The event this past weekend at Angel City Brewery – just a few blocks away from the Los Angeles Produce Market in the Arts District – included a variety of avocado-inspired dishes served by local food trucks and chefs to complement the brewery’s “Avocado Ale”.
Eco Farms said the beer remains one of Angel City Brewery’s most popular, made with California-grown avocados, honey, cilantro, peppers and lime juice.
The company said there was also avocado-inspired art including jewelry, paintings, posters, apparel and more.
In the release, Eco Farms said it represented the state’s avocado farmers and the industry as a whole at the event, engaging attendees about the growing, harvesting, ripening and distribution of avocados, along with information on uses and recipes.
“People are very enthusiastic about Avocados and it was very enjoyable for our team to participate in a really great event like this. We gave out Avocado Slicers, recipe booklets, and sold Ripe Avocados picked in our farms just a couple days prior to the festival.” Eco Farms sales director Gahl Crane said in the release.
“Eco Farms is happy to partner with businesses like Angel City brewery who are dedicated to producing delicious products while also working hard to raise money to help those in need.
Eco Farms donated all funds from their Avocado sales to a local nonprofit that seeks to help people to grow their own fruits and vegetables though the construction of community gardens in Southern California.
“Giving kids and families the resources and knowledge to grow their own food sets them up for a life-long love of fresh fruit and vegetables and the Ron Finely project is dedicated to that cause,” Crane said.
Eco Farms is a year-round avocado grower, packer, importer and shipper, with headquarters in Temecula, California, operations in Peru, Mexico, Chile, and sales offices in Long Beach, California and Pharr, Texas.
