As posted in Litchfield.bz - 01-31-16, The first-ever Litchfield Hills Farmers Forum was held at Wamogo Regional High School on Saturday. More than 100 attendees, most of them farmers from northwest Connecticut, came to learn more about issues facing farmers and producers.
The event was hosted by The Farmer’s Table, a program of the non-profit Partners for Sustainable Healthy Communities. For the past five years the annual Farmer’s Table dinners have been held throughout northwest Connecticut to raise funds to support regional farmers. Local producers began to identify multiple areas of concern and topics of interest. Saturday’s event was a chance for area farmers and producers to attend breakout sessions specifically targeted to them.
