Wish you could browse aisles locally grown food like you can in the summer?
Head on over to Morris Township on Saturday for the Slow Food Northern New Jersey’s Third Annual Local Harvest: Farms, Food & Family winter market!
Saturday, February 12, 2011, 12 – 4pm (snow date: February 13) at
The Cultural Center
300 Mendham Road
Morris Township, NJ
Seasonal vegetables and fruit, grass-fed and finished beef and pork, sustainably raised poultry, eggs, cheeses, breads, teas, and prepared foods from local growers and producers. Yum!
You can also learn about Community Supported Agriculture and how to purchase seasonal farm shares at Genesis Farm in Blairstown, NJ, Griggstown Quail Farm & CSA and Rogowski Farm. Participants include Bobolink Dairy and Bakehouse, Valley Shepherd Creamery, Appleridge Farm Artisan Bread, Best Fruit Farm, and Arthur & Friends, an entrepreneurial training program for adults with disabilities, which sells locally grown organic hydroponic greens.
Griggstown, Havenwood and Plaid Piper Farm will offer sustainably raised chicken, meats, and eggs, along with prepared foods. We’ve had products from the Plaid Piper Farm so we can hardly wait to more from them and we’re looking forward to trying meats from other farms, too.
Displays about Northern NJ’s agricultural past from Fosterfields Living Historical Farm’s interpretive display on early farm life, sustainable farming, and heritage breeds will round out the program.
