The Fauquier Education Farm’s “Feast from the Field” again will take place in the large equipment building at Moriah Farm just east of Warrenton.
The Fauquier Education Farm will host its eighth annual “Feast from the Field” fundraiser Saturday, Sept. 18.

Cancelled last year because of the pandemic, the dinner again will take place in a large equipment shed at Moriah Farm, across Meetze Road from the education farm, just east of Warrenton.

Tickets are $95 per person, with a purchase deadline of Sept. 10.

The event will feature a farm tour with Executive Director Jim Hankins from 5 to 6 p.m., followed by a reception with light appetizers before the dinner of local foods and beverages.

The Cabin Raiders will provide old-time Appalachian music.

Last year, the education farm hosted a fall festival in October rather than the annual dinner.

Founded on county-owned land in 2010, the education farm last year grew a record 71,428 pounds of fresh produce, donated to area food banks with the help of volunteers. The organization also offers community workshops and an incubator program for those who want to start small farms.

Grants and fundraisers support the program.
