Let's share a meal...

with the people who grew your food!

Farmer Tribute Dinner invites the Farm Fresh Atlas producers to dine on a locally sourced meal in celebration of the harvest.  Community members attend and sponsor the farmers meal as a tribute to their hard work.

Each year, Farmshed members and the regional local food community invite Central Wisconsin Farm Fresh Atlas farmers to a complimentary meal as we celebrate the end of another growing season.

Community members are encouraged to join in the celebration by purchasing tickets to the dinner and sponsoring a farmer. In addition to the yummy food, a silent auction, music, and dancing round out the evening’s fun.

As we look forward to 2017 Farmer Tribute Dinner, please check out some of the details from the most recent Farmer Tribute Dinner.

2016 Farmer Tribute Dinner

The event was held in the Farmshed greenhouse. Amy Scheide of Great Expectation Catering crafted the 2016 harvest menu, featuring local meats and produce from the farmers in the Farm Fresh Atlas.  Desserts were provided by The Main Grain Bakery.

Music entertainment featured local bands Chaz’nGerry and the Red Tide! (https://soundcloud.com/user-130162005).
