Local Bounty Farm to Table Dinner is around the corner

| September 8, 2016

COSHOCTON – The Farm to Table Dinner is more than just a yummy meal featuring fresh food from local farms.

“It’s a fundraiser,” said Kristie Henderson, Local Bounty manager. “When you purchase your ticket and come, you are 100 percent supporting those who are involved with this. Pretty much everyone is volunteers, even the chef.”

The annual Local Bounty Farm to Table Dinner will be held this year at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at Young Farms, 28222 TR 359 in Warsaw. Tickets are $50 for Local Bounty members and $75 for non-members.

The meal will be cooked by Chef Bob McKenna and feature appetizers, a main meal and dessert with food provided by Young Farms, Keene Creek Farm, Circle the Sun Farm, Strawberry Hill Farm and Epic Delights Bakery.  The evening also will include wine from Rainbow Hills and a brewery also will be represented at the event.

“For the first time ever we will have a brewery since they seem to be popping up everywhere,” Henderson said. “Homestead Brewery out of downtown Newark will be coming down.”

Attendees also will be able to purchase a handmade drink local mug from Hillbippie Clay by adding an extra $15 to their ticket price.

Tickets can be purchased at Local Bounty, which is open from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. For more information, visit their Facebook page, call 740-622-1400 or e-mail [email protected].

“Funds raised will help with operating costs at Local Bounty and go right back to helping the vendors and the farmers,” Henderson said.

This is Local Bounty’s third farm to table dinner and she is honored to be part of it.

“Marissa Mullett had always done these and this is my first time doing one,” Henderson said. “They are amazing to go to and I feel honored to be a part of them. It’s pretty amazing to be in the barn surrounded by great people, beautiful scenery and celebrate farmers.”
