Each week on Wednesday we will be open for take out or you can eat inside at our community table. Water and Hot Tea will be served, as well as the weekly soup or stew. Our choice to only serve one menu item is rooted in sustainability. Did you know that on average 40 percent of our food is wasted in America? Our goal at The Organic Gypsy is to get as close to 1% waste as we can and keep our prices down for our customers; while not compromising on our mission to source all local AND organic ingredients.

DINNER ON THE FARM EVENT
KALAMAZOO, MI AUGUST 13, 2013 – The Organic Gypsy, food truck, caterer and purveyor of artisan organic products, has scheduled its inaugural Farm to Table event. The evening will feature an elegant multi-course farm dinner experience showcasing a seasonal menu using farm-fresh produce and meat hosted at the beautiful Eater’s Guild Farm in Bangor. The event will take place on Saturday September 7 at 5pm.
The evening will include a dinner created by Bridgett Blough, owner of The Organic Gypsy. Blough is also teaming up with Karla Richards, who has spent over twenty years working with Kalamazoo chefs and restaurants that focus on supporting area farmers and creating innovative foods. Richards has played an integral role in growing local businesses such as Water Street Coffee Joint, Food Dance, and Martini’s. Inspiration for the event stems from Blough’s passion for fostering community, conversation, and education about health through food.
“I envision a space that brings people together through the wonderful harvest of our local bounty; creating links between people, health, food and the face of food—our local farmers, ” says Blough.
The dinner will also feature complimentary sample pairings from Journeyman Distillery and the Livery. Journeyman Distillery is an Organic Spirits Distillery, located in the EK Warren historic featherbone factory, in Three Oaks, Michigan. Journeyman Distillery offers artisan spirits with a focus on whiskey. The Livery is located in the Arts District of downtown Benton Harbor, and features 12 taps of “Hand-Forged Microbrew”, 2 Real Ale taps, and an outdoor bier garden.
Angie Jackson, the Traveling Elixir Fixer, will be making signature cocktails with Journeyman Spirits. Each course will be paired with either a micrbrew or a spirit concoction and explanations on pairings will be provided for each course. Attendees will also enjoy the evening from inside the barn with live music performed in the rafters. Menu may be posted on the website as the event gets closer. Tickets are $100 and are available for purchase at http://organicdinneronthefarm.bpt.me
