Feed Your Soul's Semi-Annual Chef-to-Farm Experience
Join fellow chefs for a personal tour of some of Erie County's best farms. Participants will meet in the morning, board a bus perfectly sized for our small group and travel to Alden to visit Oles' Farm, a family-run CSA. From there we'll venture on to Dayton, NY to Blossom Hill, a family farm that raises heritage breed cows and hogs. After a tour, a delicious picnic lunch with a focus on local foods will be served to us by Blossom Hill's own Jo'el Drajem. Next we'll stop in East Otto to visit Patrick Lango of White Cow Dairy whose award-winning yogurt and cheese products have graced the pages of major food magazines and newspapers. Finally, we'll wind up our adventure at Native Offerings, one of the area's most progressive farms and a popular CSA with weekly drops in the city.
Chef-to-Farm is designed to allow passionate Buffalo-area chefs the opportunity to learn about current farming practices, experience WNY's unique agricultural landscape and to engage in one-on-one dialogue with the producers of some of WNY's finest products. Plus, chefs will return to their kitchens with samples of the glorious offerings produced by some of our region's best farmers.
The bus will depart from the pick-up area on time. The pick-up area is the LaSalle Park and Ride Metro Station located on Main Street a few blocks south of University of Buffalo's South Campus. Please feel free to call Feed Your Soul if you need directions.
