On Wednesday, August 24th at the Martin Farmers Market, farmers delivered their products to Sodexo Chefs to cater food for the Soybean Festival Homegrown Harvest Sponsor Appreciation Dinner on Saturday, August 27th. This connection was made possible by Samantha Goyret, Northwest Tennessee Entrepreneur Center (NTEC) Program Administrator, and LFN Coordinator.
“NTEC and the Local Food Network foster connections and collaborations to encourage agri-business growth in our communities. As more consumers become interested in locally sourced foods and sustainable farming, we hope these connections will become more frequent.”
Farmers Richard Turnbow, Richard Gallagher from Hidden Hill CSA, David Finch, Nathan Grasfeder, Jill Magness and Richard Duncan and Richard Gibson harvested their produce for the event sponsored by the City of Martin.
