Published 9:28 am Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Under the shade of the black barn at Gilkison Farm, nearly 200 families and friends gathered Saturday to support agriculture education in Clark County while sharing stories over tender steak and sweet bourbon pecan cake topped with peaches.

Warren Beeler, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Agriculture Policy, also spoke about agriculture’s importance during the fourth annual Harvest to Hand dinner.

Attendees enjoyed a family-style, fundraising dinner prepared by Everett Curry and the Burley BBQ Misfit Crew. All proceeds benefit agricultural education for Clark County’s youth. Gilkison Farm hosts an Ag Day for students every year, and many of the proceeds from the dinner directly fund that event.
