Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation, Kent County Farm Bureau to host second annual “Kent County’s Bounty” Farm-to-Fork Dinner

Join the Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation and Kent County Farm Bureau on August 27, 2016 for an evening of fresh, local Kent County grown food and drink while supporting the Food Bank of Delaware.  The second annual Farm-To-Fork Dinner will take place on family owned and operated G&S Dairy Farm in Harrington, Delaware. Enjoy a gourmet meal prepared by Abbott’s Grill in Milford, DE as well as the Food Bank’s own culinary instructor Chef Tim and his culinary students.
 
Meet Delaware Farmers and learn what it takes to get food from their farm to your fork, while supporting an organization partnering with shelters, food closets and soup kitchens that served 915,000 visitors in 2015. There are 120,000 food insecure families in Delaware; the Kent County Farm Bureau is hoping to help significantly lessen that number this year!
 
The night will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a farm tour and will lead to hors d’oeuvers and a cocktail hour featuring local beer and wine near the milking parlor on the farm.  A full service dinner featuring Kent County locally raised meats & in-season produce will be served by Kent County Farmers and Farm Bureau Members. Farm owners, Gregg and Stephanie Knutsen, will be on hand for tours and to speak about their operation.
 
Cocktail Hour will begin promptly at 6 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7 p.m.  Tickets are now on sale only at www.delawarefarmbureau.eventbrite.com and cost $100 each. Net proceeds will go to the Food Bank.  Deadline for ticket sales is August 23, 2016.
