Bainbridge Island, WA
Join us at Heyday Farm, Saturday, June 2, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for lunch with Joel Salatin, the 'grass farmer' featured in the New York Times bestseller Omnivore’s Dilemma by food writer Michael Pollan. Salatin is also the author of many books including his most recent "Folks, This Ain't Normal."
Enjoy a farm fresh lunch and listen to a spirited talk from Salatin about “Holy Cows and Hog Heaven” and the sacredness of food that connects both farmers and eaters.
All proceeds from ticket sales for this event benefit Friends of the Farms, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and their efforts to preserve 16 acres of historic farmland on Bainbridge Island. Manzanita Farm has been producing local food since the early 1900s and owned by Akio Suyematsu since the 1960s.
Joel Salatin’s day-long visit to Bainbridge Island is sponsored by Friends of the Farms, Harbour Public House, Heyday Farm, Town and Country Market, Pane d' Amore and Bainbridge Graduate Institute.
