Experience Virginia’s Harvest Bounty at the Spring House Farm Root to Table Dinner.
Farmer Andrew Crush and his family invites you to his farm on top of the mountain overlooking Loudoun County Wine Country for his Spring House Farm Harvest Dinner. This event is the eighth event of the 2019 Root to Table Culinary Series.
“Spring House Farm is very excited to be collaborating on this Fall Harvest Dinner with Taste of Blue Ridge, Chef Erik of Magnolia’s at the Mill, Chef Justin of Justin Thyme Catering, and Chef Britt. It’ll be an epic event filled with elegant dishes, amazing views, and a warm atmosphere. It is the atmosphere and the talent of these chefs that make this event outstanding. There will be no other event like this event in 2019. You don’t want to miss it! ” said Andrew Crush, Owner of Spring House Farm.
Spring House Farm
Spring House Farm was established in 2004 when Andrew Crush and his wife Liz were tired of cooking the bland meat from factory style farms. They started with a mission to “operate a sustainable, ecologically friendly farm dedicated to providing the finest foods that our earth can naturally produce.” The farm consists of several owned and leased properties in Loudoun County, Virginia. The Crush’s Spring House Farm raises a multitude of products that include pasture-raised and forest-finished pork, grass fed beef, meat goats, rabbits and honey.
Meet Farmer Andrew Crush
Andrew has won 2016 America’s Best Young Farmers and Ranchers by “The Progressive Farmer” and the Rural Business of the Year and Rural Business under 40 by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce in 2015.
Growing up in Southern Virginia, Andrew lived in a neighborhood with acres of land to hunt, fish, and play on. This is a freedom that’s nowadays taken for granted by many tablet and phone-obsessed kids. Andrew wanted to make sure his children would have the same liberties he was given growing up. For the Crush family, farm ownership allows for the environment they want: hard work with equally as hard play, which equals an ultimately active lifestyle.
Spring House Farm Harvest Dinner
You will begin on top of a mountain overlooking the Loudoun County Wine Country. Guests will relax by the pond and enjoy raw oysters, drinks, and yard games. Then they will move up the hill where dinner will be served. The event wraps up at sunset with a plated dessert.
Spring House Farm’s unique approach is au naturel, which means the cattle is grass-fed and pork is forest finished. As a farm, this alone is enough to make Spring House Farm stand out from the rest.
“Andrew Crush is a great farmer and trusted friend. This event promises to be representative of what he and Virginia have to offer. I am delighted to have created this menu with Andrew. Enjoy! – Chef Erik Foxx-Nettnin.
