Annual dinner to be rescheduled in 2021.
WEST BEND, Wis. [August 14, 2020] – For the health and safety of our attendees, farm host and volunteers, the Wisconsin Farm to Table committee has postponed the 2020 Farm to Table Dinner event until 2021. The 2021 date is yet to be determined. This year’s hosts, Roden Echo Valley, look forward to welcoming guests for this event on their farm sometime next year.
“Much of our dining event is focused on enhancing our guest’s experience with unique foods and flavors paired with learning about some of the farmers that helped produce the food they are about to enjoy that evening. Due to the precautions surrounding COVID-19, the experience we work so hard to provide would not be the same,” says Kari Blazei, Wisconsin Farm to Table Committee Chair.
Tickets purchased for the 2020 Wisconsin Farm to Table dinner will be refunded, or guests can choose to use the ticket to attend any future Wisconsin Farm to Table dinner event.
The Wisconsin Farm to Table organization is proud to bring an elegant dining experience for guests to enjoy while visiting a Wisconsin dairy farm. While the host farm members and the committee are disappointed in the cancellation of this year’s event, they are eagerly preparing for next year’s event with added features. This year’s event would have been the seventh annual event. The Farm to Table event features a Wisconsin cheese reception, live music, and farm tour. During the meal, local farmers are featured to share more about the food they helped provide for the evening’s meal. It allows an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the true meaning of farm to fork.
“We are looking forward to 2021 to bring an even greater dinner event for our guests to experience,” says Blazei.
Roden Echo Valley will be the host for the 2021 Farm to Table dinner event, located in West Bend, Wis. where they milk 700 cows on their multi-generational dairy farm. Their passion for agriculture runs deep and inspired the family to include agri-tourism on the farm under the entity, Roden Barnyard Adventures. Through unique events like Farm Camp, Sundae on the Farm, and hosting events such as birthday parties, Roden Barnyard Adventures allows both children and adults to explore and discover life on the farm through a variety of fun and safe activities.
For anyone that has purchased a ticket to this year’s event, they will have the option to have their ticket refunded or can use the ticket to attend any future Wisconsin Farm to Table dinner event. Please visit www.wifarmtotable.com for more details.
