Tassinong Farms Food & Wine Open House ~
The day we’ve all been waiting for is here. The Tassinong Farms Food & Wine Open House is this weekend. The 21 and over community is invited to check out the new Wine Bar this Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4pm – 10pm. They will be offering a new beer, wine machines and free appetizers throughout the evenings.
Tassinong Farms is a local hydroponic farm, growing fresh produce 365 days a year. They specialize in leafy greens, herbs, micro-greens, and brassicas. “Head of Lettuce”, Kate Haverkampf, made it her mission to create a local, year-round, sustainable healthy food network for the community. As we all know, it’s challenging to grow anything at almost 9,000 feet, making access to fresh produce difficult.
As of May 2017 Tassinong Farms has four refurbished shipping containers or “Leafy Green Machines” operating that grow a variety of lettuces and brassicas. They provide their fresh greens to community members, restaurants, local food stores and bars within a 20 mile radius of their Crested Butte South farm location.
Be sure to stop by their Open House this weekend and check out their new Wine Bar. They are located at 241 Gillaspey Ave, #3 in Crested Butte South.
