On Sunday, August 10th, we will be hosting a field trip to Willow Wisp Farm in northern Wayne County, followed by a gourmet dinner of local foods. Learn about the operation of an organic farm with owners Greg Swartz and Tannis Kowlachuk. Their farm sits in a lovely little valley, and the site of the dinner that will follow sits on a hill above the farm at the home of Audubon members, Andrea and Chuck Heyn.
The tour will begin at 4pm and the dinner will follow the tour. Space is limited to twelve participants, and reservations are required. Attendees will be asked to make a modest donation for the event. Carpool possibility from Honesdale.
“We are sponsoring this trip because of the growing interest in locally grown foods,” says Katharine Dodge, the trip coordinator. “Another reason is selfish. I wanted to get an inside look at the mechanics of a working organic farm, and see how the crops are propagated, timed, and rotated. I was thrilled that my friend Andrea offered to cater the meal as she is an excellent cook and enjoys a gorgeous view just above Willow Wisp!”

The reservation deadline is Friday, August 1st.
