Slow Food Northern NJ & Sustenance present a farm-to-table dinner in support of earth stewardship and food justice.
On Sunday July 19, 2009, from 4-7 PM the first in a series of Sustenance on the Farm Dinners will take place in the green field of Griggstown Quail Farm in Princeton, Southern Somerset County. Farmers George Rude and Matthew Sytsema will host and chef David C. Felton, former Executive Chef of The Pluckemin Inn will prepare a farm-to-table five-course dinner with a spectacular array of food sourced from Griggstown Quail Farm. This sustainable meal will include food from artisans within a small radius of the farm and organic/biodynamic wines will be paired with each course. Live music during the dinner by jazz duo tenor saxophonist Alex Stein and guitarist Chris Parks will enhance the evening.
The proceeds from this Sustenance on the Farm Dinner will support Slow Food Northern New Jersey s earth stewardship and food justice programs.
Griggstown Quail Farm is a beautiful example of sustainable farm management. Griggstown Quail Farm is 75 acres of free-range pheasants, quail, chickens, and poussins and when in season, ducks and turkeys. Griggstown Quail Farm supplies top NY and NJ restaurants and fine food shops. Products can also be found at local farm markets during spring, summer, and autumn months. Starting this year, Griggstown CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) offers families a weekly supply of naturally grown vegetables and herbs.
Sustenance dinners take place in farm fields, orchards, and historic sites. The farmer takes the 100 or more guests on a guided tour of the farm, and during dinner guests hear from the farmer, chef, winemaker, and food artisans about the connection between our palates, our plates, and our planet.
