Taste Litchfield

The culinary event of the season is Taste of Litchfield




How better to bridge summer and fall than by gathering the best in food, wine, and craft cocktails—all on the 90-acre South Farms in Morris. In addition to the 25-plus tables featuring delicious savory and sweet, hot and cold tastes from talented chefs and bakers, we also feature a live and lively discussion on the topic of Restaurant War Stories, from famed restaurateurs Carole Peck of the Good News Cafe, John Harris of White Horse Country Pub, and Chris Eddy from Winvian. For more info and tickets.

The Venue
Located in Morris, South Farms has been owned by the Paletsky family for nearly 70 years and spans four generations. Its 100-plus-acre homestead features an iconic 20,000-square-foot dairy barn surrounded by picturesque, open pastures. Under the stewardship of Ben Paletsky, grandson of the founder, the White Barn at South Farms has been re-created, offering a venue for many diverse events. “We’ve tried to make the space special while still maintaining the integrity of the farm." It's the perfect setting for 25 great food and drink establishments, 400 guests, live entertainment, an engaging panel discussion, and an afternoon of yummy fun. 

Giving Back
One beneficiary of Taste of Litchfield is the food pantry at St. Michael’s in Litchfield. Opening day in May drew 18 people, June served 47 people, and July, 53 people. Donations have come from Bantam Bread, Bantam Market, Camp Washington, Chandra Guerard, Knights of Columbus, Morris-Litchfield Rotary, Food Rescue US, and Litchfield Social Services. Roughly 75 families in the town of Litchfield suffer from food insecurity.

Restaurant War Stories will take place during the event.
