    Sounds like an incredible event and an awesome chance to try some amazing food and incredible beer right there on the farm. Thank you for the chance at winning tickets.

    I want to go as it sounds like we would be transported to a Sicilian village. I can almost picture it. I have been to a sausage Side yard event and the food was amazing and the people are really friendly, like a big family reunion gathering. The Goschie family are pretty special too, from what I read online about the Hop king who recently passed –

    I’m working to build a regional food system that nourishes us all. Haven’t been to a Side Yard dinner (but cheered when they won an @edibleportland Local Hero Award!) and am not (yet) familiar with Groschie Farm – would love to experience both and provide whatever support I can. – @aoborne
