Seasonal Eat & Meet 2016


Proceeds will benefit the community education, community gardens, farm internship, and
incubator farm programs of Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education.

What better way to spend a weekday evening than to gather with your friends, family, and co-workers to enjoy a delicious meal of seasonal local foods prepared by the chefs of John Wright Restaurant at 234 N. Front Street in Wrightsville!

And on Tuesday, August 23 from 6 pm to 8:30 pm, you can meet and mingle with the Horn Farm farmers and others who are passionate about supporting local farm businesses.  

There will be delicious seasonal foods prepared from produce grown at the Horn Farm and other local farms(all gluten free menu except for the pizzas cooked in the outside pizza ovens). Allegro Winery will host a wine tasting. Attendees can also win one of six great seasonally themed door prizes.

This event exemplifies Horn Farm’s mission of connecting local food to community, and community to local food.

Executive Director Alyson Earl said, ”Right now there is such an abundant variety of fresh foods right here in York County. Our Seasonal Eat & Meet gives us a chance to showcase how our farmers are meeting local food needs — making those farm to table connections, as well as raising money for popular community programs.”

Our farmers – Jeremy Kilgore of Kilgore Family Farm, Francie Delaney and Vince Hedger of The Art Farm, and Horn Farm’s interns Betsy Dorbian, Andrew Horn, Miranda Komisar- Gindling, Joshua Witchger, farmhand Tyler Miller, and Horn Farm Education Director Jonathan Darby – will be attending this event and are eager to talk about their experiences and goals.

Jonathan Darby, farmer and Horn Farm Center Education Director, explained, “We’re really honored to be doing the hard, on the ground work of growing a wide variety of produce, and are looking forward to breaking bread and sharing stories with our community.”
