Twelve chefs are converging on the Brandmore Farm in Rollinsford this Sunday for a Farm-a-Q, a local food BBQ open to the public.
Portsmouth chef and restaurateur, Evan Mallett, organizes the event. He says all of the food is grown locally.
We try to unite chefs, farmers and consumers around heirloom vegetables, heritage breed animals, and now endangered fisheries, too.
The event raises funds for two organizations: Slow Food Seacoast and Heirloom Harvest. The groups also hold an annual high-end multi-course barn dinner.
But Mallett says for the local food system to become sustainable, it needs to be accessible to everyone, and supported by everyone.
We have what we think is a good idea, but we need to bring it to a wider audience.
This year’s Farm-a-Q costs $25 for adults, less for students and children. It runs from 12-4 on Sunday at the Brandmore Farm in Rollinsford.
