Upcoming Events

In-Person Meetings are Back!

The EOAN is pleased to re-launch in person meetings of members, food-business operators, and stakeholders to learn, network, and socialize. COVID and staffing resources blocked us in 2020 and 2021, but 2022 is different.

Each meeting consists of a farm or business tour and presentation, a discussion around a popular EOAN subject, food and drink, and networking and socializing. COVID safety precautions will apply. 

    Our next meeting...

    Join us on Thursday, February 16th from 5p.m. to 7p.m. in Winchester, for a tour of the The Lofty Nest as well as some snacks from another member of ours, Simply Baked Catering and, as usual, some more networking opportunities! 

    We ask anyone who is interested in attending to please fill out this registration form. We hope to see you all there!
