Thank you Jaye for leading with vision and purpose – diligently aimed towards Farm & Table’s mission. For working so many hours with true dedication. Thank you.
Thank you to my culinary team – a group of true artists who show their passion for food every day. A team that seriously blows me away with their dedication and talent. You are tremendously appreciated.
To my dishwashers and porters – who do so much more. You put in extra hours to help in so many ways – I am so proud to have you on our team.
Thank you to my front of the house team. You are a group of intelligent individuals who give a damn about what you do! Thank you! You are the very best team, and I couldn’t be more proud of the way you represent Farm & Table.
Thank you, Farmer Ric. With your steadfast vision and work ethic that makes producing thousands of seedlings into hundreds of pounds of delicious, organic produce look simple. We all know it is not. You are amazing. Thank you to all Ric’s volunteers who work countless hours – cradling our farm with good intention with every weeding, seeding, and harvest. Your love is evident in the food that we eat. Thank you to Aimee – your beautiful flower arrangements, your work on the farm stand, your presence and friendship is valued.
Thank you to all of our farmers…so many of you now. You are each incredible. Your hard work and dedication to food is mind-blowing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping to keep our coolers stocked with the very best produce.
Thank you to ranchers, who raise your animals with pride. Feeding them with quality feed. Producing the best tasting meat. Thank you for your uncompromising dedication.
Food artisans – producing cheese, sausage, honey, milled wheat and corn, and jam. Your love for what you do is evident in the taste of your food. Thank you.
To my mom and dad for supporting me, my dreams for Farm & Table, and its success. For being a catalyst for a resurgence of respect and honor for land, farmer, and water – right here where our family has been for so many generations – Alameda. For saving these 12 acres of precious land and allowing me to live out my dream. For supporting me with love, time, and patience.
To my sisters. You have supported Farm & Table with your talents, skills, and patronage. Thank you for connecting Farm & Table with your friends, extended families, and loved ones. Thank you for being a part of this dream… I am so grateful.
Thank you to my friends. Your support, love, and encouragement helped thrust this idea forward. Your involvement made the impossible, possible. Sea shells and honey….like mana from heaven.
Thank you to Noah & Eden – my wonderful children who are a part of this joyful experience every day. Who have adopted the Farm & Table crew as an extended family, and who remind Joseph & I when it’s time to leave the restaurant and return to the sanctuary of home.
Thank you to Joseph who continues to be the yin to my yang. You work so many hours – from managing expansion projects, fixing equipment, picking up lunch for the staff, to running the floor on our busiest nights. Thank you for connecting with Farm & Table guests on a personal, genuine level – making sure they know how important they are to us and how much we appreciate them.
Thank you GUESTS. You are the reason we exist. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to turn the spotlight to our bigger community and supporting small farmers and food artisans. For appreciating our food. Thank you for your patronage – and believing in us. You are a part of this movement of local food – and indeed a member of the Farm & Table Family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
With the most sincere gratitude, I thank you.
