Well, hello…

Whether you’ve never been or you come every year, you don’t want to miss this year’s one-of-a-kind Farm-to-Fork Dinner & Fundraiser on October 12 in downtown Kokomo.

Each year, we offer a completely different Farm-to-Fork experience in interesting locations around Howard County. We are returning downtown this year to Courthouse Alley to highlight the renaissance of local art–from sculpture to handmade, upcycled furniture, to a perfectly crafted meal.

Tickets are $60 each and include an absolutely delicious locally-sourced and -prepared dinner with drinks, entertainment, a cool t-shirt, and connection with your community. Farm-to-Fork is a fun way to meet like-minded people, enjoy a sensational meal, and show your support for your favorite little farmers’ market. Advanced tickets are required and will sell out. Grab yours before it’s too late.

We are changing lives one meal at a time!
