Please to join us to celebrate the fall harvest and support a new generation of ecological farmers at our 3rd Harvest Table Dinner, at Earth to Table Farm in Flamborough, Ontario on Saturday, October 4, 2014. The crisp fall evening will be filled with charm and delectable things to taste! Join us for a farm tour and hors d’oeuvres, a four course family-style Harvest Table dinner, live entertainment, silent auction and more.
Executive Chef Jeff Crump of Earth to Table (and the Ancaster Mill) will prepare the delicious meal featuring the farms fresh organic vegetables and pastured chickens, along with other locally produced organic meat, cheese, beer and wine.
Join 200 guests as well as our farmers at our long harvest tables, with the century barn gables reaching overhead and a stunning view over the farm fields and the Niagara Escarpment. All funds raised support FarmStart’s programs and services that help new ecological farmers get started on a successful path to farming.
At the Earth to Table Farm, FarmStart is building a new Start-Up Farm on back 50 acres of rich land, along side the new apple orchards, butchery and the important wetlands. Working ‘on the ground’ with new farmers, we provide access to land, equipment, and infrastructure as well as mentorship and support during their first 5 years. FarmStart is currently developing a training farm to provide prospective new farmers experience with a pastured livestock operation. This season at the Earth to Table Start-Up Farm there are 4 farmers (farm teams), ranging from their first to their fourth year digging in and starting their new farms growing a diverse range of crops including; honey and over a hundred varieties of vegetables, as well as pastured chickens. The produce is beautiful, freshly picked, and sold directly to consumers through farmers markets, restaurants, and “you-pick” operations.
