Spend a Sunday evening on a farm, get your hands dirty by foraging for the evening meal, and support the local food movement.
On Sunday, August 2, Fraser Common Farm is hosting their third annual Come Forage long table feast with the award-winning Chef Whittaker of Forage restaurant in Vancouver.
Drinks will be poured, food will be sourced onsite and the celebration and appreciation of local produce will be in abundance.
Guests will enjoy a reception and complimentary beverage and live music. The evening will feature beer from Delta brewery Four Winds, wine from Lotusland vineyards in Abbotsford, cheeses from Farm House in Agassiz and locally raised pork from Laurica Farm in Aldergrove.
What makes this long table so unique is that guests are invited to assist Chef Whittaker in the foraging of items for the evening meal while touring the grounds.
“Chef Chris Whittaker has a real long-term relationship with our farm. He’s come out to help weed, orders our produce regularly and really takes his relationship with his producers seriously. It’s a real all around community effort,” says Stephanie Frigon, co-organizer of the event for the past three years.
The long table feast is a chance to sit down and enjoy a meal with local farmers who are passionate about the food and where it comes from.
Nestled in Aldergrove, Fraser Common Farm has been committed to providing social and educational experiences for more than 30 years. They are one of the pioneer organic farms in the Fraser Valley and have been owned cooperatively for almost 40 years. Through a unique balance of food production, habitat conservation, communal and individual housing, and a sincere desire for long-term sustainability, Frigon says it’s a social and community experiment, a work in progress, and a dream come true.
By attending this fundraising dinner, you are helping to continue the work and vision of the farm. Fraser Common Farm is also home to Glorious Organics Co-op, which is the farming business on the property.
