April Slow Food Event

We are excited to announce our next Slow Food event which will take
place on Sunday, April 6. We are going to visit Liza Plaster’s Ripshin
Goat Dairy which is located between Blowing Rock and Lenoir. The day
will include a potluck picnic lunch, a tour of the goat dairy, the
opportunity to taste and purchase the first batch of chevre for the
season, a tour of a fish farm that is gearing up to make cavier in the
next few years, and finally a concert by a the La Catrina Quartet, a Latino
string quartet, in a 100-year-old chapel. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?

You can check out the La Catrina Quartet at their website (click here). Margie
Mansure and Amy Galloway are going to provide drinks, cups, utensils,
napkins, and plates. Please bring a potluck dish to share that will be
easy to transport. We are going to meet at the Watauga Co-Op Extension
to carpool and take vans. You are welcome to join us for all these
events or to meet up with us at any point. If you have questions you
