Farm Potluck at Bitney Springs Farm – September 5th

bitney springs farm - cowBitney Springs Farm is a small family farm dedicated to growing wholesome foods for a healthier planet. Farmers Chris and Mark are passionate about treating the land and animals in a respectful way, providing quality food that is both nutritious and delicious.   Produce is grown using sustainable practices, with the effort of putting back into the soil what is taken out.  The happy animals are all pasture raised and supplemented with organic feed.  

The beautiful farm is available for hosting small events, with the option of using the food that comes right off the farm as part of your catering.  Join our hosts Chris Riccio and Mark Sheffer for this fifth Sierra Harvest potluck of the season.
