Oliveto’s Annual Tomato Dinners 2017

Beginning next Tuesday September 12th through Saturday the 16th

While the Tomato Dinners have always been a vegetarian’s delight, we’re also proud to pair tomatoes with BN Ranch’s exceptional lamb on this year’s menu:

Roast lamb with marinated tomatoes, yellow Romano beans, and

Bill Niman’s latest endeavor, BN ranch, is renown for their holistic approach to animal husbandry and land stewardship—and delicious meat. Flocks of sheep and herds of cattle are rotated in patterns that mimic ancient and pre-historic herbivores to improve soil fertility and water holding capacity. Well managed grazing is an essential part of a bio-regenerative food system as the animal activity ultimately reduces soil erosion and increases carbon sequestration.

Above, shepherds in the valleys of Contra Costa Country in Northern California tend the herds 24/7, along with the help of their border-collies. Lambs are bred to make tender, delicious meat: Rambouillet ewes crossed with bucks that are a mix of Suffolk, Hampshire and Texel. Lambs are fed only mother’s milk and the grass and legumes on which they naturally graze.

We hope you can join us.
