The evening starts at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 22 with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m. at the family-owned and operated dairy farm owned by the Knutsen family.
The gourmet meal will be prepared by Abbott’s Grill and Chef Instructor Tim Hunter and his students from The Culinary School at the Food Bank’s Milford Branch.
“It’s our first event, and we are looking forward to a success,” said Caroline Folz, Farm Bureau spokeswoman.
The menu will feature a full dinner, including locally raised meats and in-season produce exclusively from Kent County farmers and Farm Bureau members, including but not limited to T.A. Farms and Fifer Orchards. The evening also includes wine and beer from Kent County, namely Harvest Ridge Winery and Mispillion River Brewing Co.
Stephanie and Gregg Knutsen will be on hand for tours and to speak about their dairy operation.
