Markegard Family Grass-Fed Outdoor Dinner in Jenner (Sonoma County)
We return to Markegard Family Grass-Fed in Jenner for an autumn meal in their lush pastures overlooking the Sonoma coast. Erik and Doniga Markegard are deeply dedicated and knowledgeable ranchers, and it’s a joy to hear them speak about their story and their practices while staring into sweeping views of happy grazing cows, chickens, pigs and lambs.
Through their regenerative grazing system, the Markegards aim to boost the health of their soil and their animals. This leads to some very nutritious and delicious meat, which guest chef Byron Hughes knows just what to do with. He’s the culinary powerhouse behind Last Supper Society in Sacramento, a custom culinary experience aimed at forging connections and celebrating cultural differences. Byron and his team cooked us for us at Markegard last year and is cooking earlier this year at Forlorn Hope as well. We are thrilled to have him back for another round.
Expect an unforgettable meal featuring Afro-Asian flavors, flame-grilled Markegard meat and fall vegetables from surrounding farms. Click here for tickets!
