Larder Meat Co Dinner at Stepladder Ranch

Grace Lorenzen Favorites-0021.jpg

When we first started the Larder Meat Co in May of 2016, we hosted a dinner at one of our partner farms, Stepladder Ranch, just outside of Cambria, CA. Stepladder is known for their artisan goat milk cheeses, which we of course featured on the menu, along with their pork, passionfruit, and avocados. We poured our favorite local cider (from Scar Of The Sea) and wine (a red and a white from Field Recordings) to go with the menu. Our guests sat at one long table under a string of lights. It was the ultimate farm to table dinner experience, something we hope to repeat again soon! If you are interested in joining us for future dinners make sure to join our email list on the homepage of our website to stay in the loop.
