Yes, you read that right…this is the first post of several about the first annual Kentucky Green Living Fair that C & I attended last Saturday at the Barn At Redgate in Somerset, Kentucky.  Thanks to Jamie at Sustainable Kentucky along with the other sponsors: ClearChannel Media, eat., Good Foods Market & Café, JD Country Milk, Somerset Farmers Market, Story Magazine, Rough Draft Farmstead, Sweetgrass Granola, and Tim Farmer’s Country Kitchen, this was a remarkable first time event that brought together people interested in sustainable and clean living.  We loved it and had a great time! 

Today, I would like to thank those wonderful sponsors above along with others that gave items for the Kentucky Food Bloggers’ gift bags.  I will list them all below with several photos of the goodies.  It was great just to get free tickets by being a member so I was overwhelmed with the contents of the bag.  I also got my first media pass…

Who knew that being a blogger meant that you were media?  I sure didn’t, but it felt pretty good to wear that little badge.  I am not normally an extroverted person, so it took me a little while to warm up and strike up conversations with the different vendors, but I am so glad I did since all of them were full of personality and information.  I also got to hand out a few blog business cards for the first time.  I just might make a go of this yet!

Without further ado, here are some photos and links of the gifts that were given to us bloggers:

Watermelon mint tea from Rooibee Red Teas:

I also got a free baked item from Clementine’s Bake Shop.  Thanks to all of these wonderful vendors and if I left someone off, I apologize, but I have listed as many as I can remember.

We had to give back a little so C & I purchased a few t-shirts along with some delicious cheddar cheese from Heavenly Homestead. You can’t have too many tees, can you?

Please come on back next week for the next installment of the Kentucky Green Living Fair redux.  I have so many post ideas swirling in my head that it may take a while to get organized.  Can’t wait ‘til next year…March 29, 2014!
