The Panelists for April 3's Potluck: Know Your Farmer


We are happy to share with you that we have confirmed six, thats right six, farms for our Know Your Farmer Potluck.  As said before this event should be a lot of fun.  These farmers have faced many obstacles in starting and sustaining their farms, let alone getting to the place where they realized farming is their calling.  They have amazing stories to share and their farm products are delicious.  We can't wait for you to meet them.  Hope to see you there!
