July 29: Feast from the Field

On Saturday, July 29, 2017 the Feast from the Field will begin with a tour of the farm from 5:00-6:00 pm followed by dinner at Moriah Farm from 6:00-8:00 pm. This annual fundraiser benefits the Fauquier Education Farm.

The Farm exists at the intersection of agriculture education and social responsibility. The 501(c)3 Farm promotes agriculture and agriculture-related education through best method demonstrations, classroom instruction, on-farm workshops, and hands-on learning. The farm supports the community through contributions of fresh produce to local food banks and providing richly rewarding volunteer opportunities.

The Farm focuses on the beginning farmer, but welcomes audiences ranges from students to those already experienced with the skill. Interested participants of all ages and skill levels come to the farm to learn through hands-on demonstrations, seminars and to volunteer.

The Farm’s community involvement is very beneficial. In the 2016 growing season, the Fauquier Education Farm grew and donated well over 34,000 pounds of high quality, fresh produce to the Fauquier Food Bank, The Rappahannock Food Bank and The Fauquier Food Coalition.  The 2017 goal is 50,000 pounds!

Over 350 volunteers, many under the age of 16, traveled from as far away as Chesterfield, Buckingham, Caroline, and Augusta counties. Through the farm’s volunteer program, our next generation is not only learning agricultural best practices, but they are also learning how to give back to the community in which they live and play.

Many local businesses are partnering together to make this event possible and to raise funds for one of our important community partners.

**Our desire at this event is to serve local beef, pork and other products that we cannot grow down on the farm.  We also understand that a donation from local growers and producers can be costly to them, resulting in less profit to their families.  So, when you pick this sponsorship you will not only be helping to defray the cost of the dinner, but you will also be helping a local farm.

Email fauquieredfarm@gmail.com for details on sponsorship.

We hope to see you there!
