LOCAL FOOD FRONT AND CENTRE AT TWO UXBRIDGE EVENTS

Foggy River Farm was delighted to play a role at two great events this fall in our home of Uxbridge, Ontario. On September 24, guests from near and far hopped aboard the York-Durham Heritage Railway to enjoy local food and drinks, all benefitting the Uxbridge Loaves and Fishes food bank. A four-course, gourmet meal was served by The Urban Pantry, including fresh ingredients from our farm. Browse photos from the event here.

One week later on October 1, Blue Heron Books and Urban Pantry partnered for another great night of food to celebrate the launch of Canadian Chef Michael Smith’s new cookbook Real Food Real Good. The event featured an on-site farmers’ market, where Foggy River Farm offered produce for sale and chatted with guests about edible landscapes and converting backyard spaces into food producing ecosystems. The rain held off until the very end, and Michael Smith gave an engaging talk about dangerous food myths and getting kids involved with food in a more meaningful way.
