Ventura County's Support-Local Program

Totally Local VC’s
2019 Farm-to-Fork Dinner Series

The innovative dinner series promoting Ventura County’s
world-class agriculture and cuisine is back for its eleventh year !

Farm-to-Fork at
its very best

Southern California foodies typically have a lot to look forward to as the seasons evolve, especially on the Gold Coast with our powerful agricultural legacy. This year, the anticipation again rises a notch higher as Totally Local VC presents our 2019 Farm-to-Fork Dinner Series. Our innovative dining events marry iconic Ventura County locations with some of the area’s top-line chefs, purveyors, wines and brews, preparing seasonal selections harvested from the region’s most celebrated farms.

The dinner series revolves around seasonal, local fare. Every aspect of the evening – from cuisine to libation to music, entertainment and decor – derives from local auspices and is indicative of and in keeping with the incredible bounty that is Ventura County.

The events are priced at $145 per person. This sum buys the experience of five-course meal, paired with local wine, beer and entertainment, an offering that presents a unique community-building opportunity for all involved, from guests to organizers, beneficiaries and purveyors.

These dinners WILL sell out!

Totally Local VC's 2019 Farm-to-Fork Dinner Series Schedule

Dinner at the Wicked Wire Ranch

Ocean breezes greet you as you take in the views of the Channel Islands to the mountains of Ojai at this unique dinner setting. Step back to the days of Ventura Avenue’s agricultural past as we kick off the 2019 Totally Local VC Farm-to-Fork Dinner Series. Guests will get a rare, behind-the-scenes peek at Totally Local VC and Local Love Project founder’s Wicked Wire Ranch and its new life as it rises from the ashes of the Thomas Fire.

As the sun starts to set, we will make our way to a grassy meadow for the evening’s farm-to-fork feast. Provided in true Tuscan style by Chef Michelle Kenney of La Dolce Vita Ristorante fame, the menu will be perfectly paired with local wines from Strey Cellars and libations including a signature cocktail from Mixologist Jared Krupp of 1901 Speakeasy.
