The Black Dirt Feast is back after a two-year COVID-driven absence. The Pine Island Chamber of Commerce is overjoyed to be able to, once again, showcase the high-quality produce from local farms, and the award-winning chefs who will prepare the gourmet meals at this year’s feast, while raising money for the local community.

The Pine Island Chamber of Commerce uses the proceeds from the Black Dirt Feast to donate to several local food pantries, fund beautification initiatives in Pine Island, and, even during the pandemic, the Chamber has continued to award Black Dirt Scholarships to deserving youth in our community.

This year, three scholarships of $1,500 each will be given to deserving town of Warwick graduating seniors, or students in good standing at a college or university who are, or will be, enrolled in a program for agriculture, equestrian studies, culinary arts, the hospitality Industry or arts and sciences.

This farm to table celebration pairs a sumptuous al fresco meal with fine wines on the great lawn of Glenwood Green in Pine Island. Guests will be seated under a large tent, Tuscan style, at long tables with elegant linens, china and glassware as they relax at sunset, and listen to live music in the breathtaking black dirt region. Guests will enjoy cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres as part of a tasting menu of local salad, soup, fish, poultry, meat and dessert, all from award-winning local restaurants who donate their time and staff. Vegetarian options will be available.

The servers and helpers will be Warwick Valley Middle and High School volunteers. Flowers and custom arrangements will be provided by Flowers by Lisa in Pine Island.

A full-color program guide will describe the hamlet of Pine Island, its history, the nature of the community, and the ongoing collaboration between farmers and consumers. It will include an ad from each sponsor, the menu, biographical sketches of the chefs, and a list of the source farms for this year’s menu.
