An Ultimate Farm Supper, For a Great Cause – 10.24 Family Farmed Harvest Event at Heritage Prairie Market
We are big fans of the things Jim and Holly do at FamilyFarmed.org to improve our local food production, marketing and distribution. For instance, FamilyFarmed has helped make critical improvements in the sourcing of local foods for school lunches. Of course, we love the annual Expo and related Farm to Fork Financing event. To help raise funds for all the good things they do, FamilyFarmed is throwing a bash they call “ultimate” at Heritage Prairie Farms on October 24 at 430 PM. Read the menu and other details below, and you’ll probably want to register immediately. Note, if you want, you can take a bus to the event.
