The Peconic Land Trust is hosting a country supper to honor the conservation efforts of Russell C. McCall and guess who’s invited to take a seat at the table? Yes, that’s right: you!
Hosted by celebrity chef George Hirsch, the event — Through Farms and Fields — will take place on Sunday, August 2, at 4 p.m. Supper will provided by Noah’s, with wine from McCall Wines and Sparkling Pointe. There will be music by Summer Songs, an exhibit by the Southold Indian Museum and a silent auction.
The best part, of course, is the cause. Russ McCall and his family are big players in the East End’s conservation game, having partnered with the Peconic Land Trust to save their land, Down’s Woods, and the Fort Cochaug site (over 200 acres in total) from a proposed development of condos. Additionally, in 2010, they added a wind turbine to their land to provide their farm with clean wind energy — so much so that they even supply clean power to the Long Island Power Authority, as well.
We think you’ll agree these are efforts worth celebrating. So head down to McCall Ranch at 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 2, to show your support, tour the farm, and wine and dine with the best (and greenest). Individual tickets start at $250. To buy a ticket, or for more information, you can contact Lisa Pepe at the Peconic Land Trust (631.283.3195), or visit their website here.
