Experience the Harvest, Gourmet Style

Feast of Fields is a four hour wandering gourmet harvest festival that highlights the connections between farmers and chefs, field and table, and between farm folks and city folks. With a wine glass and linen napkin in hand, guests stroll across a farmers field, traveling from tent to tent (sometimes through the barn, past the tractor or around the chicken coup) listening to live music, and tasting gourmet creations from BC top chefs, farmers, fishers, ranchers, food artisans, vintners, brewers, distillers and other beverage producers.

Behind the Scenes: Chefs & Makers

Feast of Fields in part fulfills FarmFolk CityFolk’s mission to cultivate a local, sustainable food system by building a market for local food through celebration. Since its inception, Feast of Fields has only featured local producers, artisans, winemakers, brewers and distillers, and only those chefs that have existing relationships with local farmers and producers. For those businesses Feast of Fields offers a great way to highlight their commitment to local, sustainable food and promote their business to customers that truly love and support the local food movement. As well, for the host farm Feast of Fields provides a boost by introducing  guests to their products and their farm. 

Within the menu of this website you will find “Chefs & Makers”. This section provides a search engine that will help you find businesses that support FarmFolk CityFolk. We encourage you to support their business and book a table at their restaurant, find their products, or visit their farm or tasting room. Through feastoffields.com you can experience Feast of Fields all year round.
