Twilight in the Meadow: Benefit for Rutland Area Farm & Food Link

September 26, 2010 (All day)

Rutland Area Farm and Food Link (RAFFL) invites you to the area’s premier local food event—the second annual Twilight in the Meadow. Twilight is an elegant local-themed dinner set under a tent in the field at the Milky Way Organic Dairy Farm on Route 133 in Ira. Chef Sissy Hicks, former owner and chef of the historic Dorset Inn—and owner of Sissy’s Kitchen in Middletown Springs—will prepare a five-course meal comprised entirely of locally grown ingredients.

The dinner serves as a fundraiser for RAFFL, a non-profit organization which strives to strengthen and promote sustainability within the region’s food system. RAFFL works towards its goals by developing projects that connect farms to customers, expand access to locally grown food, support beginning farmers, and develop the Rutland area’s food system infrastructure.

Twilight in the Meadow will not only serve to support RAFFL’s projects, but will support RAFFL’s mission to connect people interested in local sustainable agriculture. The celebration provides the opportunity to connect with others in a festive setting on a beautiful farm. The event will include live music and a benefit auction hosted by auctioneer Lyman Foss.

Tickets are $100. Be sure to reserve your seat today—last year’s event sold out! For more information or to purchase your ticket please visit www.rutlandfarmandfood.org.
