Second Farm-to-Table dinner a success

By Staff | Aug 30, 2019

“I think it went really well.”

That is what Prairie Village Museum Director Stephanie Steinke said in an email to the Tribune about the second Farm-to-Table Dinner event, which was held last week at the museum.

“The food was excellent,” Steinke added, “and I heard many comments from attendees that they liked the event, the music, and the food, and (they) enjoyed having an event like this in Rugby.”

Forty guests which Steinke said is the maximum number of people who can be served out of location and limited kitchen space were served vegetables and food from growers in central North Dakota. The menu included an appetizer sampler plate (which included potato salad, heirloom tomato soup, caviar and salmon cream cheese crackers), bison meatballs from Heartland Bison Ranch, and a triple dessert sampler plate.

The Farm-to-Table dinner began after Julia Petrovic, of FARMtastic Heritage Foods Hub, approached Steinke about the event, and the museum “took it from there.” Farmers Union Insurance, and Rugby agents Christopher Walker and Zach Axtman, helped sponsor and to get the event going in its early years.

“It’s a great way to highlight local talent and product,” said Steinke, “and what better place to host it than a museum that celebrates local heritage.”

Plans are already underway for next year’s event, which is slated for Aug. 22, 2020.
