Maryland’s farmers invite you to join them for a dinner event on Saturday, April 12, where you’ll enjoy a chef-prepared five-course meal, served within the historic walls of Serenity Farms’ beautifully restored tobacco barn and benefitting the Southern Maryland Food Bank.
The Seasons on the Farm dinner, sponsored by Maryland and Delaware farmers, will feature a Maryland-inspired menu highlighting ingredients from farms throughout Maryland and the region, as well as the farmers who produce them.
“This dinner offers a unique opportunity for area residents to enjoy a wonderful dinner, in a very unique setting, all while benefitting a great cause in the Southern Maryland Food Bank,” said Susanne Zilberfarb, with the Delaware Soybean Board. “Farmers in the region support this because we see the shared goal with the Food Bank in providing safe, nutritious and affordable food. We also welcome the opportunity to sit down with people from the community and talk about how farmers work to produce that food.”
The dinner will be held at Serenity Farm in Benedict at 6932 Serenity Farm Road, just east of Hughesville and west of the Patuxent River on 231. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will begin at 4:30 p.m., with dinner to follow from 5:30-7:30. Plates can be purchased for $75 or a table of six for $400, with all proceeds benefitting the Southern Maryland Food Bank.
