Midwinter Revelry, A Celebration of Local Food


Revel: to take great pleasure or delight in a situation; to make merry; to indulge in boisterous festivities.

Slow Food Seacoast, in partnership with Heirloom Harvest Project, Heron Pond Farm and Bakie Farm Initiative, offer a local foods feast at the Bakie Farm in Kingston NH, Sunday January 27, 2019 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm.

There is much to revel in this season, as we celebrate the year round abundance of our local food system. Gather with us to enjoy a meal made of locally-produced ingredients by the area’s top chefs, showcasing the breadth of local foods available, even in midwinter! TICKETS NOW ON SALE!

In keeping with the tradition of the Heirloom Harvest Barn Dinner, many of the Seacoast’s best chefs will be collaborating to create a meal using not only local foods, but also highlighting the ways in which food can be re-purposed to avoid going to waste.

  • George Bezanson, Earth’s Harvest Eatery
  • Jonathan Blakeslee, White Heron Tea and Coffee
  • Brett Cavana, The Carriage House

The dinner will take place inside the historic barn and outside on the grounds. Guests can stay cozy in the heated barn or venture out to gather around a warming fire, complete with steaming mugs of beverages and passed hors d’oeuvres.

The seated dinner takes place in the upper loft of the barn. Please note that this area can only be accessed by stairs and bear that in mind when deciding whether to attend. Guests should plan to wear warm clothing, sturdy shoes and leave the fancy dress for another evening. Tickets are $100 per person, all inclusive: appetizers, five-course dinner and libations.

As with all our events, volunteers are needed! CLICK HERE to see the Sign-up page for volunteers.

We are reveling in the delight of our new venue at Bakie Farm! The Bakie Farm Initiative’s mission is to build community through local agriculture. The property is currently being restored to a working farm and an array of educational programs are under development.
