Celebrate Local Food and Farming
There was much to do Tuesday, August 6, 2013 with demos on cheese-making, by Blockhouse goat farmer and cheesemaker Heather Squires, worm composting, (fun for kids), “Cuisine for Life” food preserving techniques, with Georgia Barnwell, spoken word poets who write about food and farming, and more.
Local photographer, Bea Schuler-Mojon, captured some candid moments of the Market goers plus our special visitors — baby angus & galloway cows, a prize winning duck, a ewe, a lamb and goat (who are best buddies) and a pair of rabbits.
These special furry and four-legged guests were there in recognition of the 100th anniversary of 4-H in Canada, and especially this area. They were very popular and provided many a photo moment.
The Farmers’ Market continues to look for ways to include a variety of activities, and outlets for complimentary activities to take place on Market days. Watch for updates or featured visitors on our facebook page.
A feast for the eyes and the stomach!
