The Mill Spring Agricultural Development Center, known to locals as the ag center, will host its third annual Farm to Fork supper and open house Saturday, Oct. 13 from 5:30 – 9:30 p.m.
This event is the largest annual fundraiser for the ag center and has quickly become an annual social highlight for the community. Following tradition, the evening will take place on the front grounds of the ag center amidst the ancient magnolia tree and the expansive new Mill Spring farm gardens. The event will focus on the area’s rich agricultural roots, as well as Polk’s deep sense of community through fresh, local food, drink, music and art.
The silent auction and 50/50 raffle will be an important part of fundraising efforts to enable future projects to be completed as restoration of the Agricultural Development Center continues.
Tickets will go on sale in August and will be available on a first come, first serve basis at the Mill Spring Farm Store, farmer’s markets and online. The past two events have sold out quickly, so make sure you are signed up to receive future updates via
Farm to Fork is currently securing volunteers to help with the many facets of the event. If you would like to be involved, would like to be considered for the evening’s musical line-up, have your art be a part of the event or make a donation for the silent auction, contact Mindy Wiener at
