Thread: Harvest Dinner time again.

    Default Harvest Dinner time again.

    Each year here the local growers and producers throw an annual Harvest
    Dinner.
    This will be the ninth year and will be held at the end of this
    month. It has become quite the thing to do and the food is
    spectacular. It's held at a local farm and is quite lovely.
    I've never been disappointed with the food or the turnout.


    Here's this years menu.

    It's such a good idea and it gives the area population real
    interaction with the people who produce their food.



    Anyone have anything similar in their area?

    What a great idea..... but I am sure the pictured menu dated 2006
    will be updated?

    Thanks for sharing!

    We have a lot of Hutterites around here and they host dinners and
    lunches for the public, but I haven't figured out how to find out about
    them in advance. I don't know if the local farmers do anything like
    this, but it's a great idea.

    Here in Virginia Beach, they did a week called Farm to Feast
    Restaurant Week. It was a week where maybe a doxzen different places
    put together a special 3-course menu like they do for rest. week, prix
    fixe $30, but these were special menus based on local produce and
    seafood and meats, with each menu noting the sources for most of the
    ingredients. This was done mid-summer so lots of tomatoes, corn, basil
    on the menus. Yum!

    We used to live down the road from the Princess Anne Farmers Market down
    by the courthouse. Is it still in business?

    My former part of Maryland being what it is, there are two day-long
    seafood festivals - one in St. Michael's and the other in Crisfield.
    The Crisfield event is famous for bringing out the politicians, who
    schmooze with each other and the voters and hope to collect the votes,
    but a great time is had by all.

    It sounds great. Is that in Washington state?

    Italy is famous for still having what are called sagra of this or festa of
    that. Some things get celebrated at the harvest time, like truffles, or
    this week I am going to a sagra of onions, others just fit into the area's
    social calendar like polenta which doesn't really have a season.

    It is, and there are several more single-day farmer's markets around
    town as well as all the stands down by pungo. My produce is about 90%
    local all summer. It's gotten harder this year since I've really made
    a commitment; for eaxmple, strawberry season here is so short, then
    the only option is grocery-store berries, so we switch to blues and
    blacks in season. We don't eat produce that's not from the farmer's
    market, CSA, or local famer's stands, other than a few things like
    bananas, grapes and onions.
