Jeff and Amy Dietrich started Walla Walla Valley-based Froghollow Farm out of their passion, dedication and hard work ethic. They aimed to foster that ethic in their two children to ultimately build character and “other-centeredness,” right down to donating blemished produce to local food banks and schools. The Dietrichs draw satisfaction in chef-farmer relationships, and Jason’s rapid-fire questions and passion for quality produce underscore how they’re growing with a purpose. Exclusive to The Lakehouse is the “Litchie,” Froghollow’s “Frog Egg” eggplant and cherry tomato cross that has a hint of strawberry. Also look for Froghollow’s bitter melon and many other fresh produce items worked into craft cooking on the menu.
