How Much Do You Like Local Food?

A couple of weeks ago I told you about Lori Pillsbury and Tim Elliott. They own Mended Fences Farm and are renovating space on Carlton’s Main Street for the Farmers Plate and Pantry. There you will be able to buy a meal made with locally sourced food, purchase prepared dishes either from the cooler or the freezer, and take a class about something informative about food in this area.YVG

I also told you they are starting a Kickstarter Project. Today, with 12 days to go, they are not quite to 50% of their $10,000 goal.farmers plate and pantry

It’s time to step up…kick in some start-up money. There are prizes, from coffee and breakfast to a cooking class to reserving the whole restaurant for a group!

The Kickstarter Project can be found by clicking https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2094768736/farmers-plate-and-pantry/posts/737691?at=BAh7CDoMcG9zdF9pZGkDm0ELSSIIdWlkBjoGRVRpA9zWPkkiC2V4cGlyeQY7BlRJIhgyMDE0LTAzLTA0IDAyOjUyOjMyBjsGVA%3D%3D–23288aa2e81ca51aeaf729fa21530b94da7b7eea

About creationsbybg

Beth and Graham met online almost 20 years ago and married in 2007. Planning for retirement has included finding more time to play again and creativity is blooming. Now that we have moved to Oregon our time is split between exploring and creative endeavors. What fun! Following several years enmeshed in the local food movement in West Virginia and active involvement in the establishment and running of a year-round indoor local food market, visiting farms and telling consumers about them is a work of joy.
