“At Farm Spirit, we strive to calibrate the community of Portland to the rhythm of the seasons. I am overjoyed and honored to receive this award and humbled to be amongst the other nominees. Most especially, I want to thank those who work in the orchards and fields to bring us the bounty that makes our restaurant possible, my talented staff, and our guests who support our mission at every dinner service,” says Aaron Adams, chef and owner of Farm Spirit.
