Voice of The River Valley and Enos Farms. Forward!
A great publication in our area is Voice of The River Valley. This month we welcome new Publisher and Editor Sara Lomasz Flesch, who takes over from Founder Mary Friedel-Hunt.
The Voice covers community events and great stories that inspire and enrich life in our area of the lower Wisconsin River. You can follow this great publication below.
This month features a great article about a friend of mine and a patron of the Wisconsin Innovation Kitchen, Jeremy Lynch of Enos Farms. Enos Farms is in the Town of Wyoming in the northern part of Iowa County near Taliesen and Spring Green.
Jeremy and his fiancee Erin Crooks are featured in a wonderful article in this month's written by Sara Lomasz Flesch.
Here's a couple excerpts...
"Crooks and Lynch soon discovered their shared passion for food, cooking and farming and Crooks began working with Lynch in the fields at Enos Farms. She helped him refocus Enos Farms’ energies on catering weddings and other events featuring food grown, preserved, and/or procured from farms within 100 miles of Spring Green."
"Crooks had worked with the organization Outstanding in the Field, and last fall suggested hosting a similar event to promote the catering business and show off Enos Farms."
"After cutting trails on the farm and designating certain fields and groves for different courses of the gourmet meal, in October 2011 Enos Farms hosted its first in a series of “full moon dinners.” Cocktails, crackers and cheese were served in a vegetable field; a four-course gourmet meal was served in the walnut grove; and for dessert their guests hiked up to the knob and enjoyed coffee and dessert as the sun set and full moon rose."
"Subsequent dinners have featured themes like “Open Heart” for Valentine’s Day (Lynch’s birthday), “A Taste of the Isles,” and “Cinco de Mayo,” the latter of which featured black bean and spiced walnut tacos that guests can’t stop talking about. Future dinners are planned for Unity Chapel and Hilltop, those places of significance from Lynch’s child- hood that will also factor into another wedding they plan to host a year from now—their own."
The next farm dinner at Enos Farms is October 28th, their second annual Harvest Moon Dinner. You can join these good folks through the Enos Farms link below.
