Feast of Fields at Golden Ears Cheese

One of my favourite food events of the year is Feast of Fields which always takes place in September at a different farm around the lower mainland. This past Sunday, this tasty event was held in an open field at Golden Ears Cheeseworks where over 1,000 people joined in eating, drinking and mingling festivities!

My Feast of Fields favourites are shown above. This was my third visit to Feast of Fields, last year was the 2nd visit and my first visit was Feast of Fields at UBC Farm in 2009. This wonderful annual event is organized by Farm Folk City Folk and is their annual fundraiser.

I am already looking forward to attending next year’s event scheduled for September 8, 2013.
