“Farm to table dining is a way for our markets to connect consumers to food grown and raised across the region and we believe in supporting local family farms and keeping our dollars in the community,” explains Lane McConnell, the Executive Director with Farmers Market of the Ozarks. “This is the first dinner like this held in Taney County and we will ensure it’s a top-notch event and the use of fresh, local ingredients will be highlighted.”
Guests will arrive to the SKY Deck in the most unique way by Parakeet Pete’s Waterfront Zipline, where they will soar over Lake Taneycomo and enjoy spectacular views. Upon arriving, guests will enjoy complimentary cocktails from Copper Run Distillery and a four-course dinner beginning with a selection of appetizers, as well as beer pairings by Springfield Brewing Company. The dinner will be sourced from local farmers and ranchers and will highlight the harvest season.
“I am very excited to be partnering with the Farmers Market of the Ozarks and Branson Farmers Market for this event,” said Linda Peterson, Event and Media Manager for Parakeet Pete’s Entertainment Group. “It is important to us to be involved with projects that benefit our local community. We particularly like that this event will feature locally raised meats and produce from vendors of the Branson Farmers Market and that funds from the event are used to educate and help these vendors grow their businesses.”
The evening will include VIP transportation to the SKY Deck by Parakeet Pete’s Waterfront Zipline, spectacular views of the evening sunset, a delicious four course dining experience prepared by local Chef Jonas Romines of The Black Horse Pub with products from the farmers markets, beer pairings by Springfield Brewing Company and entertainment by Nashville recording artists, Makenna and Brock.
