Hungry Hollow Farms at Café Presse Quarterly Dinner

Hungry Hollow Farm

For our June 2018 Quarterly Chef’s Dinnner at Café Presse, we will be preparing a traditional Poule au pot, featuring free-range, pasture raised farm chickens from Hungry Hollow Farms near Shelton WA.

Grant Jones

THIS JUST IN:  Artisan farmer/owner of Hungry Hollow Farms Grant Jones will be on hand to talk about how he works and to answer your questions.  Says Grant of how he farms:  “We’re putting animals back on the grass where they belong. When we raise animals outside on grass, they forage for greens and bugs. This natural diet produces meat and eggs with richer flavor and a superior nutritional profile.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet one of the local heroes who are working to put healthy food on our tables.

There are only a few remaining seats for this event.
Rerservations by telephone only 206.709.7674
