Support your local farmers
January 8th: THE ANNUAL NORTH BAY CAFF & FARMERS GUILD GATHERING!
You’re invited to the most local, farm-to-table, homegrown event of the year! Join the whole North Bay CAFF & Farmers Guild community as we gather with farmers and local food advocates from the Golden Gate to the redwood coast to look back on 2018, from our accomplishments in the field to honoring those we’ve lost along the way, all while looking forward to an abundant 2019.
Our organization has declared 2019 “the year of the farmer’s voice”, so on the evening of January 8th we’ll be hearing stories directly from those in the field: some funny, some tragic, most insightful, all salt of the earth. Join us!
Free, All welcome.
Potluck & libations contributions encouraged
Annual gathering directly follows Farmer/Buyer Mixer (details below)
5PM – 8PM
Sebastopol Grange Hall
6000 Sebastopol Ave, Sebastopol, CA
Come meet local farmers and ranchers from around the Bay Area and North Coast to bring the finest, freshest foods to your speciality food business, restaurant, grocery store, cafeteria or other food enterprise. At this “speed dating” mixer, growers and food buyers will meet a variety of potential partners, learn about sourcing options and together build a stronger local food economy.
This event is open to any food business looking to source more directly from local growers as well as to any professional farmers or ranchers ready to provide a steady supply of high quality ingredients.
3 – 5pm
(followed by a networking happy hour from 5 – 6pm)
