Martha’s Vineyard Food & Wine Festival
Perfection fence has been part of numerous projects on Martha’s Vineyard so naturally, we were delighted to participate in the Tenth Annual Martha’s Vineyard Food & Wine Festival as a Cask Sponsor October 19-22, 2017.
It was four days and three nights of unique-to-the-Island experiences. This flagship festival stays rooted in the Island’s rich tradition of farming and fishing, inviting you to meet local culinary talent, and the farmers, fishermen, oyster producers, and artisans they work with—adding guest chefs and vintners from around the world for a unique to the island celebration.
The Festival is comprised of culinary events spread over the 4-day period, inviting you to design your own Island itinerary and experiences based on your interests and taste. As a Cask sponsor, we were invited to attend the Fresh Off the Farm event, at the Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society, which promotes the pursuit of agriculture, horticulture, land conservation, youth activities, mechanic and domestic arts. The society encourages the raising and improving of plant and animal stock and the sale of Island-grown produce and flowers at local farmers’ markets. It was a delicious, community gathering featuring Island farms and chefs with sustainable, family-run vineyards. Music was provided by Good Night Louise, an island favorite. It was as local and fresh as it gets!
Proceeds of Fresh Off the Farm and other weekend events benefit Island Grown Schools and the Agricultural Society’s Farmer Program. These farm-to-school programs seek to raise a new generation of Vineyarders who are connected to local farms and empowered to make healthy eating choices by growing food for themselves, their families and their community.
We were delighted to be a part of this great weekend and look forward to the 2018 event. We truly felt immersed in the culture and can understand why so many of our clients call this island their home.
