September 14th: Farm to Table Dinner – A Rice Sagra

Blue Moon Acres hosts
Farm to Table Dinner with Chef Max Hansen to Benefit T.A.S.K.  A Rice Sagra
Sunday September 14th, 4pm-9pm

In Italy, a Sagra is a village festival centered around the harvest of a local and seasonal crop. The festivities feature an array of dishes prepared with the edible star of the day.  Join us, Blue Moon Acres Farm, for our very own “Sagra Del Riso” featuring dishes made with certified organic rice we grow right on our New Jersey farm.

We harvest and husk our rice in very small batches so it is as fresh as possible when it reaches your plate – this night is no exception.

The evening begins at 4:00pm with hors d’oeuvres, drinks, live music, and a tour of our fields. The night will culminate with a delicious meal, under the stars,  created by Chef Max Hansen, of Bucks County, using many other seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK).  Please read about Chef Max Hansen’s many accomplishments in food.
