Its Heirloom Harvest Week in Providence, Boston and Portsmouth (October 12-18)! Chefs Collaborative asked all the chefs participating in the RAFT Grow-out project to put one or more items on their menu this week that highlight and honor locally grown vegetables from the project. Various factors, including the incredibly hard year farmers had, have made project vegetables scarce in some areas. However, all the project chefs have scared up a RAFT Grow-Out veggie or two, and they are doing some amazingly delicious things with them.
If you live nearby, check out their creative creations before the week is up!

To kick off the week, Chefs Collaborative and Slow Food Seacoast hosted a barn dinner at Berry Hill Farm in Stratham, NH. All the chefs used as many RAFT Grow-out project vegetables as possible from as many participating farmers as they could. A success!
