|Phoenix Farms owner Nathan Heath and Olive and June chef/owner Shawn Cirkiel|
In a panel discussion with Barley Swine’s Bryce Gilmore, Dai Due’s Jesse Griffiths, Trace’s forager Valerie Broussard and Olive and June’s Shawn Cirkiel, Heath talked about the shortage of people with the knowledge needed to support our local food system, namely small-scale farmers. As part of the home farm movement, the new event space will have classes that range from how to plant crops to chicken care to canning, and a commercial kitchen will offer dinners as well.
And since the event was at Olive and June, there were mini meatballs, arancini and other Italian treats. Check out some pics of the food and the restaurant and farm peeps below.
