Takin' it Slow

Find out what buzz words like "locavore", "sustainable farming" and "seasonal cuisine" mean at the
the second annual Local Harvest: Farms, Food, and Family event on Saturday, January 16, 2010 (snow date: January 23) from noon to 4 p.m. at the Cultural Center in Morristown, NJ. Sponsored by the Northern New Jersey Chapter of Slow Food in partnership with the Morris County Park Commission, the event will bring together many local farmers and food artisans for an afternoon of sampling and purchasing.
Visitors can purchase seasonal vegetables and fruit, grass-fed and finished beef and pork, poultry, eggs, cheese, breads, teas, and prepared foods from local growers and producers while learning about Community Supported Agriculture and how to purchase seasonal farm shares at Genesis Farm in Blairstown, NJ, and Rogowski Farm in Warwick, NY. Participants include Bob-O-Link Dairy and Bakeyard, Valley Shepherd Creamery, Appleridge Farm, Best Fruit Farm, the Health Shoppe, and Arthur & Friends, an entrepreneurial training program for adults with disabilities, which sells locally grown organic hydroponic greens.

Displays about Northern NJ’s agricultural past from The Morris County Historical Society and Fosterfields Living Historical Farm’s interpretive display on early farm life, sustainable farming, and heritage breeds will round out the program.
