Heritage Conservancy Hosts 5th Annual Farm to Table Fundraiser
August 27th, 2013
Proceeds benefit farmland preservation in Bucks County
Heritage Conservancy held its fifth annual Farm to Table on Saturday, July 27th, at Lindsay Farm in Warminster, PA. Voted Bucks Happening’s “Best Foodie Event” for the past two years in a row, this highly anticipated fundraising dinner event hosted to a sell-out crowd. Nearly 200 of Bucks County’s truest foodies and conservation conscientious were in attendance. It was a beautiful summer evening complimented by a light breeze.
Creatively prepared by acclaimed chefs from Jamie Hollander Gourmet Foods and Earl’s Bucks County, guests were treated to an array of farm-fresh delicacies that pleased the palate. Hors d’oeuvres followed by a buffet-style dinner were served in a rustic and picturesque outdoor setting. While indulging in these delectables, guests had the opportunity to participate in silent and live auctions for a variety of exciting items provided by local artisans and vendors.
Farm to Table is aimed at providing a unique opportunity to connect people with nature. With the backdrop of Lindsay Farm’s lush rolling hills bordered by fields of cornstalks, this setting embodies the essence of why what Heritage Conservancy does matters. By inviting its supporters to visit one of its beautiful preserved properties, Heritage Conservancy connects people to its mission and the land on a deeper level through a delicious meal prepared with local ingredients found right in Bucks County.
“We’re in the business of making dreams come true,” said Jeff Marshall, President of Heritage Conservancy, as he addressed the Farm to Table attendees about the organization’s mission. “So dare to dream, and we will keep our promise of preserving our beautiful natural resources for a healthy, bright future.”
Jeff Marshall’s words stressed the importance of working together toward this mission. Everyone who participated in the Farm to Table dinner, whether through donating, volunteering or attending, showed that they care about protecting our land and historic heritage for generations to come!
