We were thrilled to support the 2nd Annual Farm to City Dinner!
Three extraordinary non-profits offered an unforgettable dining experience.
Drawing from the rich and diverse abundance of regional farm, fresh foods, the Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education, the local chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local, and Healthy World Café hosted the second annual Farm to City Dinner.
Friends and families gathered together to embrace, celebrate and ensure ongoing access to York County’s rich agricultural heritage and healthy foods.
Tables topped with the finest fall harvest from local farms, wineries and pastures was the backdrop to this historic event. Music and laughter filled the city as the community gathered to enjoy the feast. -Farm to City Dinner
Our granola was the star of the Farm to City Peach Crisp dessert and due to popular demand we convinced the chef to hand over the recipe so we could share it with all of you.
