The Eighth Annual Harvest Dinner extends an invitation to the community to join in a celebration of "The Good Life" in northern Minnesota.
The Harvest Dinner brings together all who are interested in the region's water-rich environments and agricultural heritage.
This summer, the celebration will begin at 5 p.m. Aug. 26 and is again at Sunup Ranch, 12316 County 18 SW, Brainerd.
The event features a farmers market, live demonstrations, horse-drawn wagon rides and live music with Hans Blix and the Weapons Inspectors, along with activities for all ages.
The plated dinner is a variety of fare from local producers, served chuckwagon style and prepared by local chefs. Taste some of the local brews from Gull Dam Brewery and Roundhouse Brewery. Introduce the palate to a variety of wines with a tasting sponsored by Cash Wise Liquors.
This year, the Harvest Dinner is a recipient of a grant from Region Five Development Commission's branding project, called "The Good Life." Counties in the region were invited to apply, with Region Five's goal of evaluating community efforts or events that exemplify what "The Good Life" means in this region. The ultimate goal is to draw in the next generation interested in the region's future, a news release stated.
This event is also sponsored by Cass County Farm Bureau, Whitefish Area Property Owners Association, Pine River Watershed Alliance, Central Chapter of the Sustainable Farming Association, Happy Dancing Turtle, Crow Wing River Basin Forage Council, Minnesota Beef Council, Y4 Ranch, Bell's Rawhide Ranch and Sunup Ranch.
