Taste the Garden State on Sept. 8

Hello my fellow New Jerseyians, New Jerseyites, New Jersey gangstas, Slow Food Northern NJ and Buy Fresh Buy Local, along with The Foodshed Alliance, NOFA NJ, and Whole Foods, are organizing the 2nd Annual Farm and Food Open House on Sept. 8. (Don't forget to zip on over the mighty Hudson to New York City the next day for Farm Aid 2007.)

The event will involve a day of tours and tastings at 13 local Northwest NJ farms, culminating in a cook-out dinner—at Donaldson Farms in Hackettstown, an hour from the Holland Tunnel—highlighting food grown and raised by local farmers.

Farm-tour tickets are $10 for an adult and $5 for a child under 13, while cookout-dinner tickets are $25 for an adult and $10 for a child under 13. All tickets are available via Brown Paper Tickets. Visit Slow Food Northern NJ's Web site for details. ::Slow Food NNJ
