Farm-to-Table dinner Aug. 25 to be hosted by Reihm Farm

Riehm Produce Farm, 7244 N. SR 53, is planning a Farm-to-Table Dinner 6-9 p.m. Aug. 25.

“We live in quite an area here in northwest Ohio that offers exceptional agriculture and unmatched expertise in this area,” said owner-operator Diane Riehm in a news release. “Phil Riehm from Riehm Produce Farm, Chef Wes Castle from Tiffin and community supported agriculture members are spearheading this event with other local volunteers.”

Farm-to-Table events showcase area farmers and promote the economic benefits of buying local along with the health advantages of eating fresh, she said. Invited people are from multiple industries including agriculture, medical, hospitality, education and others.

“We enjoy having the community here on the farm,” Riehm said. “The three-hour venue for the evening provides participants hors d’oeuvres, several courses, and dessert with a bonus tour to the colorful fields.”
