Skagit River Ranch Farm Day

SKagit RR

On August 30th, the very popular Skagit River Ranch will be hosting “Farm Day” at its Sedro Woolley farm. In addition to a farm tour with owners George and Eiko Vojkovich, there will be live music, free burgers for all and a burger cook-off among guest chefs Greg Atkinson, cookbook author; our very own Craig Hetherington, and James Beard Award-winner Maria Hines, of Tilth. The chefs also will offer their perspectives on sustainability during a panel discussion. We hope to see you there!

Here’s the schedule for the event:
