The farmers shut off their tractors and laid down their gloves for a night of appreciation at TRACE. Often behind the scenes, the farmers do not see what comes of their ingredients. Last week, the TRACE team thanked the local farmers and purveyors they partner with by feeding them fruits of their own labor. Ingredients representing Springdale Farm, Fruitful Hill Farm, Johnson’s Backyard Garden, Broken Arrow Ranch, Windy Hill, Legend Meats, Lightsey Farms, and Ellis Pecan Company provided a seasonal array of delicious bites. Let me just say, if I was a farmer, I would feel like a proud parent of those delicious ingredients.
The farmers bring the freshest ingredients to the table translating into the best possible food. By building these partnerships with local farmers and purveyors TRACE is strengthening our local food system and changing our food scene for the better.
Thank you farmers and TRACE!
