Enjoy an evening on a beautiful, sustainable farm, and help Community Crops grow!
Saturday, August 27, 2016, 5:00-8:30pm
Prairie Pines, 112th and Adams
The Feast on the Farm showcases the best of local foods, prepared by your favorite local chefs. As guests wander the farm, they enjoy a full dinner, while seeing where their food grows.
Meier’s Cork and Bottle will serve beverages to accompany the meal, including beer from Ploughshare, and the Midnight Wanderers will provide the musical entertainment.
Tours of Prairie Pines will be offered throughout the evening and Community Crops staff will be on hand to share details about the organization and the families it helps.
Margaret Davenport at the Daily Nebraskan wrote, “Feast on the Farm was incredible. Everyone I met was exceedingly passionate about his or her products or about supporting the local businesses and excited to share any and all information with me. I learned a lot about the food community, ate a ton of amazing food and got a free tree. It was possibly the best night of my life.” Read the full story here.
