RCHS’ Farm-to-Table Feast to Honor Local Agricultural Businesses
Janesville, WI – The Rock County Historical Society’s Sunday Dinner: A Farm to Table Feast will return for its fourth consecutive year at Noon on September 8th outdoors on the RCHS campus, 440 N. Jackson Street in Janesville. Five Rock County agricultural businesses will be recognized.
The dinner is prepared by a different professional chef each year, using locally sourced ingredients. The chefs from Velvet Buffalo Café in Beloit will make this year’s four-course meal.
“Sunday Dinner is about showing the appreciation that Rock County residents have for our agriculturally rich community,” said RCHS Executive Director Tim Maahs. “We are pleased to be honoring five area businesses that have contributed for many years to the farming community at a local, regional, national and even international level.”
The five businesses are: Johnson Tractors; Skelly’s Farm Market; MacFarlane Pheasants; The Schleuter Company; and Jack and Dick’s Feed and Garden.
While savoring the family-style meal, guests will be entertained with live music by Bathtub Mothers, a three-piece band that plays acoustic blues music.
Tickets to Sunday Brunch are $50 per person and available online at by calling RCHS at 608-756-4509 ext. 301.
