The fields of SingleThread Farms are host to an incredible diversity of plant and animal life. Each of our growing blocks planted out in vegetables are intentionally bordered by perennials, the former filling CSA boxes and our kitchens while the latter provides habitat for fauna and blooms for our floral team. Organic compost and seasonal cover crops contribute to the life below ground as killdeer, great blue heron and owls hunt and nest above. As farmers we are also stewards of this land, and here in the Dry Creek Valley we have a unique opportunity to contribute to the region's diversity and ecology.
The diverse ecology of our farm plays host to more than just flora and fauna of the valley - chefs and farmers regularly walk the rows on our farm together, discussing what is in season and what is in transition, picking and tasting as they go. These walks inspire both parties, fueling the creation of new dishes and informing future plantings. This incredibly unique and intimate experience is something that we look forward to each week, and until now has been an exclusive benefit of working in the fields and kitchens at SingleThread.
Our Field Walk Series was designed to welcome guests to the farm and to follow in the footsteps of our chefs and farmers, tasting what is in season and discussing the details of growing, harvesting and utilizing the vegetables, fruits and flowers available at that time. These experiences last 1.5 hours and are led by our Director of Farm Programming, Adam Smith.
Guests will be welcomed with refreshments from the kitchen at SingleThread and will then be led on a tasting tour of the farm.
