Glimpses of fall are beginning to show themselves with the weather cooling, evening showers, and turning leaves. At Milk and Honey Farm, Farmers Becca Gan Levy and Molly Sease are continuing to grow and harvest a range of incredible produce including squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, kale, and zucchini. The Farm is now averaging around 100 pounds of produce harvested each week.
And so, to kick off fall, Milk and Honey Farm and Blackbelly Restaurant are inviting the community to a Farm Harvest Dinner. Chef Hosea Rosenberg of Blackbelly Market will be preparing a four-course meal reflecting the seasonal produce from Milk and Honey Farm. The produce will be paired with proteins sourced from local farms, such as Buckner Family Ranch in Longmont, CO.
Blackbelly was created by Chef Hosea Rosenberg, an award-winning chef originally from Taos, NM. Chef Rosenberg studied under chefs like Wolfgang Puck, Kevin Taylor, and Dave Query. However, many people best know him as the winner of Bravo TV’s Top Chef, Season 5 in 2009. Season 5 of Top Chef took place in New York, with 17 chefs from around the country competing for the ultimate title, Top Chef, through a series of quickfire and elimination challenges judged by some of the best-known and respected chefs in the world.
Rosenberg’s restaurant, Blackbelly, works closely with local ranchers and farms, believing that “exceptional foods must come from exceptional sources.” Blackbelly was named Best New Restaurant and has been ranked among 5280 Magazine’s top 25 restaurants each year since.
Milk and Honey Farm at the Boulder JCC is a 2-acre educational, sustainable farm that brings the greater Boulder community together via experiential programs and activities designed to ignite wonder and discovery, grounded in vast Jewish heritage, tradition, and values. Milk and Honey Farm provides year-round programming and educational opportunities. And because the Farm harvests hundreds of pounds of produce each year, they have partnered with Boulder Food Rescue to donate produce to food insecure families in Boulder County. In 2018, Milk and Honey Farm donated 2,000 pounds of produce to Boulder Food Rescue.
The Farm Harvest Dinner will prove to be delicious and full of local flavor. The cost of the dinner is $120 per person and $50 per child. A portion of the proceeds from the dinner will support Milk and Honey Farm.
