Greystone Farm to host fifth annual quarry party

Slow Food members Julie and Tim Walker of Greystone Farm invite SFKT members (and other faithful customers of their eggs, chickens, turkeys, sausage and beef) to their wonderful farm on August 2 for a potluck and swimming party. Please see the invitation details below.

This is one of our favorite Slow Food events. We are always treated to wonderful food, camaraderie, a beautiful quarry to swim in and an all-around great way to spend a summer Sunday. Last but not least, it's always a pleasure to experience a farm from which so many wonderful local products emanate!

Please join us!
