Attended the Farm to Table dinner yesterday to benefit the Heritage Conservancy!
It was held at the Lindsay Farm in Warminster, PA, to allow people to enjoy the delicious local foods of Bucks County and to educate people on the importance of sustainable agriculture.
The event boasted a meal prepared by two great Bucks County chefs, David Zuckerman and Jamie Hollander. Jamie Hollander is owner of Jamie Hollander Gourmet Foods and Catering, and David Zuckerman, General Manager of Earl’s Bucks County since 2008, has recently re-designed the restaurant’s entire menu to emphasize local foods, even using vegetables from their own garden.
Light hors d’ouevres were served first and were scrumptious as well. In a time of increasing urban sprawl and development, it was interesting to read that Bucks County ranks 20 out of 3,000 counties in the US in terms for value of farm sales directly to the consumer.
Some of my favorites that were featured were Blue Moon Acres (organic baby greens) and Nonsuch Farms (beef). The food was great and the crowd that came bonded in the interest of sustainable agriculture!
