September 2015 Posted in Arts, Culture & History, Community

Rooted in Food LLC and Executive Chef Joel Autry are sponsoring the second annual Harvest Dinner at GeerCrest Farm in Salem.

GeerCrest was the home of the maternal grandparents of Silverton favorite son Homer Davenport, the polictical cartoonist who went on to fame in the newspaper world of William Randolph Hearst.

Where else can you enjoy great food at one of Oregon’s oldest farms?

The second annual Harvest Dinner at GeerCrest Farm is Sunday, Sept. 12, 3 p.m. at the farm.

The farm holds the title of being the longest continually owned by one family in Oregon. It is used primarily as a teaching farm for schools in the area.

After a tour of the farm, guests will be invited to indulge in a four-course taste extravaganza using almost exclusively local ingredients with a wine pairing during each course.

The dinner will be prepared by executive chef Joel Autry, who is a sponsor of the event along with Rooted in Food LLC.

Entertainment both before and after dinner will be provided by Ty Boland, lead singer of Silverton’s Deadwood Standing.

Tickets are $75 per person. Guests must be 21 or over to attend. Tickets can be purchased online at www.rootedinfood.org. All proceeds from the dinner will go directly to support GeerCrest Farm and its educational programs.
