Our next get together is Monday December 12th at 5pm
Join us for a special meeting just for restaurant chefs and farmers. Whether you have sold to restaurants for years or are interested in getting on the menu of some of the best farm-to-table restaurants in the region, come share your experiences and hear what works or what doesn't. Some things that might be helpful to bring are: seed catalogs, specific questions, business cards, and price lists.

Do chefs need a specific size for certain varieties?
What's the best availability/payment system?

None! (bring a dish and cash for bar drinks)
THIS IS A POTLUCK, so please bring a dish to share (estimated 10-25 people). We are giving Chef Chris a break from cooking this day, so he can participate! Place settings will be provided. We typically don't have a problem with food variety for these potlucks, but feel free to let me know the type of dish you are bringing. I am planning to bring some kind of chili.
Tea and coffee provided at no charge, compliment of our hosts Chris and Laura of Harvest Habersham. Adult beverages will be available for purchase, cash only please.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE COMING! Email, call, or text with your name and how many people you are bringing BY 7PM SATURDAY. The more the merrier, but they must be a farmer or chef.
This get together is ONLY OPEN TO FARMERS AND CHEFS. "Farmer" means you currently produce and sell meat, mushrooms, fruits and vegetables, honey, dairy, eggs, or grains. Contact Andrew if you want to join, but don't fit the description. Spouses of farmers welcome. Invite other farmers and chefs you know (as long as they RSVP). Call me if I need to figure out child care or any other questions. LET ME KNOW if want to know which chefs will be there, or have a chef you want me to contact!
See you there,
Georgia Mountains Farmers Network
