By Staff | Oct 9, 2013

MASON CITY – Healthy Harvest of North Iowa, Mason City Brewing, 1910 Grille, Decker House Bed ad Breakfast, Hy-Vee West and Jitters Coffee Bar are teaming up to put on an all-local, progressive dinner on Oct. 17 in downtown Mason City.

Additional partners include Blue Zones Project of Mason City and Iowa State University Extension of Cerro Gordo County.

The Farm to Fork Dinner features three courses, all based on in-season, locally produced food.

The local farms involved in the sales will be featured at the dinner.

Healthy Harvest of North Iowa is a non-profit entity, organized to promote the development of a local food system in North Iowa.

“One of the first big steps in our work,” said Jan Libbey, coordinator, ” is simply building relationships and experience with the local food production capacity in North Iowa.

“At last year’s dinner, there were several comments of surprise that all this food was possible from local sources.

“I believe the production capacity is far beyond what many North Iowans expect.”

Tickets, at $55 per person, are on sale at Mason City Brewing, Historic Park Inn, Decker House B&B, Hy-Vee West, Coffee Cat, Moorman’s Clothier and Healing House in Clear Lake.

The ticket price includes the tip and the dinner offers three seatings at 4:30 p.m., 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., with 30 diners in each seating.
