I am officially launching our new website! Check out TUNITAS CREEK KITCHEN at Potrero Nuevo Farm where I have the incredible good fortune to work with the dynamic husband & wife Co-Farm managers, Suzie and Jay Trexler, on this gorgeous contemporary farm.
Tunitas Creek Kitchen takes an artisan approach to celebrating the farm season with small-batch jams & pickles, farm-to-table dinners, and workshops that offer tips & techniques for farming and cooking.
The team originated with farmers Suzie & Jay, born out of their hands-on work managing the fields at Potrero Nuevo Farm. This 300 acre farm and wilderness property is committed to sustainable agriculture, fair accessibility to food and ecological land management. The majority of the harvest is donated to the low-income community on the Coastside.
With the blessings of Farm Owners Christine Pielenz and Bill Laven, we teamed up for our first farm-to-table celebration last year, and the TCK team was officially formed to bring you exceptional dining experiences.
We have 2 farm-to-table dinners upcoming: a PIG ROAST and a HARVEST CELEBRATION plus workshops on how to make preserves and probiotic foods like kimchi & kraut. Each workshop comes with a farm tour, tips for farming & harvesting, and a lunch prepared by moi with produce and protein grown/raised on site. For our farm to table dinners we partner with local brewers and wineries to provide a truly locally grown experience (mmmmhmmmm, it’s party time – get those cowboy boots polished up!).
Maybe you’ve always wanted to have a private event on a farm? Let us host your next celebration or corporate event. We can provide team building experiences too! Jay & Suzie will welcome your group with a tour of the fields. From there we can organize activities, screen an outdoor movie from our barn “straw bale theater” or teach a hands-on workshop on the farm or in the kitchen. And finally, you’ll be treated to a family-style organic meal in a gorgeous outdoor setting.
Jay and Suzie also tend to a flock of pastured organic laying hens and have a heritage hog operation for folks who enjoy quality, humanely-raised bacon, chops and sausage. Guests at our farm-to-table dinner last Fall commented that the ham we served was the best they had ever tasted. If you would like to participate in hog shares or the egg CSA please see their products link.
Potrero Nuevo Farm loves volunteers and they offer many opportunities to come pitch in! Bring the family and learn how to farm the earth. Or come and share the harvest with us at one of our upcoming events – or at your own private celebration!
Let us show you what our beautiful bountiful California coast has to offer!
