Join us to celebrate all the food producers on Salt Spring Island and the 10-year anniversary of our community abattoir on Saturday November 12 at Fulford Hall!
Tickets for the Abattoir Birthday Bash are now on sale at The Mercantile and at Foxglove for $75. Table reservations available for parties of 6.
Chef Brody Paine will be preparing a delicious local farm-to-table dinner with a choice of Turkey or Curry and, if someone in your party doesn’t eat meat, there's a vegetarian option. Already have plans for November 12? Why not buy a ticket for someone else or donate to the silent auction!
With ongoing support from the community, Salt Spring's abattoir has provided a service to farmers for the last ten years, but it’s not been easy! These days with staff shortages and inflation it’s a challenge to run a community food-based business but it’s more important than ever. The Covid pandemic brought home to a lot of people that we need to produce and process more of our food on island rather than being dependent on ferries; and increasingly people are becoming aware that local food production has a significant climate benefit.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
