Feast of Fields 2011 in Langleyby
Feast of Fields is coming to Krause Berry Farms in Langley in just a few weeks and tickets are currently on sale. I first heard of the Feast of Fields concept when I toured Fairburn Farm on Vancouver Island during a Cowichan Valley trip in 2009. The idea is to bring together “city folk” with “farm folk” in the middle of a farmer’s field to enjoy a communal meal that was prepared with fresh, local ingredients.
Feast of Fields events are hosted each year in three regions, the Okanagan (@OkanaganFeast), Metro Vancouver (@MVFeast), and on Vancouver Island (@VIFeastofFields). I was fortunate enough to visit Krause Berry Farms a few weeks ago during strawberry season and see where the tables would be setup for this year’s event.
Tickets for the September 11th event are $85 which includes contributions from over 60 of Vancouver’s finest restaurants, local vintners, breweries, spirits and more. Organizers say: “Feast of Fields is like a 40 course meal.” You can purchase tickest at all Choices Markets or online.
They have also arranged a shuttle from Choices Market on Cambie or Commercial (departing at 12:00pm and 12:15pm respectively) for $15. It will return from the farm at 5:15pm.
