This year's installment of Farmer in the House includes eight dinners with chefs including Vincent Guerithault, Christopher Nicosia and Jeremy Pacheco.
Though not vegetarian, each dinner is veggie-centric and features fruits and vegetables from Duncan’s "boutique sustainable farm" in Litchfield Park. Meals are paired with a featured winery or selected by the restaurant’s sommelier.
Duncan, owner of Duncan's Trading Co., grows more than 150 varieties of sustainable fruits and vegetables, including five varieties of chiles, eight varieties of exotic melons and, 15 varieties of multi-colored cherry and full-sized tomatoes.
A portion of the proceeds from each event will benefit the Association of Arizona Food Banks.
