What a sensational night we had on January 6. The night actually started early as we began preparations at 2 p.m. at the church and finished up around 10 p.m.
I would like to thank Auburn Church of Christ for allowing us to use their church building for this event, and to Jane Henderson, member, who worked tirelessly from beginning til end with us that night.
The night started with those in attendance visiting around the different tables that were set up for the local farmers. At these tables each quest was given some information about the farmer and their product and invited to try a sample of their product.
The Weston A. Price Foundation contributed many brochures for free for this event. if you didn't get one and would like one, please let me know, and I can get that to you at food pickup time each month. Also, please join the WAPF. It's only $40 per year and they send out a nice quarterly journal of very interesting health topics.
After visiting the tables, we introduced each farmer/contributor, and they came up and told more about their farm and products. A few cooking tips were shared, and a documentary, "Farmeggedon" was shown. The night closed with a give-away of many door prizes donated by our farmers.
This was a huge success and we plan on doing this again either in 6 months or a year, at which time we are planning on securing a famous speaker for our event, such as Joel Salatin. If you have a suggestion, please let me know, and we'll try to contact them for our event.
You may click on the pictures below for a link to our farmers and contributors for this event. By the way, you can get most of the farmer's products on Auburn Food Club Pick Day once a month. Check out your sources. We are blessed here in the Auburn area. I receive many calls from surrounding towns looking for what we have. Please support them so that we can keep the good products coming!

(no website - here's why)
Over the holidays, Auburn Food Club members, David and Suzie Ballam visited Miller's Farm. The Millers were not home at the time so they just visited the cows.
