Mother Lode Harvest: Autumn Harvest Dinner - Sat Sept 30

Join Mother Lode Harvest (MLH), a local CSA, in celebrating the autumn harvest on Saturday, September 30, from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, surrounded by the vineyards at Vino Noceto in Shenandoah Valley. The event is called “Our Bountiful Foothills: a Farm-to-Fork Dinner Under a Harvest Moon,” and it is a time to rejoice in the tremendous fruits of our farmers’ summer labors, with the Harvest Moon traditionally being the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox.

We will start the celebration with a gorgeous array of appetizers and fine Vino Noceto wines while we tour their market garden, created through a partnership between Vino Noceto and MLH farmer James Hackworth.

We will be enjoying the music of the Amador City All-Stars as we feast on a Mediterranean-inspired dinner, bid on wonderful items in a silent auction, and watch the sun set beyond the vineyard. The meal will be locally-sourced, and will feature beef from Winterport Farm in Ione, grilled by Laughton Ranch of Jackson. There will also be a vegetarian option, a myriad of late summer vegetables, and gluten-free pear tart for dessert. Vino Noceto wines and Amador Brewing Company beer will be available for purchase to perfectly accompany the delicious meal.

Tickets to the event are $50 for MLH members, and $55 for non-members. They can be purchased at our Distribution Center at 1235 Jackson Gate Road in Jackson, on Tuesdays 10:30 am-12 pm and 4:30-6:00 pm. They are also available on our website at, and by mail. The proceeds raised will be used to upgrade our website, and to sustain our CSA.
