Can food bring city folk and farm folk closer together?  That’s the idea behind the annual Feast of Fields, a unique event held in the Lower Mainland and other locations.   Feast of Fields brings together chefs, winemakers and brewers, restaurateurs,  farmers and plain-old consumers and puts them all on a local farm for a day of eating, drinking and learning more about where real food comes from.

This year’s Feast of Fields will be on Sunday, Aug. 29, from 1-5pm at Wellbrook Winery on the Bremner Farm in Delta (You might recognize the Bremner name from its juices made from local blueberries and cranberries).  Armed with only a wine glass and a linen napkin, guests wander amid tents set up around the farm, sampling local produce, cheeses and meats, delicious prepared foods from local restaurants and artisan wines and beers.

The lineup for this year’s Feast of Fields is still being finalized but features some big name players in the British Columbia food and wine scene.  Restaurants attending include C, Coast and Nu, as well as Raincity Grill, Sanafir and dozens of others.  Among the  wineries present will be Summerhill Pyramid, Tinhorn Creek, Blasted Church and Dirty Laundry.  Breweries include Phillips, R&B and Red Truck.    With so many incredible participants, make sure you come hungry and thirsty.

Tickets to the event cost $85 are are sure to sell out fast.  This year’s theme is “A Taste of History” and highlighted are second generation producers that have been supplying BC’s chefs with fresh ingredients for decades.  This year’s host, Bremner Farm, is a great example.  Since 1950, the family farm has been producing berries and juices and has more recently turned its focus to fruit wines – from blueberry to apricot – made by their Wellbrook Winery.
