Thanksgiving is the best holiday of aaalll!!!

The last farm dinner of 2022 falls on Thanksgiving weekend. We may have some trouble selling this one out, with family gatherings having returned to thing-ness, but we remember Friendsgiving also being a common thing in the before times, and the desire to let someone else do the hosting, we feel, is still very real today. So we remain hopeful! 📢 tell your friends! 

As far as the menu goes, we've deliberated, consulted various experts, hemmed and hawed. We've come to this food-smith gig as a political statement, so menu choices are taken quite seriously around here, and Thanksgiving is definitely a loaded idea, a tough one for many Indigenous people to swallow. (We've heard it called 'thanks-taking' before.) After all this consideration, we’ve arrived upon an ironically recognizable menu, centered around some heritage turkeys from Cirrus Hill Farm in Meaford. The traditional Thanksgiving menu is in fact a very wise and ancient teaching in itself, and we look forward to sharing the experience of contemplating its implications with you, at our last farm dinner of the season on October 9th.  See link in bio to get your tickets!

Fall is officially here, and that means the kitchen, both at home and in the foodio, is abuzz with activity. Pictured here is our first batch of tomato sauce, using mainly Grightmire's Pride tomatoes, a beautiful, huge, heritage tomato. Grown in the field, ripened on the vine. We are trying to capture all the sunshine and freshness that we can, for us and for you!

Market stall vibes curtesy of the soft September light and @twigandbrindille's lovely flowers. Hard to make a frozen product table flashy... hand sanitizer cameo to be up with the times ;) We're at the @owensoundfarmersmarket (most) Saturdays 8:00-12:30 with our prepared foods. ALSO: did you know you can pre-order farm products to pickup at market??? Just order online and indicate "market pickup" in the order notes. Easy!  #farmersmarket #fallvibes #prettyflowers #localflowers #ontariogrown #visitgrey

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you to all the people (animals and vegetables too!) that make the farm dinners - and farming in general possible. 
Thank you to the people that attended the dinner, those who bought the tickets the second the dates were announced, and those that swooped in at the last second to save the day, making this a sold out event, again! Thank you to our fabulous team of conspirators and collaborators; the people behind the scenes the day of, and the many days leading to the dinner. It's such a phenomenal team, we all agree. Thank you to the many other farmers whose products we so appreciate, you truly rounded out the menu beautifully and help us build the sense that local bounty is possible and delicious.  Also, thank you to the chickens for the sustenance - both directly (on our plates) and indirectly (in our fields). Thank you to the veggies, that keep on giving even in the face of neglect. And thank you to you followers. Your interest and support are what make this crazy (ad)venture possible.  #farmtour #farmtotable #knowyourfarmer #farmdinner #visitgrey #greycountytourism #localfood #ontariogrown
This story has a happy ending... We had a bunch of last minute cancellations, after we told many of you that we were sold out for the farm dinner this Sunday. So, we posted about it (hoping it want too late for those that were interested, and we could still turn this into a sold out event!)

And we are SOLD OUT (again!). Woot woot!
