Farm To Table Dinner
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT. We apologize for any inconvenience. Remember to book early next year!
The gardens at Hagley were used as food sources by the du Pont family and the powder yard workers and their families. For one-night only, we're hosting a family style farm-to-table dinner in the historic Hagley barn. Chef Dan Butler and chefs from the Belin House Organic Café will cook on site.
The menu includes ingredients from local sources: Bright Spot Farms, an urban agricultural project in Wilmington; Haskell’s Farm; and Highland Orchards, and from our own gardens.
This dinner is for members-only. Members may purchase tickets for guests or you can purchase a membership at (302) 658-2400, ext. 235.
