DARLINGTON - The fifth annual Wisconsin Farm to Table dinner and fundraiser will be held at 5 p.m. August 4 at Darlington Ridge Farms, 24425 St. Peters Road, in Southwest Wisconsin; the farm is managed by Jim and Katie DiGangi. The milk from their farm is shipped through Dairy Farmers of America and is sold to local milk and cheese plants.

The event will incorporate a farm tour at 5 p.m., followed by a cocktail hour and live music at 6 p.m. and conclude with a catered dinner complimented by a supplier stories program at 7 p.m. The menu will be prepared and presented by local chef Tyler Sailsbery, head chef and owner of The Black Sheep in Whitewater, where he works with local farmers to create dishes using fresh ingredients.
