Terhune Hosts Second Farm to Table Fundraiser

Terhune Orchards will host the second annual Sustainable Fare for Sustainable Jersey fundraiser on Thursday, July 25 at Terhune Orchards, 330 Cold Soil Road in Lawrenceville.

Cocktails will be served starting at 5 p.m. and dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $150 per person and can be purchased at sustainable

Renowned local chefs will come together to celebrate the farm to table movement and promote awareness about sustainability efforts while raising money for Sustainable Jersey’s programs.

“Sustainable Jersey has played a critical role in the progress many towns across the Garden State have made in advancing environmental stewardship and healthy communities,” said Terhune Orchards owner Pam Mount. “The night will be a great celebration of local food and wonderful chefs who are known for their dedication to focusing on fresh local ingredients. Last year the event was a big hit and we are looking forward to an even bigger event this year.”

Guests will enjoy a five-course meal with wine pairings, cocktails, and music by the Riverside Band in Terhune’s Amish-built barn. Chefs who have generously volunteered their time for the event include: Christopher Albrecht of Eno Terra, Scott Anderson of Elements and Mistral, Aaron Philipson of the Blue Bottle Cafe, Jonathan Benno of the Lincoln Restaurant, Josh Thomsen of Agricola, Christine Merker of Meals For Reals, and Gabby Carbone from the Bent Spoon.

Sustainable Jersey, a non-profit, runs a certification program that empowers towns to build a better world for present and future generations. The program provides a roadmap towns can follow to initiate and promote sustainable actions that improve the quality of life. More than 400 towns have registered to become a part of the program that was founded by the New Jersey League of Municipalities, the College of New Jersey, the State of New Jersey and hundreds of volunteers around the state.
