FARM DINNER at the Ranch

A Unique Experience

At the Farm Dinner at Rancho Los Alamitos, you will enjoy a gracious garden party reception with a down-home “ranch” flair, then dine amid the corrals, barns and farm animals for a delightful evening of remarkable food, lively entertainment and good friends. Your farm-to-table feast is prepared by Chef Paul Buchanan, voted the Best Chef in 2015, 2016 and 2017 by the Long Beach Press Telegram Reader’s Choice Awards.

Summer garden party wear is suggested. Grassy lawns and walkway surfaces are irregular so please wear flat, comfortable shoes. High heels are not recommended. Proceeds will support the educational programs at Rancho Los Alamitos.

Your evening ... 

Arrive. Enter the site through the historic gates of Rancho Los Alamitos passing by the giant bamboo and the Native Garden, and then through the Music Patio to enter the recently-reopened Ranch House for a glimpse of gracious living in the home of one of Long Beach’s oldest families.

Wander.  Enjoy music, specialty appetizers, prosecco and craft beers in the Rancho’s sprawling front lawn in a garden party atmosphere. Take your time to peruse and bid on the silent auction items under the spreading boughs of the remarkable 125-year-old Moreton Bay Fig trees. Wander through the Rose Garden in its full summer majesty and don't miss out on craft beer tasting.

Relax. Find a seat for dinner among friends at the long table, beautifully set for a late-summer evening in the historic Barns Area of the ranch and anticipate the good food about to emerge from the bustling kitchen. Select your special wine to match your meal in the Wine Pantry. Preview the menu!

Feast. A surprising and delectable multi-course meal served family-style and specially designed for Rancho Los Alamitos by Chef Paul and his team at Primal Alchemy. You will enjoy the best in sustainably-grown produce and locally sourced food items.

Enjoy. Lively music by a local indie band

Support. You will have a chance to support the Rancho in several ways tonight; not the least of which will be bidding on creative auction items. Check out the list of auction items>

Sponsor! Funds from our Farm Dinner will support educational programs for youth and adults including school tours for children, Native American Culture Workshop: Tongva Tovaave and large public events. Please join our growing list of friends, supporters and partners!
