This past weekend, I had the privelage of attending the Spice Acres Farm Warming party to take pictures. I have been following Chef Ben's career for many years, and his newest adventure is absolutely incredible! He has purchased a farm in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and will be producing meat and produce for Spice Restaurant, as well as Spice Catering company, literally bringing the farm to the table. This past weekend, the farm warming party was very special because it helped raise money for the farm as well as raise awareness of the endeaver.
The party was set up in many different sections throughout the multi acres of the property. They had bars set up in hoop houses, mixed in the pine tree forest, and dinner was a cozy family style dinner in the barn and a fabulous tent. Every direction you turned there was someone enjoying a delicious cocktail that was provided by OYO, munching on some kettle corn, or listening to relaxing music surrounded by happy friends. The weather challenged us with a little bit with some rain, but it did not put a damper on any of the festivities. The evening ended with smores and a bonfire, and many happy friends enjoying what is going to be a very successful farm.
I took some fun pictures I hope you enjoy!
