COLFAX, IN, March 22nd, 2019 – This Little Piggy Stays Home at This Old Farm on Saturday May 18th to help support Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry!

At 3pm This Old Farm staff will demonstrate home food preparation techniques, and at 5pm dinner is served!
Though awareness of the seasonality of food has been lost by many Americans due to the advent of large distribution systems, it remains a fact of life for the many farmers who grow our food, and any business that emphasizes locally produced product. Thus, we invite you to join us, our farmers, and our artisans in celebrating the return of the growing season! By sharing a meal with many faces of local Indiana agriculture, we hope to increase your appreciation for the effort put into providing good food. All food will be provided by local Indiana farmers and artisans, and all proceeds go to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry to help provide high quality food to low income families.
Tickets are $60 for adults, $30 for children 12 and under, and include a complimentary drink at a cash bar, live music, a food demo, outdoor activities for the kids, a four-course local meal, and more! This Old Farm is located at 9572 W. Cr. 650 S. Colfax, IN 46035. Space is limited, so call us today at 765-324-2161 to reserve your tickets!
This Old Farm, Inc. is a complete food hub headed by Jessica Roosa to support the development of local, small-scale agriculture throughout Indiana and its neighboring states. This is done by aggregating, processing, and distributing farmer and artisan products, as well as providing consulting and education services to both farmers and consumers.
Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry is a non-profit started by Debra Treesh in 2011. Over 30% of Hoosiers regularly choose between paying bills, buying food, and buying medication. Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry makes this struggle easier, by funding the purchase of good food for these families. If a farmer or hunter chooses to donate livestock or game, Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry picks up the bill and a local hunger relief agency picks up the meat.
