On November 20th, 2010 from 4 PM to 7 PM, Carroll County Fresh invites 'Our Friends and Neighbors' to a free event celebrating the 2010 harvest and local food production and eating.
Holiday Island resident and CCF Board Member Richard Pille said, 'Carroll County Fresh wants to thank everyone who supported our Farmers' Markets and our locally based natural and organic food producers during the 2010 harvest year. We think the best way to do that is to have a party and celebrate the relationship between farmers and consumers.
'Just about everyone today knows we need to eat healthier foods,' Pille continued. 'The small farmers and market gardeners in Carroll County know that more than anyone, and they take a lot of pride in making sure that the food they grow is healthy, fresh, and high quality. We want to make consumers happy and healthy!'
MEET YOUR FARMER kicks off at 4 PM at The Barn on the Island at Holiday Island. People attending this free event can pick up information about the area's small farms and farmers, sample delicious soups, breads, and salads prepared with Fresh & Local ingredients, and enjoy music provided by the Carroll County All-Stars with Lonnie Nichols and the Phillippe Family Quartet! There will also be a raffle and a cash bar serving local wine and beer.
'We've had a great growing year and tremendous support from folks here in Carroll County,' Pille said. 'Carroll County Fresh's WELL FED NEIGHBOR event is our opportunity to introduce consumers to the small farmers who grow their food--and to thank them for their patronage during 2010. We hope everyone will come and enjoy the music, the food, and the chance to 'meet their farmer'.
