I am so excited to add another local food event to my calendar for the summer. Earlier this week I reserved our tickets for Dinner on the Farm, June 5 at Crandall Garden Farme in Ramsey, MN. Â Dinner on the Farm began holding summer events in 2009 with the mission of creatingÂ “unique events designed to celebrate and support local farms.” Each dinner is held on a local farm with a menu designed by an area chef that featuring ingredients from the farm. Â How cool is that, right?
Here’s the details for the June 5 event:
Where is it?: Crandall Garden Farme, in Ramsey MN located 34 miles northwest of St. Paul. Â Crandall Garden Farme is a local permaculture demonstration site that provides custom growing for local restaurants and caterers.
Dinner and what else?: Tours of the farm will be available during the event to describe how the permaculture system creates the unique ecology at Crandall. Â The meal includes pairings with locally brewed beverages and dessert. Â Yum! Afterwards, plan for a bonfire and music by Jack Klatt and the Cat Swingers.
Who’s Cookin’?: Executive chef and Curry Diva Heather Jansz will be designing the menu including seasonal produce from the garden. Â The website hints of lamb making an appearance as well!
How to go?: Tickets are $50 and available by reservation only. Â Reservations can be made by emailingÂ firstname.lastname@example.org Â I have 4 tickets reserved and am looking for some others to join us for what promises to be a very exciting event! Send me a comment if you’re interested in tagging along.
