Feast of Fields
"For 24 years Organic Advocates has been promoting organic agriculture, putting chefs and farmers together raising awareness about organics to the public and helping finance organic projects. In that time frame, organic agriculture has become the fastest growing segment of the industry and the public has become very aware of organic products which can now be found in most grocery stores. We have expanded our mandate to also help promote environmental concerns, local and sustainable agriculture and a healthy life through eating organic foods."
"As a chef, Feast of Fields has always been my favourite food event. The site at Cold Creek Conservation Area is a beautiful outdoor setting. The ambiance of the place enhances the experience of tasting delcious organic foods, prepare in innovative ways. There is a relaxed ease to the day - there is time to chat with a farmer, and taste some wonderful produce, or learn about the latest solar power systems. You can sample local and organic wines, while talking to the wine maker about their passion for their newest wine. There are micro-breweries, organic coffee and tea, as well as delicious desserts. When it's all over, you feel full, relaxed, happy, and can't wait for next year!
Feast of Fields is an event created by Organic Advocates, a non-profit organization that supports organic food awareness and sustainability.
