Vancouver event to offer fun with food on the farm

July 21, 2018 by  

Urban dwellers may sometimes feel disconnected from the source of the meal on their plate, but a Vancouver event will seek to help them learn more about where their food comes from.

Feast of Fields will showcase a sampling of what area farmers and other growers have to offer, while providing a sneak peek into how these agricultural products are grown and harvested. Guests will be invited to take a stroll through a farm field to visit the different stations that will be set up, and their route will take them through a barn, past a tractor, or even around a chicken coop.

While the diners enjoy their food, they will be treated to live music. The edibles will be crafted by area chefs, bakers, brewers, vintners and other food service insiders, and branded wooden plates will be available for purchase. Both a raffle and silent auction will be included on the agenda, and donations will be gratefully accepted.

The goal of the occasion is both to raise awareness of where food comes form and also to help build sustainable food production systems throughout the province. Banner printing services for this type of function can be sourced from a locally based printer.

The 24th annual Feat of Fields will be held on September 9 at 3461 Ross Drive in Vancouver. It is scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm, and tickets start at $15.
