Farm to Table 5

A light rain that fell at the annual Farm to Table dinner September 7 at Hi-Berry Farm just north of Port Elgin didn't dampen the spirits of the 100 guests in attendance.

Executive Chef Randy Felker returned for the fourth annual Farm to Table dinner at Hi-Berry Farm on Saturday, September 7, where 100 guests were treated to an elegant yet rustic affair filled with local foods. Proceeds from the evening will support the ball diamonds to be built at the much anticipated Lamont Sports Park. Felker, along with Sous-Chef Michael England, created a tantalizing meal which included a charcuterie board, appetizer, salad, entrée and dessert.

A shuttle service to and from the event aboard the S.S. Trolley allowed visitors to indulge in local wine and ales poured by Laura McInnes and Jeff Carver from the Wismer House. As the venue began to fill, friends and families mingled while enjoying a fully laden charcuterie board set out before the dinner began. The constant hum of elated chatter was accompanied by delightful tunes played by the Charlie Bell Quartet.
