Field Roast at Seattle VegFest 2009

If free vegetarian food appeals to you, VegFest Seattle (and Portland in September) is where you need to be... and this year was no exception. Whether your a veg head looking for the latest and greatest or a veg virgin, everyone has a blast. The energy is always positive, the conversations are always interesting and Stewart Rose, the Vegetarians of Washington guru and leader, is always waving his flag and giving away yummy new vegetarian products.
This year we decided to switch it up from years past and sample our brand new Classic Meatloaf and the lesser known quarter loaf products. (see blog below) They did not disappoint, the feedback we got was amazingly positive. How can you not like a simply made grainmeat with fresh celery, carrots, onions and the secret? Saturated fat in the form of Organic Palm Oil.
As well as sampling our products we set up a slideshow, which showed everyone just how simple it is to make the Meatloaf. Because there are so many people coming through the booth this year we setup a suggestion/story box. Everyone came through with thoughtful suggestions and hilarious stories! Here are a few of our favorites.
A quick shout out to Keith Tucker who's making a documentary on the intersection between the Green/Veg movements and Hip Hop culture, called Pursuit of a Green Planet, it's going to be real! Thanks for helping us with our veg video!
Thanks to everyone for making this years Vegfest a complete success! We also had a little Write it Down contest to see what Field Roast stories were out there, Congrats to Rena Pugh, Nathan Miles & Roger Aldridge; we thought what you shared was really fantastic! And we will contact you soon for a free Field Roast Meatloaf of your very own.
