Pero Family Farms, Boynton, Fla: Hosts Chefs Meeting

Pero Family Farms played host to the American Culinary Federation (ACF) April meeting. Located in Boynton Beach, Florida, Pero Family Farms (known for their peppers) was the perfect place for such an event.

The ACF general business meeting was followed by a talk from Pero's Chief Sales Officer: Nick Bergstrom. He showed the audience a very informative film about the history of Pero Family Farms. He said Pero had several farms up the Eastern part of the United States and growing schedules moved with the seasons.

Jan Costa was next, and got up to talk about his company: Florida Fresh Meats Company. His business started in 2008, under the lable Florida Glatt Kosher meats, as the only kosher slaughterhouse in Florida. He has now branched out and sells grass-fed meat products.

After all the talking and listening, by the audience, everyone was hungry. The focus of the dishes were either peppers, Florida grass-fed beef, or some combination of the two. There were even carved pepper sculptures.
