Description

Elmwood Stock Farm and FoodChain have been partnering to bring affordable, organic, and local food to the community since the FoodChain teaching and processing kitchen opened last fall. So far this partnership has included contributions of produce Grab Bags, made available by FoodChain to the local neighborhood each week, and bulk produce donations, such as black Spanish radishes that were processed into chips and used raw in the Cook.Eat.Grow. children’s cooking program.

On Wednesday evening June 20th, Elmwood and FoodChain will partner once more as Elmwood’s Mac Stone will bring his wit and wisdom to the FoodChain teaching kitchen and lead participants on a farm tour through food. Participants will experience the landscape, livestock, and history of the farm through stories Mac has spent many years collecting and end the evening with a family style meal of Elmwood meat and produce prepared by Chef Allison Davis, Wild Thyme. Guests will enjoy a taste of Elmwood through a demonstration of how good food can be made simply, with quality organic ingredients and the unexpected ease and value in cooking a whole pastured-raised chicken.

“I am excited to bring the farm to town! We really want people to learn about what they’re eating, how that food is grown, who grows it, and how their food choices affect their own health and the health of their communities,” says Elmwood Stock Farm’s Mac Stone.

Tickets are limited! Net proceeds from this event will be contributed to FoodChain.
