This 2018 year, because it is a special occasion and we are honoring Chip Taylor we are adding a Farm to Table Dinner at an additional fee. It will be Saturday night after the Funday at the Fairgrounds-here is the tentative menu. It will be catered by Chef Ken Baker from Lawrence Beer Co. They will also make us a Honey Beer and we will serve that and mead. There will be an additional charge for those beverages.
