Fairfield Green Food Guide Live on News Ch. 8

The 2010 Guide to a Locally Sourced Thanksgiving Feast is now available here.
This morning I had the great pleasure of  appearing on News Channel 8’s Good Morning Connecticut with Chris Velardi. I’m so happy for the opportunity to spread the word about the wonderful food being grown and made by our farmers and help you find it! Please find a list and links to what I talked about with Chris on this morning’s show below. To watch the Ch. 8 video from this morning, click here.
