Join Heirloominous Farm and Slow Food Champaign Urbana for a tapas-style party at Prairie Fruits Farm and Creamery on Thursday, August 28. The meal will feature cherry tomatoes, tomatilloes, melons, okra and basil grown by Heirloominous Farm's Shea Belahi. Live music and a tour of the farm are other features of the night. As with all events at Prairie Fruits Farm and Creamery, the evening is BYOB.
All proceeds will go to helping Heirloominous Farm go to Terra Madre 2014.
Slow Food International puts together Terra Madre as an international gathering of chefs, farmers, fishers, academics, artisans and more to exchange ideas and practices which strengthen the sustainable, local, and slow food movement every two years. Diversity and commitment to good, clean and fair food traditions are at the heart of Terra Madre.
