Yesterday afternoon, Tulalip Resort Casino‘s Executive Chef Perry Mascetti, Food & Beverage Purchaser Jeff Bray, and Administrative Assistant Wendy Blake took some time on a sunny afternoon to visit and tour Biringer Farm, meet with owners Mike & Dianna Biringer, and NABC’s Karen Mauden.
“It’s all about local” states Executive Chef Perry. Tulalip Resort Casino is passionate about helping local farms.
Biringer Farm and the Biringer family has been a 40-year Marysville/Arlington area farm and community partner. Their premium fruits include several varieties of strawberries, raspberries, tayberries, black raspberries and blackberries. Many locals have taken advantage of Biringer Farm U-Pick opportunities throughout the years.
Biringer Farm also has Berry Barns throughout Snohomish County for those that can’t make the trip to the farm. Additionally, they also sell their berries to other Snohomish County area farms for their fresh produce stands.
But outreach to local suppliers, retailers and restaurants is also an important component of rounding out their business model. We are thankful that the Tulalip Resort and Casino is passionate and interested in partnership!
