The Fourth Annual Tasty Tomato Festival has farm fresh food and fun

The Fourth Annual Tasty Tomato Festival was at Deep Rooted Farm, three miles east of Westby, on Sunday.

There was live music, a taco bar with locally sourced products, kids activities and local vendors.

Area tomato growers could submit their best crops for a tomato tasting competition.

The tasting was included with tickets, and the farm’s owner, Tiffany Cade, said the experience surprised some guests.

“It’s really interesting to have people go through the tasting and then really realize all the different flavors of the tomatoes. Some people think a tomato’s a tomato, but really: not so.”

Tickets for the Tasty Tomato Fest were $12 at the gate. Kids under 12 got in for free.
