Our first ever Farm to Field Dinner is this Saturday, and Chef Brad has been all over southern Ohio taking inventory of local meats and produce. Between our garden, our neighbors' gardens and nearby friendly farms, he's got an almost official menu to share. "Almost" because like any local field dinner event (they're quite the rage these days!), anything can change at a moments notice. But if you're anything like us, just the though of Brad's delicious ideas gets our appetite going!
