"Tom and I had a great time.  The weather was great.  Chet gave a good tour and has a lovely farm.  The food was wonderful and tasty.  The whole event was fabulous.  There was a demonstration on making a bouquet; she made it look so simple."  

"It was great to hear how we as a consumer can make a difference for the farmers.  By being aware of where the goods come from and selecting local produce and flowers, we can encourage local farmers to grow more.  The event was well planned and executed."
Jane & Tom

"We had a great time.  Ann and Steffani were very impressed with the dinner, the people and the friendliness of everyone.  

It was interesting to hear the Anderson story of how they started in vegetables, then to salad greens and finally to flowers.  His family was one of the first ones that started the farmers’ market and they still sell there.  Whole Foods was at the dinner and they are very instrumental in the livelihood of the farm."
