Enjoy fresh ingredients perfectly prepared by several top local chefs at the Hunterdon Land Trust’s annual Farm to Table dinner at the Beaver Brook Country Club on Sunday, September 27, 2015.
Chefs Matt McPherson of Matt’s Red Rooster Grill, Ed Coss of the Milford Oyster House and Julie Klein of the Lovin’ Oven are combining their culinary talents to create a memorable full-course dinner with ingredients provided by local farmers.
Participating farmers are: Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse, Comeback Farm, Fulper Family Farmstead, Griggstown Farm, Nine Acre Farm, Milford Farms, Phillips Farms, Purely Farm, Sandbrook Meadow Farm, Sweet Valley Farms and WoodsEdge Wools Farm.
Proceeds from the Farm to Table dinner benefit the Land Trust’s efforts to protect the places you love in the Hunterdon County area.
“The Farm to Table dinner is a great way to remember that delicious and nutritious fare is grown in our own backyards and how by buying local, we ensure our neighborhoods will remain scenic and productive,” said Patricia Ruby, executive director of the Hunterdon Land Trust. “We hope everyone will come out to connect with their local food and the land on which it has been cultivated.”
The evening begins with a cocktail hour and silent auction starting at 5 p.m.
The silent auction features an array of enticing gifts to bid on including: gift baskets from Stockton Fine Wines, Basil Bandwagon Natural Market, the HLT Farmers’ Market, and the Crayola Factory; a week’s stay at a vacation home in Cape Cod; a round of golf for four at the Beaver Brook Country Club; and gift certificates from Golden Pheasant Inn, The Clinton House, The Clean Plate Kitchen, Christie’s Artisan Bread and Bakery Shop and HealthQuest.
The Land Trust is also running a drawing in which two lucky winners will receive a $250 shopping spree at its Farmers’ Market. Tickets can be purchased at the Farmers’ Market through Sept. 27 or at the Farm to Table dinner. Winners will be announced the night of the dinner.
Farm to Table dinner tickets cost $125 per person and can be purchased securely online at www.hunterdonlandtrust.org or by calling Christine Dimas at the Land Trust offices at 908-237-4582.
