The DD Ranch also sells pork and grass-fed beef raised right on the Ranch.About Chef Kim BastChef Kim Bast was fortunate to grow up under the loving tutelage of many exceptional cooks and knew at an early age that her life’s focus would be food. She’s prepared meals at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, base camp on Mt. Rainier, and many fine kitchens in between. Kim lives with her husband and a bevy of animals at Windy Bottom Farm, where she’s discovered that growing food is as much fun as cooking it.On-Farm Dinners benefit Central Oregon Locavore, a nonprofit organization that’s been promoting a local, sustainable food system in Central Oregon since 2010.
