A gourmet farm dinner on the grounds of beautiful Bloomsbury Farm would be a dream come true for connoisseurs of fresh food. Therefore, we’re making that dream a reality. Enjoying fresh sustainably grown food from local farms is a pleasure that deserves to be celebrated. Join us for “Feast from the Fields”, a unique culinary experience featuring delicious food from the farms of Middle Tennessee on October 6th. This farm to table dinner will be held at Bloomsbury Farm, one of the most picturesque farms in Tennessee. Surrounded by lush meadows and the wooded hills of Rutherford County, Bloomsbury Farm provides the perfect setting to relax and enjoy an abundant gourmet meal with wine pairings. James Beard Award nominee Chef Philip Krajeck of Rolf and Daughters Restaurant will creatively prepare a savory four course meal using only the best ingredients from such farms as Bear Creek Farm and Bloomsbury Farm. The menu of “Feast from the Fields” will showcase the intense appetizing flavor of the fresh food straight from local farms.
“Feast from the Fields” proceeds will benefit the Franklin Farmers Market and the Franklin Farmers Market Educational Foundation. The 501 c 3 organization focuses on educating the public about local agriculture and the significant role that it plays in the economy, environment, health issues and overall aesthetic values of communities. One of the main objectives of the foundation is to teach children about nutrition with an appreciation of food from seed to plate. In 2011, the Franklin Farmers Market Educational Foundation formed a partnership with the City of Franklin Parks to establish the Growing Kids Educational Garden. The free garden program gives children hands-on lessons about the good health values of fresh food along with a greater understanding of where food comes from.
“Feast from the Fields” farm dinner tickets are sold in advance at the Franklin Farmers Market or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are $250 per person and include cocktail hour and a four course meal with wine pairings.
