At Taste Washington on the Farm, you’ll explore the region’s beautiful products alongside local chefs, winemakers and farmers. Head out on curated excursions to the farms supplying Seattle’s award-winning eateries with quality ingredients.

Each unique excursion will pair a farmer with a chef and Washington winemakers. You’ll tour the property, then hear directly from chefs and winemakers as they serve you lunch made from the farm’s products and paired with Washington wines.
