10th Annual Farm Dinner Planned for You
Join us as we gather for the Good Earth Market & Organic Farm's 10th annual farm-to-table dinner — a major fundraiser for Delaware Botanic Gardens. Enjoy the evening in a beautiful open-air setting, sipping wine while dining in view of the fields where your food is grown.
New for This Year – America’s Native Spirit for Delaware’s Native Garden
Banks Wine and Spirits, one of DBG’s most loyal and generous supporters, is offering a new feature during this year’s Farm Dinner. Ted Banks will host a great Bourbon Tasting event featuring four single barrel bourbons including Basil Hayden, Maker’s Mark 46, Knob Creek and the Banks’ personally selected private Knob Creek barrel from Kentucky. Our Farm Dinner attendees can sample these great offerings as straight or mixed during the Cocktail Hour.
Come join us as we sip Bourbon for the Botanic!!
Hope to see you under the big tent!
Once again the dinner will be catered by Plate Catering of SoDel Concepts. Chef Ronnie Burkle, a member of the DBG's advisory council, has designed the menu to ensure a seasonal farm-fresh experience.
