Peak Harvest Farm Dinner
We're bringing the farm to the city! Join us for a special Peak Harvest Farm Dinner recognizing Rick Bayless & Deann Groen Bayless of Frontera Farmer Foundation for their impact on local sustainable & organic farmers, many of whom have also been part of our farmer training programs! Galleria Marchetti will transform into an urban farm oasis filled with food using locally sourced & organic ingredients, a fresh pie stand, a farm store, polaroid pics with adorable farm animals, live bluegrass from the No Name Stringband and special guests including chefs, farmers, and emcee, Monica Eng of WBEZ & Chewing.
This year’s menu features biodynamic produce from Angelic Organics farm, pasture & organically raised poultry from All Grass Farms, fresh pie from Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits, and cheese from Local Foods. Beverages will be plentiful, including beer & signature cocktails from New Holland Brewing & Artisan Spirits and hyper local vodka from CH Distillery, distilled in West Loop using Illinois-grown grains! Candid Wines - a local distributor of organic, biodynamic & sustainable wines - will provide offerings from Girasole Vineyards, an organic winery for more than six decades. Take home goodies from Acure Organics, Angelic Organics, Johnny's Selected Seeds, RXBAR, Think Jerky and more! Floral & herb design by epoch.floral. Proceeds benefit the non-profit Angelic Organics Learning Center and our programs that build sustainable local food & farm systems.
