We’re getting all corny!
Join Chef Katie and Chef Hans on Sunday, June 26 for a special Corn Dinner at the Wallace Farm. All 3 courses of the farm-to-table menu feature dishes made from corn grown in last year’s Henry A. Wallace Historic Corn Plot, hand-shelled and ground into corn meal and corn flour by our friends at Early Morning Harvest. All of the other produce comes from the Wallace Farm as well. Seating will be community seating with group requests accommodated as much as possible.
Cornmeal Fritter with Farm Greens, Lemon Vinaigrette, Radishes, Creme Fraiche
Red Wine Braised Pork Shoulder with Creamy Polenta, Asparagus, Pickled Onions & Microgreens, Red Wine Jus
Corn Flour Cake with Rhubarb Compote, Corn Infused Ice Cream
Wine and beer available for purchase.
The Corn Dinner begins at 6 pm, but come early to explore the Wallace Farm. Walk through the production garden, see the new Prairie Art Exhibit (1 mile gentle walk), and stop in the gift shop. Staff will be on hand at the corn plot beginning at 5:30 pm to answer questions. A short program during dinner will share the corn plot story and its journey to your plate.
The Henry A. Wallace Historic Corn Plot includes 5 varieties of open-pollinated and hybrid corn that revolutionized agriculture. The plot is sponsored by Corteva Agriscience, founded by Henry A. Wallace in 1926 as Hi-Bred Corn Company and later known as Pioneer Hi-Bred.
