Reservations are now being accepted for this year’s Cuisine in the Corn.
Introduced in 2011, the unique experience includes an all-Iowa dinner at Bloomsbury Farm near Atkins on Aug. 25. Transported by hayrack, diners are transported deep into a cornfield where there is one long, elegantly-adorned table. An Iowa wine-tasting kicks off the evening at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at approximately 7 p.m.
Cost is $75 per person ($85 after Aug. 10) and reservations can be made online. With seating limited to 150 guests, organizers expect the event to be a sell-out.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Four Oaks, one of the state’s largest child welfare, juvenile justice and behavioral health agency. Headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Four Oaks and its affiliates serve more than 14,000 children and families in all 99 Iowa counties.
