Locavores enjoy an evening of Hickories fall harvest vegetables and our own delicious lamb and other alternative proteins prepared by Dan Sabia from “Wood Fire Food”. A short farm walk followed by a hearty meal that should inspire one to think more broadly about interesting protein options in our foodshed.
Dan’s mission is to bring people back to the center, back to the basics, and to evoke all the joys of good food, fellowship, and craftsmanship.
