About Cultivate

Cultivate creates authentic, joyful dining experiences with hyper-seasonal, organic ingredients sourced directly from Oregon and Washington farmers, ranchers, fishermen and foragers. Our keen intuition, years of experience and trusted relationships with local producers result in the purest food sourcing and most sustainable operation imaginable. We approach each event with the belief that lovingly prepared food is a vehicle for bringing communities together in shared celebration.

Whether we’re hosting a pop-up dinner for 20 or a grand wedding for 200, we bring love and handcrafted attention to every innovative dish we prepare. There is an intimacy in our relationship to food that translates into unforgettable dining experiences, where flavors burst honestly on the tongue.

Cultivate is helmed by executive chef, Ginger Power, who formed the company under the original name, Orchard House Catering, over 15 years ago in Hood River, Oregon. Classically trained at the Culinary Institute of America and the Cascade Culinary Institute under Julian Darwin, Ginger is the official caterer for Mt. Hood Organic Farms, and also hosts weddings, celebrations and other farm-to-table dining events in the Columbia River Gorge area of Oregon and Washington. During the winters, Ginger decamps to the mountains of Utah for menu development and as much skiing as possible.
