Consumers and farmers come together each year for the Wisconsin Farm to Table Dinner, a memorable dining experience focused on a farm’s dedication to animal care, environmental practices and providing safe and pure food products consumed at family dinner tables throughout the year.

This year’s Wisconsin Farm to Table dinner and fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 17, and will be hosted by the Emmons Blaine Dairy Cattle Research Center, on the Arlington Ag Research Station in Arlington.

The evening’s creations will be prepared and presented by local chef and self-proclaimed farm kid Tyler Sailsbery. Chef Sailsbery is the head chef and owner of The Black Sheep in Whitewater, where he works with local farmers to craft unique dishes, packed with fresh ingredients and divine flavors. Chef Sailsbery also works as the executive chef and general manager for Fin & Hooves, inside the Whitewater Country Club, which offers a casual and fun atmosphere.

Proceeds from the Wisconsin Farm to Table dinner go toward a charity chosen by this year’s hosts. In 2018, host farm Darlington Ridge Farms chose to donate to Family Promise of Grant County and the Belmont Remarkable Angels.

The sixth annual Farm to Table dinner will incorporate a farm tour at 5 p.m., followed by a cheese reception and live music entertainment at 6 p.m., and conclude with a catered dinner complemented by a supplier stories program at 7 p.m.
