There's a lot to celebrate about local food!

About a month ago, I blogged about a series of events hosted here in the Triangle called "Farm to Fork" which was put on in part to honor one of the founders of the Slow Food Movement, Carlo Petrini, who was speaking at an event at NC State, but to also celebrate the many local farmers we have here in the Piedmont area and all over NC for that matter.

A picnic took place at the Chapel Hill Creamery which paired up noted local chefs with Piedmont Farmers and turned out some scrumptious delights but also reminded folks about the many local food options they have right in their counties...instead of buying produce and meats grown and packaged thousands of miles away.

There's a great article in the Independent this week that recaps the "Farm to Fork" celebration. Check it out here.

Sponsors of the events were Center for Environmental Farming Systems, Slow Food Triangle and SEEDS. These events also kicked off "Eat Local Triangle", a month-long celebration, during June, of local food and farms.
