Chamber hosting First Ever Field to Fork Dinner at The Farms at Two Egg
A brand-new event will take place in Two Egg to connect local taste and a unique dining experience to showcase what Jackson County has to offer.
Locally Grown JaCo: “A Field to Fork Experience” is sure to be an enchanting evening of locally-sourced fine dining under the stars. The event will feature several food stations with ingredients sourced from Jackson County farms. Dinner will be prepared by local Chef Leigh Reddoch Beaulieu and her team from Farmhouse Chick.
The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. on November 17th. Hosted by the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, President Tiffany Garling said the intention is to turn this inaugural event into an annual event.
Tickets are $75 each and proceeds will help maintain the Farm City Ed Jowers Memorial Scholarship — a scholarship to benefit Jackson County youth who are involved in agriculture industries throughout the county. There are also sponsorship opportunities available.
“The idea was conceived about six months ago in order to create another community event that highlights the agricultural assets of our county and the idea of connectivity,” Garling said, “to bring together the community, the agricultural industry, the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, and its members.
While the menu has not yet been finalized or released, Garling said the culinary dishes will be prepared with items sourced from local farms and will present seasonally inspired dishes with vegetables like peas and squash. She said the menu will also include beer samples made with local satsumas.
Participating businesses are Martin's Harvest, Green Gate Olive Grove, The Lazy Acres Family Farm, Spanish Trail Farms, Southern Craft Creamery, Southern Fields Brewing, The Tilted Gypsy, The Farms at Two Egg, and KB Farms.
“We wanted to utilize as many Jackson County businesses as possible when it came to the chefs, food, and other supplies to put on the event in an effort to show that you can truly have it all here,” Garling said.
Ticket sales will launch October 24th. Up to 100 people will be able to attend and are encouraged to dress for the outdoor atmosphere.
