We are excited to be part of the upcoming Save Your Bacon weekend at Polyface Farms in Swoope, VA September 7-8. We'll be serving our gluten, grain and dairy free Cinnamon Raisin Pecan and Chocolate Ginger Macadamia muffins for breakfast both days at this Paleo oriented weekend with boxes of our baking mixes for sale at P3: Paleo, Polyface...Porkfest! held in the Stonewall Jackson Hotel Sunday, September 8th.
This event is a fundraiser for the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, a non-profit who's mission is to defend the rights and broaden the freedom of family farms and protecting consumer access to raw milk and nutrient dense foods. Plenty of documentaries and news articles have chronicled the challenges of being a smaller farm faced with increasing regulation, raids and overhead. We are glad to find an organization that gives a voice to farmers, artisans, consumers, co-ops & buying clubs. As such, we will be donating 10% of our sales from this weekend to this worthy organization.
Nourishe Co-Founder Nicole Heckman will be at the weekend event which will include a tour of Polyface Farms with its well known owner farmer Joel Salatin, as well as lectures by Robb Wolf, author of The Paleo Solution and http://nourishedkitchen.com blogger Jenny McGruther. Of course, there will also be lots of great food, a bacon cook-off, a wine tasting and a special screen of the new pro-farmer documentary, American Meat.
We can't wait to be part of what is sure to be a fun and informative weekend! We're sure Nicole will be posting all kinds of pictures and updates as the weekend progresses.
