Summer scheduling

A few events and dates you should keep in mind:

  • June 5 – Newman Farm’s “Inside Out” event should get special consideration. Sure, Myrtle’s a long-ass drive from Columbia, but little I did last year was as much fun as this. Taking in the hog-butchering is optional, the food, scenery and hospitality are not. Go.
  • June 12-13 – The Farm to Table Festival at Mizzou is assembling a real all-star cast including some guys named Cyr and Odette (hat tip Ryan)
  • Slow Food St. Louis is hosting their “Art of Food” benefit July 24 and “Lambstravaganza,” a members-first event of unknown timing (to me).

What am I missing?

  1. Scott, or anyone else of course, would you have a suggestion for where I could purchase a Berksire hog here in central MO. I would love to raise one for my own consumption, but am not sure where to locate one. I don’t recall seeing Berksihire’s at any sale barns I have visited. Any suggestions?
