The annual Field to Family Harvest Dinner will take place this Saturday at Anna’s Cutting Garden in Oxford, Iowa (1259 Rohret Road SW).

According to Field to Family’s Board President Brandi Janssen, this year’s Harvest Dinner — Presented by the New Pioneer Co-op — will be bigger than ever. Offering an on-farm hog roast with food prepared by local chefs like Trumpet Blossom’s Katy Meyer and Dave Burt of the (now-closed) Red Avocado, the dinner will be a rare treat for those eager to sample some of the best, freshest food currently available in Iowa.

“The Harvest Dinner has always been the capstone event of the Field to Family Festival, which is now in its 12th year,” Janssen said. “In the early days, it was a collaboration between chefs and farmers to create a local meal to share among community members and supporters. The dinner has been held at a downtown hotel location the last several years, but this year we decided to change it a bit and have it at Anna’s Cutting Garden in Oxford,” Janssen said.

Local musicians Marc Janssen and Dustin Busch will also be on hand at the dinner performing their brand of authentic, old-time blues.
