Description

Vermilion and Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture proudly present an outdoor summertime celebration of local foods and farmers on the scenic grounds of historic Woodlawn, also the home to Arcadia farms. Join us Sunday, June 19 for the first dinner party yet served on this beautiful parcel of land. Vermilion Chef Tony Chittum has planned a multi-course summer supper from the very best of the best seasonal ingredients (see full menu below). The land beneath your feet will play a starring role in the meal, supplying Tony and his team with a cache of fresh produce from summer beets to spring onions and more.

We can hardly wait to open up the farm to one and all and fully intend to take it over the top with heady indulgences. The evening will begin with cocktails, canapés and music in garden followed by a tour of the Woodlawn grounds – property once owned by George Washington and also home to the stunning Frank Lloyd Wright designed Pope-Leighey House. At dusk, we’ll ring the bell and invite you to take a seat at one long table set atop the a grassy hill in the center of the farm – for a night of sumptuous food and wine.
