CSA Dinner #1: Harry's Savoy Grill/ Harry's Seafood - July 11th

CSA: Community Supported Agriculture

CSA Dinner: A dinner held on our farm to thank our CSA members, and other loyal customers, serving homegrown food cooked by famous chefs from the area who use our ingredients in their restaurants. 
The dinners are buffet-style BYOB; $20/person for CSA members, and only $30/person for non-members. 

A CSA Dinner veteran, David Banks, is head chef at Harry's Savoy Grill in Wilmington on Naaman's Road, and also of Harry's Seafood on the Wilmington Riverfront. 

Here's David at our 2013 CSA dinner, cooking up a storm, right outside the barn!
