Rescheduled Meet Your Farmer at Joolz featuring Crooked River Bison

March 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

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 Joolz: Joolz is the result of an eclectic mixture of Chef Ramsey’s history. Born and raised in Beirut, Lebanon; to his mother Carolyn; an American cowgirl from a grants pass hop farm & his Lebanese father Najib who met at Cal Poly where Najib was studying agricultural methods to bring to the middle east. The family was raised in Lebanon with firm roots in both cultures. 

About Crooked River Bison Ranch: The Crooked River Bison Ranch is located in the foothills of the Ochoco National Forest, just 9 miles south of Prineville, Oregon. We pride ourselves on being a small, local producer of grass fed bison. Our ranch consists of several hundred acres of open pasture and rangeland, with an abundance of native grasses and vegetation for our bison to feed on.  We raise our bison in the most humane and ethical possible manner. Our bison receive a diet of native grass and are never given steroids or hormones to artificially stimulate growth. When it comes time to harvest, we only field harvest in small numbers to maintain a low stress environment.The extra care we put into our ranching practices ensures that the meat on your dinner plate is of the highest quality. We adhere to our strictly-defined ranching standards and practice the most ethical ranching methods so you and your family can enjoy the tastiest, most flavorful bison meat available.
