Harvest Dinner 2012!

The Harvest Dinner was another success! Although we were worried about the weather for most of the week, it turned out to be a wonderful evening.  Ralph and Amy Fideldy of Timbersweet Farm were the hosts and the farm looked wonderful.  Guests got to walk around the farm and ask Ralph and Amy questions.  Madelen and Dennis Schuemann donated homemade wine for sampling, and Boreal Brewers donated local beer and cider for sampling.  In fact, the brewers from Boreal served hard cider that they had made out of Fideldy's apples picked from the year before.  During social hour, students from the Itasca Orchestra and Strings Program played classical music.

After a brief word from Kristi Kane, Executive Director of ElderCircle, Ralph and Amy gave a brief history of Timbersweet Farm.  Renee Perrington of Wylde Thyme Catering (who catered the dinner) also said a few words about what they were serving and where they purchased the food from locally. For example, they served apple crisp for dessert with apples from Timberweet and garnished with maple syrup candies made from Timbersweet's maple syrup.

The weather was fabulous, the food was fantastic and everyone enjoyed good company!  We are excited to begin planning of next year's Harvest Dinner!
