Join us for the second annual Farm to Table dinner at the historic Wood River Sustainability Center featuring local chef Jim Roberts . The four-course dinner will feature local lamb from Diane & John Peavey's Flat Top Ranch and produce from Idaho. The rancher will attend the dinner to discuss sheep ranching in Idaho as well as answer questions. The menu will be based on availability of local produce and announced closer to the event date. Wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. Seating is limited.
This is a unique opportunity to get to know Idaho through our great farmers and ranchers, and experience the incredible talents of Chef Jim Roberts.
