Farm to Table Dinner

A Wisconsin Farm-to-Table dinner and fundraiser was held on Saturday, July 30, at the Sunburst Dairy Farm in Belleville. On Brian and Yogi Brown's 33rd wedding anniversary, they hosted this event which featured a farm tour, live music, and catered dinner. The dinner was prepared by Tyler Sailsbery, the owner of Black Sheep and Fin & Hooves restaurants in Whitewater. The ingredients for the meal came from local producers like Wolff's Bellefontaine Pheasant Farm and the Hop Garden. The beef used was raised by Belleville High School senior Clarice Loeffelholz. Tours of the farm were given by 2015 Belleville graduate Whitney Brown and 2010 Belleville graduate Cory Brown. Proceeds for the fundraiser went to the Busy Beaver 4-H Club.

It was a great night to celebrate local agriculture and to learn about the origins of the food we eat. All those involved represented Belleville so well!
