Do our veggies taste better than other places? Thanks to Good Earth Farms, they ARE better!

Central Oregon is blessed to have a wide variety of organic and environmentally minded farmers. Recently, Tetherow has partnered with Bend’s Good Earth Farms to fulfill a variety of our produce needs. The pairing happened naturally. Good Earth Farms discovered Tetherow when they expanded their farm this year. They had heard about us through other restaurants in town and were intrigued by our desire to work with local businesses.

Member’s in the News: Chris and Jeremy Cox of 10 Barrel!

10 Barrel has quickly become a beloved Bend trademark, and Tetherow is delighted to be the golf club home of its business partners, Chris and Jeremy Cox.

Since 10 Barrel opened in 2006 as a small brewery, it has grown into… Read More
