You are invited to Wakeman Town Farm’s third annual Farm-to-Table fund-raiser on Saturday, September 13 at Wakeman Town Farm in Westport. Held on the farm grounds and under a festive tent draped with twinkling lights, Harvest Fest will be a magical evening, featuring plentiful hors d ‘oeuvres and entrees, including local meats, artisanal cheeses, and seasonal produce generously contributed by local farmers and prepared by notable local chefs. Enjoy wine, beer, Prosecco and signature cocktails…and rocking to a live band!
Come on down to the farm for an afternoon of old-fashioned fun for all ages, open to the whole community. Horse around with the sheep, goats, chickens and ducks; tour the organic vegetable gardens; compete in the pie-eating contest, water balloon-toss, sack races, and lawn games, and enjoy face painting and farm crafts.
Farm dinners are all the rage, and with good reason. They provide guests with a unique opportunity to feast on multi-course meals right at the source, outdoors, with a community of likeminded people. Many dinners include a farm tour led by the farmer, a great way to learn the story of the family growing your food that evening. Grab a few friends and set a date to spend a magical evening together at a local farm. Tickets go fast so please reserve your seats early.
The morning begins with a special visit to Wakeman Town Farm by Lauren Scheuer, illustrator for American Girl and the author of her newly published novel, Once Upon a Flock. Lauren will treat guests to a free chicken keeping workshop and will be available to sign copies of her novel which will be for sale throughout the day.
