George Weld and Evan Hanczor truly embody the farm-to-table movement through their enterprises: Goatfell Farm, Parish Hall, and Egg. This week on The Farm Report, Erin Fairbanks digs deeper into the connection between restaurants and farmers with George and Evan. Learn why Parish Hall operates seasonally and locally, and how that affects the consistency of the menu at the Williamsburg restaurant. Find out why George decided to start his own farm, and how visits to the farm remind the staff at Egg and Parish Hall about the sanctity of food. Hear George and Evan talk about sustainability in terms of the environment and business, and why it’s important to consider all elements of the waste stream in trying to create an efficient model of operation. Tune into this week’s episode of The Farm Report to learn how chefs and farmers cooperate! This program has been sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery. Thanks to EULA for today’s music.
