“Back by popular demand, this will be our second year hosting the Farm-to-Table event and we are so happy to showcase how delicious local food can be,” said The Old 1862 Ranch owner Jan Loverin. “The dinner makes for an enjoyable and relaxing evening to enjoy specialty food without having to travel too far.”

Located behind Bordertown on north US 395, The Old 1892 Ranch was settled nearly 160 years ago, making it one of the oldest ranches in the Reno area. The house was built in 1930, restored by its current owners, Jim and Jan Loverin in the 1980’s and has two well-preserved 19th century buildings: The Creamery, where cheese and butter were made and sold to local Reno restaurants in the early 20th century, and the Grainery, which served as a storage building for the seed. The “old-time” grounds also have extensive flower and vegetable gardens throughout the property.

The Loverins are great friends of mine, and I’ve had the pleasure of attending several parties at their ranch over the years. These Farm-to-Table events will be an incredible experience for you and your family/friends. Make your reservations today!
