The first ever "Field to Fork" event was a success, despite rainy weather (submitted photo).

First ” Field to Fork” held at Embrun farm

On Saturday, September 10, la Bonne Bouffe Catering in partnership with the Eastern Ontario Agri-Food Network hosted the first Field to Fork gourmet dinner. The location was kept secret until the last minute.

The participants were transported by bus to Dagenais et Tournesol farm in Embrun. Despite the inclement weather, 118 people gathered to enjoy a meal featuring local food and drinks produced in Prescott and Russell, and the surrounding area.

The 2017 edition of the Field to Fork gourmet feast will again be held in September. Tickets will be on pre-sale as of November 2016.
