Crisp autumn air, crackling leaves underfoot, rich colours of fall. It’s my favourite time of year and we hosted the perfect fall event at the perfect site! Heritage Harvest Farms contacted us to assist with a customer appreciation event on site at their rural Jasper farm (as seen on Regional Contact).
Nestled in the country, surrounded by chickens, cows, and farmland, we erected a tent to seat 40 clients for a four course meal comprised completely of food supplied by their farm. I arrived the day of the event to the family busy in the yard, raking leaves, and doing final primping of their working farm, as chickens lazily pecked and scratched beneath our feet. The setting was beautiful, and perfect for the style of event that was planned.
Two harvest tables were spread with the bounties of autumn as centerpieces: apples, gourds, leaves, acorns, eggplant, artichokes, and plenty of candlelight. Along with garden white lights strung in the canopy, it was warm and cozy. We contracted Nicole of the Branch in Kemptville to work with the client and design a menu to highlight the best of their harvest.
