Farm Folk City Folk (FFCF) has more news. This year’s Feast of Field’s coordinator has just been announced. Chef Dana Reinhardt, formerly of Cru Restaurant, has taken the helm to manage this culinary feast, and who better than a chef to work with food and beverage purveyors to produce a truly inspiring food experience.

Says Reinhardt, “I am thrilled to work with FFCF and this year’s Feast of Fields. Throughout my career I have been a true supporter of the local bounty we boast of in BC. Now I also get to work with many of the chefs that have helped to create BC cuisine.”

Krause Berry Farms is located in picturesque Langley and lovingly produces berries, vegetables, jams, jellies, syrups and gifts. The farm offers freshly picked berries and produce or the chance to work the land and pick your own. And no visit to the farm is complete without a stroll to “The Porch”, where fresh-made berry shortcakes, milkshakes and pies complete a “berry tasty” experience.

A gourmet wandering harvest festival – Feast of Fields is FarmFolkCityFolk’s annual fundraising event. With a wine glass and linen napkin in hand, you can taste the very best of BC from chefs, vintners, brewers, farmers, fishers, ranchers and food artisans from across the province – some think of it as a 35+ course meal with wine and beer! Feast of Fields highlights the connections between producer and chef, field and table, and farm folks and city folks. Feast of Fields is a gastronomic journey towards a sustainable, local food system.

Further details will be posted as participants are confirmed. Tickets go on sale June 1st so stay tuned for further event details.
