Heritage Conservancy Celebrates Bucks County Food with 'From Farm to Table' Fundraiser

Bucks County charity raises funds and awareness with a celebration of local foods

PRLog - June 17, 2011 - DOYLESTOWN, Pa. -- Doylestown, PA -- Heritage Conservancy, a Doylestown, PA based conservation organization has announced its Third Annual 'From Farm to Table' fundraiser.  In previous years, this event has taken place in July.  This year's event will take place on August 6, 2011 at Lindsay Farm in Warminster, PA.  For more than 50 years, Heritage Conservancy has been preserving the natural and historic heritage of Bucks County.  Now, the group hopes to marry the common goals of land preservation and sustainable agriculture.

"Have you heard the terms food mile, community supported agriculture, or farm to table but don't know what they mean?  Do you want to be green when shopping for groceries but don't know where to start?  These are some of the concepts you can learn about when you come to Heritage Conservancy's From Farm to Table.  This event offers the unique opportunity for guests to enjoy delicious local food while also enjoying the beauty of a preserved property," said Robin Folkerts, Vice President Development for Heritage Conservancy.

Heritage Conservancy has re-enlisted the help of acclaimed chefs from two Bucks County eateries. Luke Smithson of Jamie Hollander Gourmet and Earl's Bucks County chefs Chris Tavares and David Zuckerman have generously donated their talents and will prepare a gourmet meal with foods grown in and around Bucks County.  

Hors d'oeuvres, followed by a buffet-style meal, will be served in a rustic outdoor setting at the Lindsay Farm.  There will also be silent and live auctions. Tickets are $65 per person and all proceeds benefit Heritage Conservancy. Reserve your tickets by July 5th to take advantage of a $10 discount.
