Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows ushow each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.

Summer Saturdays on the Farm

From 9:30-10:30 on Saturdays, kids will love watching Farmer Corey feed or halter train our our adorable little Shetland sheep, our alpaca, AJ, and our feisty goats, Marshall and Chase. Check out the nesting boxes of our chickens to see if they’ve laid any multi-colored eggs, or visit with a floppy-eared rabbit. 

Feel free to stroll the gardens. You can chat with a knowledgeable master gardener between 11 and 1:00, or bring your coffee and hang out at our picnic tables for breakfast. When it’s time to leave, be sure to stop by our wonderful organic farm stand, open every Saturday from 10-2,  and pick up all the organic produce you need for a backyard BBQ!*

Wakeman Town Farm is a special place for families. It’s YOUR town farm, so come out and visit!
