As a lead-in to Thursday’s films and perfectly aligned with the Wexner Center Field & Screen series, representatives from several local farms, including Wayward Seed Farm, will be in the café to speak with guests individually about the virtues and possibilities of community supported agriculture (CSA). Learn more about the simplicity of finding food raised close to home in a relaxed and conversational atmosphere.

Join us Thursday, February 25th at the Wexner Center. The farms will be available before the start of the evening’s film from 5-7PM. The event is open to everyone. Whether you’re a current member of the Wayward family, a CSA newcomer or just simply curious about local farming, please join us! (And bring your friends!)

Presented in collaboration with the Wexner Center for the Arts and Local Matters.

In just a few weeks we’re hosting a cooking class at the North Market as part of the Dispatch School of Cooking series. There are quite a few of you who will be thrilled at the subject matter: Adam is makin’ bacon. Below you’ll see a brief write up on the class. Be sure to sign up soon to save your seat. Space is very limited, just 20 seats!

Makin’ Bacon with Wayward Seed Farm

Thursday, February 18, 2010


In this Dispatch School of Cooking class, we’ll have the rare opportunity to learn from one of Central Ohio’s most talented farmers: Adam Welly of The Wayward Seed Farm. The farm is renowned for its rare heirloom and heritage vegetables, but it has also garnered a bit of a cult following among its CSA members with Adam’s bacon and other charcuterie. Don’t miss the rare opportunity to learn from Adam first-hand in this intimate setting—not to mention the treat of tasting an array of preserved and cured meats, served in surprising ways.

We’ll be serving jowl bacon wrapped dates, pork rillette with homemade sauerkraut and golden raisins, microgreens salad with Canadian Bacon and Fuji Apples, and a very special ice cream collaboration with Jeni Britton Bauer.

While you’re enjoying the good eats, Adam will demonstrate how to create your own pancetta and Canadian bacon at home.

The class is $50 (or any 3 classes for $125).
