Local Meal in the Vineyard

Saturday night, we enjoyed the company of several friends of the farm as we celebrated summer with dinner in the vineyard.

Guests brought food, of course - mostly appetizers and desserts, which were all (of course) delicious. But as a result, the meal was almost entirely from the farm!

Starting from the top left: Beet Salad (Autumn), Gnocchi with basil pesto (Brian, with Autumn and myself rolling and shaping the dumplings), Roasted Goose (Susan), beet chips (from a local store called Yoder's) and Marinated Swiss Chard (me). Not pictured: Pear Wine (Dean).

It was a beautiful evening, and a wonderful chance to eat a local meal together as a community. This is how a meal should be - a gathering, a communion and a celebration, rolled into one.
