You’ve heard of farm-to-table food.
But have you heard of table-to-farm dinners?
For these dinners, you can walk or take a wagon ride to a picturesque farm field, where a meal awaits. Whether it’s a table long enough to seat a few hundred people or tables for 10, these dinners are served on the farm where much of the food was grown.
B&H Organic Produce in Caernarvon Township partnered with Chef Philip-Georges Davis a few years ago to make seasonal dinners at the farm, with produce grown there and other ingredients found nearby.
And the Field of Hope dinner is an annual fundraiser for locals with outstanding medical bills.
