The Wilderness Center is pleased to announce its first farm-to-table dinner and fundraiser, Forest, Farm & Fork on Saturday, September 28, 2019, at Wholesome Valley Farms in Wilmot, Ohio.
This unique dining experience will bring nature lovers, food enthusiasts and farmers together to support our common goal of protecting our environment through sustainable agriculture, nature education, resource conservation and community engagement. Of course, the real emphasis will be on delicious, locally produced food and beverages! Please join us for this on-farm culinary exploration of the flavors of Ohio. Enjoy dinner in a beautifully restored 19th-century barn, just steps away from where your food was grown, while live jazz plays softly in the background. It’s a great opportunity to share a relaxing evening with friends and enjoy the pleasures of eating locally.
The evening’s creations will be prepared by elite chef Parker Bosley and the staff of Cleveland’s Fresh Fork Market. Chef Bosley is currently chef-in-residence for Fresh Fork Market where he works with local produce at the peak of freshness to craft unique dishes, packed with fresh ingredients and divine flavors. Parker’s New American Bistro was twice recognized by Gourmet Magazine as one of America’s 50 best.
Wholesome Valley Farm is located just around the corner from the Center, nestled in the rolling hills of northeast Ohio and is known for its sustainable, organic produce and pasture-raised livestock. Trevor Clatterbuck is the founder of Fresh Fork Market and owner of Wholesome Valley Farm. Clatterbuck sources from more than 90 local farms for a large selection of organic and sustainable produce, meats, cheeses and more.
We are proud to be collaborating with our neighboring farm not only to provide a marvelous evening of fresh and extraordinary cuisine, but also to demonstrate the common environmental principles that TWC shares with Wholesome Valley Farm and so many other Ohio food producers who strive to provide food and fiber for our community in an economically and environmentally sustainable manner.
