FARM TO TABLE premiered in September 2011 as a new fund raising event for the Everhart Museum. This event focuses on a celebration of fall harvest in the Northeast Pennsylvania by consuming foods grown and produced in a 100-mile radius. By eating locally we support the regional economy and the agricultural heritage of our community.
Co-chairs Leah Kane and Joyce Lomma worked with museum staff and volunteers to create an amazing event for this 4th year of FARM TO TABLE. Doug & Craig Pallman of Summit Harvest sourced produce from local growers and collaborated with Chef Cliff Daniels of Epicurean Gourmet. No-Bull Ranch provided the meats. The resulting menu featured the best in-season ingredients available served during a family-style sit-down dinner.
New to 2014’s FARM TO TABLE event was a country-style arcade area with games of chance, as well as a marketplace of homemade preserves, pickles, etc. created from locally harvested fruits and vegetables. Local artist Jennifer Brandon painted en plein air and the finished painting was auctioned at the end of the night. Another new feature was a cut pumpkin patch provided by Hurlow Rowlands of Knitney Lines. Music was provided by the band Mace in Dickson who will be playing a mix of southern and classic rock.
