Field to Fork Raised $25,000 for Conservation in One Night!

Thank you to everyone who prepared the meal, attended, donated, participated, and sponsored our annual farm-to-table fundraiser for conservation. In its 8th year, the event has raised over $100,000 for farm and natural area protection, clean water, and wildlife habitat. And 2017 was the best year yet! We hope to see you next year on the Third Saturday in July!
