Taste of the Heartland
The Taste of the Heartland is a unique 2-part farm to table experience hosted by the Stettler Regional Board of Trade in conjunction with the County of Stettler happening August 10, 2019 on Stettler's historic Main Street. East Central Alberta is ripe with local produce and protein and both the Farm to Fork VIP Farm Bus Tour and the Taste of the Heartland Long Table Dinner will showcase the quality of these items and capitalize on their local availability. This full day event promotes bringing fresh local ingredients straight to the table whilst simultaneously providing consumers with a chance to immerse themselves in the agriculture behind those products . The morning starts off with Farm to Fork VIP Bus Tour departing in the early morning for tours to multiple local producers, lunch will be provided at one of the farms with the tour returning in the afternoon. Patrons will have a chance to change and relax before the Taste of the Heartland Long Table Dinner festivities commence at 5 pm. Dinner attendees will be treated to a 3 course meal, prepared by chefs who embrace the farm to table philosophy, which is paired with spirits crafted from local crops. This year, the festivities do not end when the meal does! The Main Street Dance starts at 9 pm with live entertainment and the festivities continue in to the night.
