Copper Moose Farms – Five chefs, five wines, five hours, and um, yes that was a tenuous lead in and I have no more. On Saturday, August 29th head to Park City’s Copper Moose Farms for a one of a kind meal under the stars.

The event begins with an opening summer cocktail by Just Organic Juices followed by appetizers from Copper Moose, Red Bicycle Breadworks, Beehive Cheese and Laziz Middle Eastern Spreads. From there guests are invited to wander the farm while enjoying Copper Moose’s self-guided tour before heading under the tent, where the chefs and wine experts will present their harvest-inspired creations.

Copper Moose is committed to reconnecting people with food that can be grown in the Park City area. The farm harvests seasonal produce, herbs and flowers using crop rotation, cover crops, compost, organic soil amendments, biodynamic methods and, in winter, a 2,400-square-foot passive solar greenhouse.

“This is a true celebration of everything local here in Park City,” said farm manager, Daisy Fair. “Park City is home to some of the best chefs and best food in the world — it’s high time we showcased the ingredients we can grow locally, responsibly and sustainably here, too.”

The three-acre farm will host the dinner from 6 to 11 p.m. with tickets priced $180.
