New Documentary Spotlights Teamwork Between Local Chefs and Farmers

ClaggettfarmEat local, eat well, and support local farms.

This is the theme of an upcoming Maryland Public Television documentary called The Maryland Harvest that is scheduled to air on April 17 at 9 p.m., during the station's Chesapeake Bay Week.

The film follows a growing season and chronicles the partnerships being formed between farmers and chefs to provide consumers with fresh, local food throughout the year, according to the Maryland Department of Agriculture. For details, and a preview, click here.

Hosted by WYPR radio personality Al Spoler, the documentary features some of Maryland's top chefs, including Spike Gjerde of Woodberry Kitchen, David McCallum of the Tilghman Island Inn, Rob Plant of Blue Wind Gourmet, and Cindy Wolf of Charleston.

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is a big supporter of a campaign to urge people to "Buy Fresh, Buy Local."   CBF's Clagett Farm is a great example of sustainable, community-sponsored agriculture. To clearn more, click here.

I saw the documentary. It's good and I believe that this concerted effort will bear fruit in the future.
