ASHLAND – For a few hours on Saturday, Sept. 9, a block of downtown Ashland will be closed off for the 2nd annual Farm to Table event.
A five-course, locally sourced meal will be served at PNC Park on Orange Street. The dinner is a fundraiser for Ashland Main Street.
“Ashland is surrounded by beautiful farms, tended by beautiful farmers. What better way to enjoy their harvest, as well as support their hard work, than by having a dinner created from their bounty, in our beautiful downtown,” said Ashland Main Street Director Sandra Tunnell.
Ashland University is taking over cooking duties this year from Pump House Ministries, and will provide the wait staff, tables and linens.
Local Roots, Mitchell’s Orchards, Homestead Springs, Brot Bread and Eva’s Treats are donating food for the event. Rick Ewing, vice president of facilities management for AU, is donating a lamb from his farm for the event.
The bar will open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $50 for the event. Ticket sales close Monday so organizers know how much food to prepare for the event.
To order tickets, call Tunnell at Ashland Main Street at 419-281-4584.
The Life section is supported by Brethren Care Village in Ashland.
