Air Jordan 23s Taste of agri
The first ever “Foire Gourmande” is set for Aug. 29 in Lefaivre, west of Hawkesbury, and in Montebello. The “festive” event will include tastings and culinary demonstrations.
Organizers say Foire Gourmande will facilitate further partnerships between the Air Jordan 23s Outaouais and Eastern Ontario, Jordan Retro 3 “with a view of Air Jordan 4s unity, reciprocity and Air Jordan 2011 development of new markets.”
Tasting coupons valid on both sides of the river will be sold on site.
“We’re confident that the gourmet pleasures which are universal and well represented in our regions will stimulate winning trade between us,” said Paulette Landry, county warden on the Quebec side of the river.
Not to be outdone, Conrad Lamadeleine, county warden on the Ontario side, called the Foire a “great culinary, artisanal gathering” between citizens and producers.
To cover the five eastern counties of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott and Russell, the network is in the formative stage. It’s a non profit partnership of mainly existing events and organizations in a bid to foster co ordination of development initiatives and promotion of the agri food sector.
Among the participants is Homestead Organics owner Tom Manley, who is also president of the advisory committee at Alfred Campus of the University of Guelph and key organizer of the annual Eco Farm Day in Cornwall.
Manley recently announced plans to develop an organic processing and distribution “cluster” in the tiny hamlet of Berwick. His existing Homestead Organics elevator and marketing business would serve as anchor for what Manley is calling “Organic Central.”
The network flagship event will be the annual Agri Tour of agricultural businesses in the five counties. Visitors will travel to as many Air Jordan 5s as 20 sites on the weekends of Sept. 11 12 and Sept. 18 19 to purchase fresh and processed products.
For the first time, Manley will include Homestead in Agri Tour.
Prior to the Foire and Agri Tour, the network is organizing a local product market this Saturday and Sunday as part of the annual St. Albert Curd Festival run out of the cheese factory in that village.
