Your Farmer Dinner Series is a wonderful way to really meet your local farmers!

 

Meet Your Farmer dinners consist of a locally sourced, gourmet meal hosted by and prepared by rotating local restaurants. During dinner you will be treated to a presentation by the evening’s featured farmer.

 

About Central Oregon Ostrich: Ostrich is a red meat, high in iron and naturally low in saturated fat. Compared to ground sirloin, ground ostrich contains fifty percent less fat per serving. Prime ostrich fillet is similar to beef tenderloin in texture but contains sixty percent less fat and twenty seven percent fewer calories per serving. Our ostrich yearlings are finished on brewers grains from local Central Oregon breweries. If you are looking for a healthy alternative to beef, one that looks and tastes like beef but contains half the fat and one third fewer calories per serving, ostrich is an excellent choice.

 

About Barrio: Barrio is a Latin inspired restaurant serving lunch, dinner and happy hour in downtown Bend, Oregon. Here, you’ll find bold, flavorful food, craft cocktails, daily specials, and friendly, approachable, service.

Meet Your Farmer: Barley Beef at Deschutes Brewery

Deschutes Brewery

The Meet Your Farmer Dinner Series is a wonderful way to really meet your local farmers!

 

Meet Your Farmer dinners consist of a locally sourced, gourmet meal hosted by and prepared by rotating local restaurants. During dinner you will be treated to a presentation by the evening’s featured farmer.

 

About Barley Beef: Barley Beef is offered by a group of small family-run farms in Central Oregon. Our two main farm familes are the Borlen Cattle Company and the Rastovich Family Farm. Together we raise a modest herd of cattle that we like to call Barley Beef. We’ve been raising cattle for almost 100 years. No hormones, no crowded processing plants, no corporate meat farms — just well-fed and nurtured cattle. 2019 marks their 100 year anniversary!

 

About Deschutes Brewery: While the beer speaks for itself through a total of 19 taps, our chefs also put the same quality and hand-crafted excellence into the cuisine. Our beer-centric menu features fresh ingredients, many sourced from local farmers, foragers and ranchers with whom the team has built strong relationships over the years. Most menu items are hand-crafted from scratch whenever possible, and several items are made with spent grain from the brewing process.
