Fourth annual Food-Farm-Wine-Film Festival this weekend in Paonia (plus jazz at Leroux Creek)

By Dave Buchanan

The fourth annual Food-Farm-Wine-Film Festival runs Friday through Sunday in and around Paonia.

Sponsored by Slow Food Western Slope and the Town of Paonia, the event highlights the farms and wineries throughout the North Fork Valley with special dinners, tastings and limited showings of select films at the Paradise Theater in Paonia.

The films include Bitter Seeds (Friday), about the impact of genetic engineering in our food system; The Greenhorns (Saturday) about America's young farmers and their dedication to growing food with vision and respect for the earth; and Sunday, the documentary Ingredients, about farmers and chefs who are creating a truly sustainable food system.

You can learn about the farms and their locations here.

One-, two- and three-day tickets (starting at $35) still are available. Proceeds go to Teens on Farms, a program that works to place willing youths on farms and ranches.

For a complete agenda, tickets and other information, visit the Slow Food Western Slope site here.

Also this weekend, Leroux Creek Vineyards is hosting a night of wine and jazz Saturday featuring Mike Gwinn and the North Fork Flyers.

Doors open at 6 p.m, music at 6:30. Wine by the glass. Tickets are $15 in advance (call 872-4746), $20 at the door. Information: 527-3424.

This festival always makes me feel like home, last time I had such a great time. Unfortunately this year I can’t make it, because it coincides with my holiday in Tahquitz, I can’t wait to play some golf with my friends.
