The food isn’t the only thing to look forward to at this elegant happening. Guests will also have the opportunity to tour the farm with wooly mascot Charlie and watch Laura Brittingham, the farm’s owner, create lavender essential oils through the fascinating copper distillation process.

“We are so excited to host this incredible event,” says Brittingham. “Chef James Gop of Heirloom Fire is simply amazing, and to partner with him and bring his magic here for people to enjoy in this beautiful setting among our rows of blooming lavender…It’s certain to be a one-of-a-kind memorable event.”

James Gop, the mind behind Heirloom Fire, is a renowned chef who has been featured on Martha Stewart, The Food Network, Netflix and several food publications for his inventive dinners and creative mind. Heirloom Fire aims to tell the story of a region by partnering with the most talented local farmers on the East Coast. Past dinners have taken place in unique locations such as the middle of a forest, inside of a cave, and on the beaches of Boca Raton.

Brittingham Farms—a grain and lavender farm in Millsboro—will join this impressive list of locations this weekend. The farm grows seven different cultivars of lavender, planted to ensure an impressive field of purple all summer long. It grows many essential oil varieties and has started an artisanal distillery operation that will produce lavender essential oil and hydrosol used to create candles, soaps, beauty products and more. The farm also raises Leicester Longwool heritage breed sheep, first brought to the American colonies prior to the Revolutionary War by George Washington. There are only about 100 breeders of this heritage breed in the United States.
