Oakwood Farms (OF) was invited by the Alabama Sustainable Agriculture Network (ASAN) to participate in the first Graze: Huntsville event that took place Sunday, July 14, 2019, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. The event paired local chefs with a local farm to develop a unique culinary experience for attendees.
The Oakwood Farms team was paired with Chef Walter Thames of What’s for Supper Catering to offer nearly 400 hundred attendees a palette-pleasing vegetarian menu.
The event has experienced success over the past five years in the Birmingham area, which inspired the organization to bring the celebration of sustainability in farming to Huntsville. “We want to continue to do more events like this with partners in the community,” remarked Mrs. Corzetta Underwood, assistant manager at Oakwood Farms.
Another good pairing is Oakwood Farms and ASAN. Oakwood Farms promotes faithful stewardship of God’s land and that includes refraining from using harsh chemicals that might poison the soil. ASAN is a grassroots network of farmers and agriculture-related organizations, all committed to promoting sustainable agriculture in Alabama.
As the reputation of Oakwood Farms continues to stretch across Northern Alabama, there will be increased involvement in ventures such as this in the region and state. The public will not have to wait for long, because if you missed Graze: Huntsville you have an opportunity to support Oakwood Farms at Graze: Birmingham, scheduled to take place this September. The ASAN website https://asanonline.org/ or Facebook page have more information about the organization and the event.
