Farm to Table

The Invitation hand delivered in small burlap bags

The Lloyd's Farm Table
The Season's Abundance from Jennie and her neighbor's yard arranged in baskets and dishes serve as the table's focal point.

The Featured Artisans

What exactly was on the menu you ask? Only locally grown or handcrafted food of course. Thank you Brent Morely for hooking us up with some pretty incredible whole fillet of beef. (I'm only sorry he was never photographed, with the task of cooking the meat for this crew, he was never sitting around.)

Homemade Mint Lemonade

Caprise Bruschetta with Homegrown Tomatoes, Sweet Basil & Mozzarella Balls

Blue Cheese, Roasted Potato, and Field Greens Salad with Lemon-Garlic Dressing

Chive, Parsley and Rosemary Rolls

Yellow Squash Gratin, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Filet of Beef with Gorgonzola & Onion Sauce

Berries, Peaches and Cream Pavlova

Jennie's gracious parting gifts - Homemade Basil Pesto

And then take a burlap bag and fill it with shared abundance from guests' gardens


  1. My mouth is officially salivating. I am wishing I could have been there to share the abundance & am thinking it would be so fun to start a similar group here. But I could never, ever measure up. If I do start a group, I'll be the first to host & begin with something like hot dogs - keep the expectations low so there will be nowhere to go but up the next time! Love love love the pics & ideas.

  2. I was there! Oh, it was so magnificent!! I was just telling everyone who met me for lunch today about the fantastic dream dinner group. . . . and then I was trying to describe how amazing everything was. And now I have photos to refer them to. Thanks Aimee!
