Delight in an afternoon getting closer to your food, learning about the agricultural practices of Moon Valley Farm and enjoying a "farm to fork" meal. Moon Valley Farm is located on 25 acres of lush bottom land in the northwest corner of Monroe County. They grow and raise their animals, vegetables, and medicinal herbs using primarily permaculture-based practices. They rotationally graze their herds of mixed-breed dairy cows, goats, and sheep on a 100% grass-based diet. Their American guinea hogs and chickens eat only local, non-GMO corn and forage. They raise vegetables and medicinal herbs using organic methods, never using chemicals. They produce soaps and herbal products with their milk and botanicals, and offer seasonal Herbal CSA shares. They are building an apothecary/holistic herbal education center on farm, and hope to offer classes and apprenticeships in the upcoming years. They are a small family farm with big ideas and ideals! Visit them on Facebook to learn more about their farm: facebook.com/moonvalleyfarm. The evening culminates in a dinner prepared by local chefs from No Coast Reserve and Function Brewing, including vegetarian and vegan options. It's an experience you won't want to miss.

Co-Sponsored by Local Growers Guild, Bloomingfoods Market and Deli, Harvest Moon Flower Farm, No Coast Reserve and Function Brewing.
