Hunter's Moon

Our first farm-to-table dinner was a huge success!
The Delaware Agricultural Museum’s “Hunter’s Moon” first in a series of farm-to-table dinners, was a huge success with a sold-out crowd of 106 satisfied diners in attendance.

Held on Tuesday, October 22, the dinner showcased the rich bounty of Delaware agriculture amid the beautiful elegance of the Hunter’s Moon motif. The guests enjoyed entrees prepared by Lighthouse Catering chef, Paul Buchness, a selection of seasonal craft brews from Fordham and Dominion Brewery and wines from Harvest Ridge Winery. A surprise highlight of the evening for the supportive gathering was a ceremony thanking long-time Delaware Agricultural Museum volunteer and civic leader, Mr. Gene Carlisle, for his Adopt-A-Building donation in the amount of $25,000 to address long-term preservation needs associated with historic St. Thomas Methodist Episcopal Church (ca. 1857). Gene is a long time volunteer and much beloved member of the Ag Museum family. Here is his bio (as supplied by Gene) for those who would like to know a “little” more about him:

“I am a native Delawarean. I live 4 blocks from the house where we lived when I was born. In other words, I have lived in Felton all my life.”

The Delaware Agricultural Museum Board of Trustees, Staff and Volunteers extend our sincere thanks to Gene Carlisle, “a man of few words and many big deeds”.

"Excellent museum and village. Bring some food for Lulu the Pot Bellied Pig."
