From bakeries to roasteries we'll venture behind the scenes to meet the people & places that make Portland deliciously decadent.

Come spend a few hours, roll up your shirt sleeves and learn a new skill. Then hang up your apron and enjoy a three-course meal paired with beer, wine & sprits. You'll go home full, happy and just a bit wiser.

Plate & Pitchfork Farm Dinners have been getting to the root of good taste for ten years. Now it's time to come inside and explore the many other aspects of food production. We'll offer at least one ForkLift event a month from Feb - May. Each event will provide a hands-on learning experience for our guests, and for this reason we'll limit the group size to approximately 40 guests. Tickets must be purchased in advance, and are non-refundable. They may be transfered. As these events involve alcohol they are not suitable for minors, unless otherwise specified. We apologize for the inconvenience but this does include babes in arms.

If you're interested in becoming a part of ForkLift or Plate & Pitchfork as a partner or advertiser, or if you'd just like to know more about us, please give us a call 503.477.7565 or send us a note.
