Have you ever wondered who grows the food that is on your plate? Helping people connect with the people who grow some of their food is the aim of our "Meet the Farmers Open House" on Tuesday, July 12, at 5 p.m.
"Many people have little connection with the people who grow their food," says John Moulton, owner of Moulton Farm. "Certainly, in the grocery store, there's no connection. Even in our farm market, our customers often know our farm market staff and maybe me depending on the day and the weather. They rarely get the chance to interact with the rest of our team who do the work of growing the food because we're out in our fields planting, tending crops, and harvesting."
In this special evening event, visitors will meet some of the people at our farm who are involved in the daily process of growing and harvesting the food. The farm's team will share what they do, why they enjoy the challenging profession of farming and answer questions. Guided wagon tours around the farm will be an enjoyable way to see more of the farm and learn about the practices we use.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to sample some of the items prepared in our farm kitchen and farm bakery using food that has been grown at the farm.
The "Meet the Farmers Open House" starts at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12. It is a free event, and registration is not required, but doing so will help us prepare for the event. Register by clicking here.
