Written by WBTA STAFF on October 3, 2018
Join Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) for a “Meat” the Farmer event at the Hole in the Wall Restaurant, in Perry, NY on October 22nd at 6:30 pm. The evening includes an opening reception charcuterie board, and five course food and wine pairing. Each course will feature a different meat product thoughtfully prepared by chef Travis Barlow, and paired with wines from the Finger Lakes. The cost to attend is $85/person (includes tax and gratuity). Please RSVP to the Hole in the Wall restaurant by calling (585) 237-3003 to reserve your seat. This second year event is an opportunity for great food, fun and to learn more about buying local meat to fill your freezer! Before the meal, CCE staff will provide an overview of MeatSuite.com, a free online directory of regional livestock farms selling meat in bulk quantities, and answer any questions about buying meat products locally. Throughout the evening guests will have the opportunity to talk to farmers who raise livestock and sell local meat products in western New York.
MeatSuite, started in 2012, is designed to increase freezer trade sales of local meat by connecting farms with consumers. Farms can create profiles featuring contact information, prices, photographs, descriptions of products, livestock raising practices, and more. Consumers visit the site to search for farms that match their buying preferences. There are over 50 farms in Western New York participating on the site.
This event is partially sponsored by Cooperative Extension Associations of Wyoming County. MeatSuite is a project of Cornell Cooperative Extension, funded in part by the New York Farm Viability Institute.
