Chocolate Tasting Tour at Goodnow Farms Chocolate!

Come to a DELICIOUS chocolate tasting tour at Goodnow Farms Chocolate in Sudbury! Goodnow’s owners, Tom and Monica, will show us how they hand-craft award-winning chocolate using single-origin cacao beans sourced from Mexican and Central American farmers. Their direct sourcing ensures that farmers are fairly compensated and that all farming practices are sustainable.

Attendees are encouraged to taste the chocolate (as if you needed any arm twisting), and everyone will go home with a chocolate bar of your choice!

Tickets are just $10 for Co-op Owners, $15 for non-Owners. Space is limited to 15 people, so SIGN UP NOW BY CLICKING HERE: https://squareup.com/store/AssabetVillageCoop
