    San Diego Grown


    Every other year, we host the San Diego Grown Dinner, a unique farm to table dining experience that features a prominent chef making magic with our local bounty. The rotating venue allows guests to see and experience private farming locales throughout the county. All proceeds benefit the San Diego County Farm Bureau in support of the work it does to preserve local farming and the local farm to table movement.

    The next San Diego Grown Dinner will be hosted in 2020. Date TBD.


    Revisit the 2016 Dinner…

    In 2016, participants enjoyed a once in a lifetime opportunity to dine at the last standing rancho in California: Rancho Guejito. In 1845, Rancho Guejito was one of the 800 original Mexican Land Grant ranches awarded during a romantic period of history known as the Days of the Dons. Untouched by time, and featuring approximately 23,000 acres, Rancho Guejito is usually not open to the public eye. Guests were served refreshing local food and beverages prepared by one of San Diego’s most beloved and highly-regarded chefs, Antonio Friscia and his talented team: Amiko Gubbins, Michael Ground, and Fern Tran. The picturesque and breathtaking vista was complete with entertainment and delightful company.
