Guests will enjoy hors d'oeuvres and drinks featuring local ingredients prepared by Baby Cakes, The Clark Café, Gala Restaurant, Gramercy Bistro, Mezze Bistro + Bar, The Red Lion Inn, Wild Oats Market, Williams College and The Williams Inn.
Farmers and representatives of The Berry Patch, Black Queen Angus Farm, Cricket Creek Farm, East Mountain Farm, Elmartin Farm, Hidden Pasture Farm, Ioka Valley Farm, Mighty Food Farm, Peace Valley Farm, Square Roots Farm and Sweet Brook Farm will be present at the event to talk about their farms and products.
