Celebrating Local Food & Local Farms


We are currently taking applications for farmer, restaurant, and food artisan participation for the 2018 Farm to Fork Picnic. Please fill out the appropriate form if you wish to participate in the event this year.

Rewards Program

This year's Picnic Attendees have a chance to win one of three pairs of tickets for the 2019 Farm to Fork Picnic just by supporting the farms, restaurants, culinary artisans and beverage providers whose commitment to local and sustainable farming we celebrate.

Picnic attendees will enter their receipts, along with their contact information, at the Center for Environmental Farming Systems Information Booth near the main entrance. Attendees may submit just one receipt per vendor but are encouraged to submit receipts from as many different vendors as they patronize.

The farm to fork picnic would not be possible without the generous contributions of these farmers, restaurants, and artisans. Don't forget to show your support to them by seeking out ways to support them through your purchases all year round.
