Behind-the-Scenes: The Farm at LACF

July 30, 2014

Did you know we have a Farm that grows fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables that are used as ingredients for some of the amazing food you’ll taste at LACF?
We are not your average farm. Our LACF hosts explored the ins and outs of everything the Farm has to offer, eating their way through delicious samples of our fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Haley and Arthur met with Fairplex head horticulturalist Don Delano, who is responsible for cultivating his enormous garden full of unusual crops like squash and chocolate-infused mint. At the Fair, people will not only be able to view these plants, but also indulge in yummy treats with cooking demonstrations.
At the Farm Kitchen, head chef David Teig treated our hosts Trent and Kara to freshly baked flatbread grilled with farm-fresh vegetables picked onsite at the Farm. Topped with figs, arugula, cherry tomatoes, prosciutto and cheese, the hosts’ tastebuds were overwhelmed with the deliciousness of Chef Teig’s creation as they sank into foodie bliss.
Fortunately, it’s not just our hosts that have the opportunity to taste Farm Kitchen dishes. Everyone can try the flatbread at LACF.
We invite you to use all of your senses to soak in the full Farm experience. So look, smell and eat up! Don’t forget to add the Farm to your LACF bucket list!
