Our most anticipated event of the year is upon us...

We're gearing up for another successful farm roast event this summer on Sunday, September 9th (2pm-5pm) with our gracious hosts - Local Foods Grocer & Distributor. We're busy ironing out every last detail. So keep your eyes on this space as we confirm who's coming, what's cooking and why an add-on experience is a good idea.
