Simple, Serene

The Foodie Adventure at Nighthawk Farm is shaping up to be one incredible afternoon.  You’ll start by heading south and touring a fully operational organic farm in the fertile Bellevue Triangle- Nighthawk Farm. This wonderful stretch of land comes from the hard work of a two Santa Monica transplants.  They moved to Idaho to slow down and enjoy life, bringing their kids and starting a farm. Using traditional farming techniques like crop rotation and beneficial insects, this hand harvested bounty is fresh and delicious.  After wandering the grounds guided by Farmer/Owner Robin Englehardt, you can sit down to an incredible meal prepared fresh by two renowned farm-to-table cooking connoisseurs- the ladies of Hell’s Backbone Grill.

Chefs Blake Spalding and Jen Castle operate a restaurant in Boulder, Utah where the population is under 200.  Still, they reap national accolades as a top restaurant, and were even featured in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC. They believe in seasonal cuisine made locally with local products- think backyard local. And its good.  How good? Well, they just released their menu for the Nighthawk Farm Foodie Adventure, so read on and decide for yourself. Try not to drool on the keyboard…

These are some of Oregon’s best wineries and will complement your delicious, organically grown lunch.
