Calling all livestock farmers! Dig IN- A Taste of Indiana is looking to line up farmers who would be able to supply 100-300 pounds of meat for their August 28th event. Suppliers will be financially compensated for their contributions to the event. Dig IN celebrates food raised and prepared right here in Indiana. Last year the event, hosted at White River State Park in Indianapolis, was a huge success with over 3,000 people attending and nearly 20 chefs preparing the food. This year, again, they are looking to highlight meat raised right here in Indiana. Ticket sales will be capped at 5,000 people and hope to have over 30 chefs involved.
If you or a farmer you know is willing to supply meat for this event, we will require that every farm have a representative present on August 28th for the entire event. We want to make sure attendees have the chance to meet all the farmers and talk to them about how they are raising their animals. Prior to the event, we will come out to your farm to grab a few pictures of you and your farm. We will work directly with each of you to line up a time that is most convenient for you. These pictures will be used on signs at the event as well as shared with you for you to use on your promotional items.
If you are interested, contact Leah Beyer at Indiana Soybean 317.644.2862. Also, please fill out the participation form at this link (email link also found here): Farmer Participation Form
