A series of nine Farm-to-Table dinners are being planned at state parks across West Virginia. The series of events, planned between June 15 and September 12, is aimed to source more ingredients from local farmers.

Several state agencies and organizations are collaborating on the series, including the West Virginia Department of Agriculture, the Department of Natural Resources, and the West Virginia Farmers Market Association.

This is the second year the series of Farm to Table dinners will take place.

The dinners will take place at state park restaurants, putting locally grown foods and products on the menu from June to September.

Several of the events will have themes such as “Hoedown on the Hill” at the Chief Logan State Park and “Pickin-Pull” at the Pipestem park in an effort to teach people about their local foods.
