Mingling Through the Square

About 75 people attended the second annual Farm to Table event on Saturday night enjoying a three-course meal catered by IvyWild restaurant in Sewanee. Winchester Downtown Program Director Abby Pickett said the mission statement for the event is to “incorporate and cultivate a healthy community by promoting locally grown, nutritious food through an intimate dining experience filled with a gourmet three-course meal” prepared by an award-winning local chef and regionally sourced beverages like Bean’s Creek Wine. Entertainment during the night included a performance by Ben and Hillary. The duo is made up of vocalist Hillary Bevels, who plays the fiddle, mandolin and banjo, and Ben Ayers, who plays the guitar, mandolin, bouzouki and tenor banjo. The guest speaker for the night was Rick Wright, executive chef at the University of the South McClurg Dining Hall.
