The way the birds are chirping adds so much spring to the air despite the lingering chill. I can’t help but long for tables stretching over grassy pastures, tomatoes bursting with the sweetness of a dessert, the aroma of basil and mint carried by warm breezes, and bronze shoulders exposed by slipping sundress straps. As the anticipation grows for spring’s rebirth, we can take comfort in the local goodness our region has to offer, and one lucky winner will enjoy that local goodness even more at the annual Farm to Table Conference.
The Annual Farm to Table Conference
Friday & Saturday, March 21st & 22nd
from 10am-5pm each day
at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center
This year’s theme is Food Sources, which supports the Farm to Table Conference’s mission to connect the community to local farms and food producers. Attendees will have the chance to sample local foods from more than 70 vendors, as well as hear speakers, including the Keynote Speaker, Judy Wicks, the founder of White Dog Café and author of Good Morning, Beautiful Business: the Unexpected Journey of an Activist Entrepreneur and Local Economy Pioneer.
Giveaway: Two Tickets to the Friday Night Local Food Tasting
Day one of the conference concludes with a Local Food Tasting from 5-8pm, on Friday, March 21, 2014. I’m giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky reader to enjoy this relaxed gathering of farm exhibitors and like-minded locavores.
The Local Food Tasting will feature several of the region’s best food, wine and beer purveyors. To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below telling me which vendor you’re most excited to try [and tell me why if you’re feeling extra communicative]. On Thursday, March 20th, I’ll announce a random winner.
Winner, winner, Local Foods Dinner…
The Winner is Kezia. Hope you enjoy something from 5 Generation Bakers!
ps: You can also purchase tickets to the conference here.

It looks like a dream to be able to participate into such an event!
I’m excited to meet the folks at Cabot! As a cheesemonger with a long history of working in cooperatives, I know these are my people.
There’s too many to choose from, but Sugar Social sounds delicious and I always love Clarion River Organics!
5 Generation Bakers. I’m currently in love with every bread that comes fresh out of the oven. I don’t have much experience with baking breads and cutting in cold butter 😉 whatever that means, but I’d love to taste the cinnamon goodness that 5 Generation Bakers bake.
I read this while eating Irish Soda Bread with butter & jam. I couldn’t agree more!
I want to see how crazy Pretzel Crazy really is. Also, seeing Judy Wicks speak will be great. She’s a local of my childhood neighborhood and The White Dog is one of my mother’s favorite places to get brunch. Small world.
