(Fort Collins, CO—Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2016) To celebrate the end of the Pacific Northwest salmon season and the start of Poudre Valley Community Farms, Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar is presenting the 2nd Annual Harvest Moon Salmon Bake on Sunday, Sept. 25 at 5 p.m. The evening will take place at Native Hill Farm, 2100 W. County Rd. 54G in Fort Collins, and benefit Poudre Valley Community Farms, a local land cooperative dedicated to the success of community farming practices.

Jax Chef Ricky Myers will treat guests to a freshly prepared five course dinner, including several whole salmons cooked over an open fire. In addition to the exquisite cuisine, the event will feature beer pairings by Odell Brewing Company, select wines, a bonfire and live entertainment by Fort Collins band, Smooth Beethoven. Coffee for dessert will be provided by Harbinger Coffee, and the welcome cocktail will be from Old Town Distilling.

“Poudre Valley Community Farms places great emphasis on local and sustainable practices,” said Jax General Manager Rick Compton. “These are values that are heavily advocated by Jax, and we look forward to supporting this organization through such an enjoyable event.”

Poudre Valley Community Farms strives to keep farmland in the hands of local farmers and ranchers by purchasing land and leasing it to community members. By preventing agricultural land from being used for commercial purposes, the organization can provide opportunities for local food production and economic growth.
