Door County Buy Local Food Mixer

The Door County Buy Local Agriculture sub-committee is holding a Local Food Mixer event on Wednesday, April 27, 4:30 – 6:30 pm at the Draft Haus (formerly The Reef), 901 Egg Harbor Road, Sturgeon Bay. The purpose of the event is to help connect producers, consumers, retailers and restaurateurs interested in locally produced agricultural products.

A short program will feature comments from a local grower, a local restaurateur and a local retailer on the advantages and obstacles to selling and using local foods, designed to stimulate discussion of the issues facing local producers and consumers. Following the program, the attendees will have opportunities to network and exchange information about their local businesses.

Representatives of local agriculture producers, chefs, restaurateurs, institutional users, consumers and supporters of sustainable, local agriculture are invited to attend, and attendees are asked to bring business cards and information about their farms and businesses to share.

Refreshments and appetizers will be served, along with a cash bar. A $5 donation is requested to defray costs.

The Buy Local Initiative will begin by encouraging networking opportunities between local businesses. A second priority will be educating the public about the economic value of keeping as many dollars as possible in Door County along with efforts to share information about what services and products are available through Door County enterprises. A third focus will be to encourage non-profit, civic organizations and governmental bodies to do as much business as practical with Door County firms.
