CELEBRATING LOCAL FOOD & LOCAL FARMS
The annual Farm to Fork Picnic, which Bon Appétit magazine called the "country's best all-you-can-eat-feast," is expanding to a delicious weekend full of local food events June 5-7, 2015. Benefiting beginner farmer programs at the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) and the W.C. Breeze Family Farm, Farm to Fork celebrates our region's rich bounty of local foods and honors the skillful farmers and chefs who artfully produce and prepare them. This year's Farm to Fork events will have a special focus on seafood, a critical but often overlooked component of our state's local food system.
Paul Greenberg, The New York Times best-selling author of Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food and American Catch: The Fight for Our Local Seafood, will be the weekend's distinguished guest. Four Fish won the James Beard Award in 2011 and was the basis for a Time Magazine cover story.
