On May 13, we were honored to host our first annual Farm Dinner at Arcadia Farm! In celebration of Mother's day, Chef Tony Chittum from Vermillion Restaurant treated 75 guests to an unforgettable dinner nestled in the growing fields.
Menu items included charcoal grilled asparagus with maryland blue crab “remoulade” & little croutons and grassentials farm rabbit with whole wheat orecchiette, mustard & everona cheese. Arcadia Farm provided lettuces, turnips, beets, radishes and herbs for the meal! Our farm friends at Fields of Athenry, Northern Neck, Pipe Dreams Farm and Moutoux Orchards (as well as many others!) also provided local, fresh, seasonal food!
We are excited to host more dinners on the farm and we send a sincere thanks to the Neighborhood Restaurant Group staff and the amazing staff at Vermillion for all your help and hard work to benefit Arcadia! We also thank all of our guests-- we are humbled by the community support and can't wait to see you out in the fields again!
