Salem- InFARMation- Farm Direct Meat, Talking to Your Butcher
March 2, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Many folks like the idea of purchasing meat directly from a farmer, but the overwhelming nature of deciding which cuts to order and how to assess a good price per pound can easily dissuade even a conscientious consumer.
By exploring this topic, we seek to support consumers to make responsible meat purchases and provide education so that the regulatory web might untangle (just a bit!)
Join us for a panel discussion featuring:
-Wendy Parker- co-owner of Heritage Farms NW
-Mike Kloft- co-owner of Lonely Lane Farms and Century Oak Packing Company
-Will Fargo- Food Safety Specialist at Oregon Department of Agriculture
more panelists coming soon!
Since January 2009, Friends of Family Farmers has hosted InFARMation each month in Portland. We are excited to host this educational event in Salem beginning in March!
We bring the issues that Oregon family farmers face onto the radar of urban consumers and the community in general. Changing monthly, the topic always focuses on the larger picture of the connection between food and farms in our state. When eaters connect with farmers, it makes our food web stronger and makes real changes in our local food system possible.
This event is FREE, open to the public, and all ages are welcome!
