Egg to Thanksgiving

The Upcountry

The Upcountry

Bring your family and your picnic with a blanket for a tour from Egg to Thanksgiving with Gail Cooley and her “Ark of Taste” rare endangered breed Narragansett Turkeys. The US Ark of Taste is a catalog of over 200 delicious foods in danger of extinction. By promoting and eating Ark products we help ensure they remain in production and on our plates. The Ark is an international catalog of foods that are threatened by industrial standardization, the regulations of large-scale distribution and environmental damage. In an effort to cultivate consumer demand—key to agricultural conservation—only the best tasting endangered foods make it onto the Ark. Although Patient Wait farms produces many Ark of Taste items, like Radiator Charlie's Mortgage Lifter Tomato, the Orange Oxheart Tomato, the Cherokee Purple Tomato and the Yellow-Meated Watermelon, the specialty of the tour will focus on the turkeys, the Jersey Buff and the Narragansett varieties.
