Local non-profit Apple Seeds will host their sixth annual “An Evening at the Farm” fundraiser next month.

The event is set for 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5 at Apple Seeds’ teaching farm, located at 2648 North Old Wire Road next to Gulley Park in Fayetteville.

Guests will be treated to cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a multi-course farm-to-table dinner prepared by chefs Jason Paul of Heirloom, Michael Robertshaw of Persephone on Wheels, Matthew Barclay of Bordinos, and Heather Artripe of Ozark Natural Foods.

In addition to the dinner, there will also be live music by local band, Rachel B Table for Three.

Last year’s event raised more than $30,000, providing funds for Apple Seeds’ programs at the Teaching Farm and in local schools.

Tickets are $150 per person, and proceeds benefit Apple Seeds and the organization’s educational efforts and farm-based programs.
