Wow! If we didn’t already have plans, I would definitely be taking my mom to this farm lunch. Mom, if you’re reading, sorry we didn’t find out about this sooner – maybe next year!
The price is flexible and can either include transportation for $155, or if you drive yourself to the farm in Homestead, the lunch is $30.
I found out about the event through Slow Food Miami, but it is not a Slow Food sponsored event.

The Food and Garden Festival at Fairchild is around the corner on April 24 and 25. This year they’ve invited local bloggers to come to the festival and blog about the experience. I was invited!
The Festival is full of events focusing on local and fresh food. They have lectures, demos, and a plant sale.
Admission: Free to Fairchild members and children 5 and under. Non-members: $20 for adults, $15 for seniors 65 and up, and $10 for children ages 6 – 17.
I’m perusing the schedule now, and it looks great. Here are some standouts to me:

Need even more motivation to pre-purchase your tickets to the Food and Wine Festival? They’ve just announced that when you purchase your tickets to the South Beach Diet’s Fun and Fit as a Family ($20), they will donate to the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti Relief and Recovery Efforts. Here’s what they sent me:
“In an effort to help victims of the earthquake in Haiti, the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine has announced that it will donate 100% of the gross advance tickets sales from the South Beach Diet presents Fun and Fit as a Family event at Jungle Island to the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti Relief and Recovery Efforts. Bring your family out for two days of interactive food labs, culinary demonstrations, food sampling, fitness activities and much more at South Beach Diet presents Fun and Fit as a Family and support those in need in Haiti at the same time. Click here to help!”
