Home Newsroom 211. Smart Farm to Host Second Annual Farm to Table Dinner

Don’t forget to get your tickets to Smart Farm of Barrington’s second annual “Farm to Table Dinner” with the mission of connecting farm, food and family.  Tickets last year sold out in advance for an evening that promises to be a delicious way to learn from chefs who share a passion for local food.

Smart Farm’s first annual dinner was a huge success with about 100 guests enjoying dinner prepared with locally grown ingredients.  The event takes place in the old Quaker Oats barn on the grounds of Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, where Smart Farm also has a community garden.

Their upcoming event will take place on Saturday, September 12th, starting with cocktails and appetizers at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 6:30.  The menu will feature dishes created by the following chefs representing Smart Farm’s mission:

*  Chef Zak Dolezal of Dukes Alehouse in Crystal Lake

*  Chef Michael Formichella of the New Anvil Club in East Dundee

Jessica Grelle, also known as “Mama Jess”

Jamie Wagener of The Blissful Kitchen

Alina Yaccino of Pure Organics Juicery

The event will also feature live music by Ashley Behrendt to round out an evening of “Good food and good music for a good cause.”  Smart Farm founder Kathy Gabelman says funds raised will support efforts to inspire people of all ages to appreciate our agricultural heritage, organic gardening, the slow food movement and best practices for greener living.

Created in 2008, the Smart Farm is an educational garden initiative in Barrington. Volunteers tend to their community gardens on the Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital grounds and at Ron Beese Park and give 100% of their produce to local food pantries.  Adults, children, and students learn about their agricultural heritage, organic gardening, the slow food movement, and best practices for living “green,” sustainable lives.
