Eat Retreat

A creative retreat and national community of food leaders

What is Eat Retreat?

Eat Retreat is an annual creative retreat for food and agriculture professionals. We bring together people from across the country and across food disciplines for an immersive, four-day retreat to cook, eat and collaborate. The objective of this annual event is to exchange ideas, spark inspiration and create meaningful connections. Learning and sharing takes place formally through workshops and informally around the campfire.

Who Comes to Eat Retreat?

Eat Retreaters are entrepreneurs, cooks, farmers, food writers, butchers, bakers, beekeepers, photographers, food system visionaries, community builders and makers of all kind. Each year, attendees arrive with curiosity and something to share and leave as part of a strong professional network. Meet the Eat Retreat alumni.

Want to Join Us?

For each event, we bring together a diverse group of 35 to 40 enthusiastic and generous folks through on an online application process. Attendees are hand-selected for their expertise, collaborative skills, creativity and gusto. To be notified of future events, join our email list. 

Everyone brings a zealous appetite to see, try, learn, collaborate, test, taste, burn, smell and smoke everything with insane enthusiasm.
