Heifer International's Urban Farm Fest

Have you EVER seen a cuter goat playing checkers in your life? Last week was SO busy with my Thirty-ONEderful birthday, getting back to work after a week off and the Heifer International Urban Farm Fest! This was the first annual event for this farm festival and it was So. Much. Fun. 

If you haven't heard of Heifer International, they are a non-profit that works to end hunger and poverty by caring for the Earth and providing livestock and agriculture resources to families in need all over the world.  Think: Giving milk goats to families in need in Uganda so they can use the milk to feed their family, sell extra for income, and lift themselves out of poverty. It's the teach a man to fish philosophy. 

Not only does Heifer work in over 25 countries in the world, but they also work here in Arkansas! Heifer USA is helping bring small-scale farmers together to create co-ops. To help raise awareness and funds for work in the USA, Heifer did it's first Urban Farm Fest event last week! 


It's fun for everyone! The event was tailored to young professionals here in Little Rock. 


All food was prepared by local food trucks as well. There were burgers, Asian dumplings, ice cream, and a whole lot of pork. Don't worry, I hate this entire burger. 


Heifer even created its own Gin with a local distillery. The gin was infused with local botanicals that were grown at the Heifer Urban Farm this spring. 


I had to work the event, but lots of friends came out to volunteer and support! 



There were lots of people, fun, food, and fun to be had. 


Cheers to a great first annual Urban Farm Fest! If you want to learn more, check it out here

  12. What a cool event! When I worked at a veterinary clinic in high school, as a Christmas gift to our boss we donated a goat in his honor through Heifer International and he absolutely loved it!
