Bringing together local chefs and local farmers in support of a good cause

On Sunday October 6, residents and visitors to Halton will have the opportunity to discover the real taste of Halton at Harvest Halton, the Farm to Chef Experience at Country Heritage Park in Milton.

This inaugural culinary event brings together Halton’s prominent chefs, amazing local farmers and other local agri-tourism businesses to celebrate the harvest.foodl

Chefs have been paired with farmers and will create signature dishes using farm fresh ingredients, which can be sampled for a few “sample tokens”.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Halton Food for Thought.

The event, which runs from 1 until 5 p.m., will also showcase local beverage producers, artists, including glass blowers, and retailers. Local musicians will be on hand to add to the celebration.food 2
