Evening in the Country
Mill River Farm, MA

A beautifully crafted farm to table dinner from last summer with Jim Gop of Heirloom Fire and Magdalena of Magdalena Events. Together these two create epic gatherings. This feast was at the majestic Mill River Farm in Western Massachusetts. As guests arrived they were greeted with Chamomile infused moonshine, um yes please. While the property filled with guests, the aroma of freshly picked vegetables and flowers, locally raised chicken cooking over an open fire was alchemy at it’s best. At the same time, Jim prepared the appetizer table of cured meats and homemade pickled vegetables. Magdalena worked her magic, as she always does, inside the greenhouse with golden lights, moss, ferns and wooden planks adorned with glass apothecary jars. Beautiful pottery that the guests enjoyed dinner on, were made by local artists, Amrita Lash, Sandra Thomas, Jackie Sedlock, Suzy Konecky, and Stephanie Boyd. The food and ambience was incredible, but most important was the spirit and passion behind it all, love at it’s finest. It is always a joy to photograph and be apart of events like this, as I am passionate about supporting local artists and business’s as well as sustainable agriculture. If this event happens again do not miss the opportunity, enjoy!
