This March we were invited to give a presentation to the American Culinary Federation's Boise chapter! This unique foundation strives to bring chefs, restaurant owners, and wholesalers in direct contact with growers and shippers in order to bridge gaps across the industry.
President Sarah Mallard brought together members from Sysco, Metro Meals on Wheels, Food Services of America, Mobi 2 Market, and many others to pack the event. Owyhee Produce and Southwind Farms presented on behalf of growers and shippers.
What we love about these face-to-face, intimate setting presentations is that we get to talk about WHAT we do and WHY to people who can ask questions and engage with our growing process. Yes, we grow onions, asparagus, and mint, along with all of our other rotation crops. But we love to talk about HOW we do that using common sense farming practices. We love sharing our history from Owen's small beginnings to our success today. We love to share how you can take our produce and bring it directly into your kitchen in a variety of ways.
We can share a lot through our website and social media profiles, but there's no better way to understand what we do than to be able to ask us directly at an event like this, or come to our packing shed to see the action yourself.
