Richland County Farm to Plate dates set

Richland County Farm Bureau annouces the 2016 schedule of guest chefs for the Richland County Farm to Plate event series at the Shelby Farmers Market. Featured local chefs will prepare foods while sharing cooking tips and menu ideas to help maximize the use of seasonal, local foods. The program is provided at no cost to attendees.

Brought to the community by the Hazelgrove Farm Bureau Community Council, Richland County Farm Bureau, Shelby FFA, Shelby Foundation, Richland County Creating Healthy Communities and Richland Community Development Group. A host of partners, supporters and volunteers have joined together to provide this exciting program to link the growers of our local foods with local chefs and with us, the consumer. Cooking demonstrations, featuring items that can be found at the farmers market or through local sources, will occur on at least six occasions this summer. Taste testing, recipes and market money will be available. There will be healthy activities for the kids, too. This is a great opportunity to learn about and support our local food economy, and to be newly inspired to eat healthy and to eat fresh.
