Foodies and readers alike will be excited for this event with John and Sukey Jamison, purveyors of the Jamison Farm in Latrobe, PA. Part memoir, part cookbook, John and Sukey will join us to discuss their book and their journey starting their farm business. A Q&A and book signing will follow and light refreshments and appetizers will be served.
In 1985, Sukey and John started a farm business with 2 mortgages, 3 kids, and no job. They started raising lambs on grass, developed a mail order business, got discovered by many of the chefs who were fueling the Food Revolution, bought a USDA meat plant, and somehow educated their 3 kids - whom they hoped would support them in their golden years.
Sukey and John relate to how they doged bullets of under capitalization, learned how to farm sustainably, and made Jamison Farm Lamb a staple on the menus of the best restaurants in the country. Coyotes in the Field and Wolves at the Door includes photos and Sukey's own recipes.
Books are available to be purchased at our store, La Bonne Cuisinière.
Appetizers will be served along with a free wine tasting by Vinoski Winery.
