King Arthur Flour and Killdeer Farm and Farm Stand have been partners for 10 years. Being just a stone's throw from one another in Norwich, VT makes it easy for the KAF bakers to stroll over on Friday afternoons and pick out the featured ingredients for their popular "Pizza Night" creations. During the growing season, you'll find Killdeer's fruits and veggies in the Cafe's vast selection of sweet and savory pastries and used in the baking classes. Scott Woolsey, Killdeer Farm Stand Manager and Partner, has even taught "Farm to Fork" classes at the Baking Education Center about the basics of cooking and eating fresh, local food. King Arthur Flour values Killdeer Farm's philosophy of organic and sustainable practices so much that they gladly subsidize CSA shares for their employees.
Norwich is worth a visit any time, but plan one around the King Arthur Flour Baking Conference featuring a Bakers' Harvest Fundraising Supper on Friday September 6th to benefit Hunger Free Vermont and featuring delicious tastings from Ariels, Simon Pierce, Vermont Butter and Cheese Creamery, Killdeer Farm, and more! Check out the Norwich Trail on DigInVT.com for suggestions of area attractions. Before you go, read up about the Norwich Farmers Market in a recent Seven Day's Bite Club article!
