Hawk & Heron Family Farm and Home Fire Fund

On September 8th, Hawk & Heron Farm and family home, owned by Nathan and Raelynn Bates, was lost in a fire. Nathan is the incredibly hard working Head Chef at Tavern on Kruse and his farm serves as one of the sources for our farm-to-table produce. This loss is unexpected and not only devastating to his family and friends, but for the restaurant as well. 

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to help Nathan and his family begin to rebuild their home, their farm, and their life. 

If you are friends of Chef Nathan or have dined with us at Tavern on Kruse, please spread the message by sharing the link with your friends and family on Facebook or other social medias. Any contribution you can make helps and we appreciate your support.
