GREENVILLE, Del. (September 14, 2017) — Delaware Nature Society’s Annual Farm to Fork event is set to take place this Saturday, September 16 at Coverdale Farm Preserve in Greenville, Del. In 2016, nearly 200 guests joined us for the annual fundraising dinner and for the third year in row, this event has sold out.
6pm-7pm: Pre-Dinner Happy Hour
7pm-9pm: Three-Course Seated Dinner
This year’s theme for Farm to Fork, Flyway in the Byway, honors our land management and conservation practices which help contribute to biodiversity and habitats that support wildlife in the Red Clay Valley. Many wonderful species of birds have been spotted at Coverdale Farm, including Long-eared Owls, Red-tailed Hawks, and American Kestrels. Coverdale Farm Preserve is one of several preserves on which Delaware Nature Society is conducting a three-year bird banding study to evaluate land management practices on bird migration and habitat.
Guests will arrive at twilight, enjoy a pre-dinner happy hour overlooking the pasture, and conjoin for a family-style, three-course seated dinner. Our menu will feature delectables grown right on the farm, creatively prepared by Stefan Kandabarow, executive chef of The Whip Tavern, and paired with an assortment of craft brewed Dogfish Head beer. Dessert will follow with gourmet cupcakes by Dia Doce and coffee by The Perfect Cup Café.
A post event press release with photos from the evening will follow.
