Savor & Sample Fest: South Central WI’s Home Grown Food Festival

I just wanted to share with you all an amazing event that is happening tomorrow. After (or before) you stop by the orchard for your apples, caramel apples and cider you should make sure to check out the Savor & Sample Fest: South Central WI’s Home Grown Food Festival. It is being held at Sassy Cow Creamery, W4192 Bristol Road, Columbus, WI tomorrow (September 20th) from 1 until 4 pm.

Rediscover the benefits of buying and eating locally grown food. The first ever South Central WI Local Food Festival will give you a chance to:

  • Talk to the farmers who grow local foods
  • Buy and sell locally grown food
  • Support and strengthen our local food economy
  • Sample and savor local foods

Features of the Savor & Sample Fest:

  • Farm & Creamery Tours
  • Homemade Ice Cream Social (one of the toppings is Lapacek’s Orchard Apple Pie in a Jar…yummmmy!)
  • Local Chef Cooking Demo’s
  • Farmer’s Market Learning Opportunities
  • Preserving homegrown food
  • Growing local food
  • Where to buy and sell local food
    Taste of South Central WI food experience
  • Family and Children Activities
  • Lots more…..

Why eat Local?

  • The food is delicious!
  • Locally-grown food has a smaller carbon foot print (lower pollution due to less travel time).
  • Keeping family farms viable keeps rural landscape alive.
  • Spending your money where you live keeps your community thriving.
  • The less processed the food, the healthier it is.
  • The more colorful your diet, the healthier you are eating.
  • South Central WI is particularly blessed with a diverse community of small farms and food producers. Try our milk, ice cream, cheeses, meats, fruits, vegetables, jams, and other seasonal produce.

Since I have to work at the apple store I will not be able to attend but I would love to hear what you all think of the event!
