EDIBLE JERSEY ANNOUNCES 2013 LOCAL HEROES
Six Food and Farming Leaders Across the Garden State Recognized
As we wait for Mother Nature to don her party dress, we’ll get the party started by celebrating our Local Heroes of 2013. These heroes, as selected by you, the Edible Community, represent what we cherish most in creating and sustaining a vibrant local food community.
Celebrated in our Spring issue, you will learn about the passions that drive these purveyors and stewards: a long-time love for natural foods, home-grown artisans, a pioneering oyster farmer, a community-centric restaurateur, a rejuvenated craft brewer, and what’s at the heart of a Land Trust.
We congratulate the honorees and thank them for their vision, dedication and inspiration:
Food Shop- Basil Bandwagon
Beverage Artisan: River Horse Brewing Company
Farm/Farmer: Matthew Gregg of Forty North Oyster Farms
Food Artisan: First Field
Chef/Restaurant: Marilyn Schlossbach of Langosta Lounge
Nonprofit: Hunterdon Land Trust
Hopefully your edible adventures will afford you the opportunity to cross paths with these heroes and we encourage you to take note of all the heroes throughout Edible Jersey!
