Muir Ranch’s Farm-to-Table 2017 Schedule!

Jun 4, 2017

Muir Ranch has released its popular farm-to-table dinner series’ 2017 schedule, so plan accordingly!

First up, Paul Ragan of AltaEats will be the “special guest chef” on July 28.

The evening’s meal is prepared with Muir Ranch harvested garden veggies and fruit. Per usual, a seat at the table costs $50 (plus processing fee, if purchased online).

For supper + a Muir Ranch t-shirt, add on an extra $15.

“Supper + Flowers on your Head” costs $75.

Remember, even though it’s stated that tickets may be purchased “at the door,” seating is limited and these suppers have been selling out. Tickets are tax deductible and support the Muir Ranch summer internship program.


Below are examples of dishes from the 2016 Muir Ranch Farm-to-Table suppers.







Another reminder, heels are not happy navigating the mulch pathways, so wear flat, comfy shoes.

A supper is planned for every month through October…

Muir Ranch is an operating “biodynamic urban teaching farm” on 3.5 acres of land on the campus of John Muir High School. Begun in 2012, this farm grows flowers, vegetables, and fruit that are used in the school cafeteria, as well as in weekly Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) boxes. Participating students run a flower design business, providing stunning custom flower arrangements for weddings, events, individuals, and businesses.

Besides the opportunities for students to learn, the community benefits as well.

Muir Ranch may be found at the various farmers markets in the area, including the Altadena Farmers Market every Wednesday, 3-7 p.m. CSA pickup available at this time and seasonal veggies for $2; herbs, $2; and mini flower bouquets, $8.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a model of food production and distribution that provides a direct link between local farmers and consumers. It is a contract between the community and local food producers; a promise that consumers will support farmers through lean times and times of high production. 

Every week, Muir Ranch CSA subscribers get a box or bag of about 7-10 different types of fruit and vegetables grown without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Customers pick their shares up at central distribution sites throughout Pasadena. Muir Ranch CSA partners with several local farms for seasonal fruit and vegetables to supplement the farm’s produce, providing tax-deductible weekly boxes to over 100 subscribers. You, too, can be part of this healthy program and enjoy eating with the seasons. (
