Black Dirt Feast at Scheuermann Farms

Tuesday, August 7, 2018, 6pm to 9pm

Proceeds benefit local food pantries and the Black Dirt Scholarship Fund.

Black Dirt Feast: Each year the Pine Island Chamber of Commerce celebrates the collaboration of local farmers and restaurateurs with its popular Black Dirt Feast. Held in the picturesque fields overlooking the stunning Pine Island landscape as the sun sets over the mountains, this farm to table al fresco affair highlights the true bounty and beauty of the region. Guests enjoy an exquisitely prepared meal that incorporates local produce and foods served on fine china amid relaxing music from area musicians. In the past, the proceeds from this annual fundraiser went to local area initiatives, such as the Chamber’s Beautification Program and Black Dirt Scholarship as well as to benefit community food pantries.
