A newly formed nonprofit collective is holding a farm dinner on Saturday, Aug. 17 designed to celebrate the Flathead Valley’s sustainable agriculture efforts.

Glacier FEAST (“Farmers and Eaters Advocating Sustainability Together”) is holding the dinner at Two Bear Farm outside Whitefish. Prepared by Chef Chis Dimaio of Three Forks Grille and Chef Tony Traina of Fork in the Road, the meal is set to be composed from sustainably grown Montana ingredients. The event kicks off with an optional Farm Tour at 5 p.m. followed by appetizers, drinks and dinner beginning at 5:45 p.m.

Spearheaded by a group of sustainable market growers and local food advocates, Glacier FEAST has formed with the intention of supporting the expansion of the Valley’s food growing economy into a thriving community-based system that is “values-based and enhances the community’s economic, nutritional, social and environmental health.”

Special guest and speaker Bob Quinn, Montana organic farming pioneer, scientist, entrepreneur, and author of the book “Grain By Grain,” will share his insights during the evening on what it takes to build a thriving community food system based on his efforts to do just that in his hometown of Big Sandy.

Dinner tickets are $75 per plate and can be purchased at: https://twobearfarm.com.

Glacier FEAST, a project of FarmHands Nourish, seeks to build awareness and help connect the dots in the system by bringing folks to the table from all parts of the local food system, including: producers, processors, distributors, consumers, and recycling/recovery.

The Glacier FEAST steering committee comprises folks from Lower Valley Farm, Raven Ridge Farm, Snow Country Gardens, The Wicked Good Farm, Two Bear Farm, The Good Seed Company, and FarmHands Nourish The Flathead.
