Charity Dinner for Rachael Ray

[fusion_text]A week from today will be Thanksgiving. I would like to encourage everyone giving thanks next week, to not overlook the farmers who work year round to provide food for our tables. Today I would like to highlight the farms that provided the cheese, milk, spirits, and apples for my Rachael Ray Dinner, and give a special thanks to my daughter in law Annie who provided the eggs! Chaseholm Farm, Kleins Kill Fruit Farms, and Harvest Spirits Farm Distillery are all third-generation run farms, and my dear friend Farmer Fred at Hill-Over Healthy & Fresh is a ninth-generation dairy farmer. Their dedication to carrying on their family’s craft is so important because without farms, there would be no food. Farming is a difficult and tireless job, as you sit down to enjoy your Thanksgiving feasts, be sure to thank the farmers too. #NoFarmsNoFood #Thanksgiving #ThankaFarmer[/fusion_text][fullwidth backgroundcolor=”” backgroundimage=”” backgroundrepeat=”no-repeat” backgroundposition=”left top” backgroundattachment=”scroll” video_webm=”” video_mp4=”” video_ogv=”” video_preview_image=”” overlay_color=”” overlay_opacity=”0.5″ video_mute=”yes” video_loop=”yes” fade=”no” bordersize=”0px” bordercolor=”” borderstyle=”” paddingtop=”20px” paddingbottom=”20px” paddingleft=”0px” paddingright=”0px” menu_anchor=”” equal_height_columns=”no” hundred_percent=”no” class=”” id=””][separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”” sep_color=”” icon=”fa-pagelines” width=”” class=”” id=””][/fullwidth][one_half last=”no” spacing=”yes” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” class=”” id=””][imageframe lightbox=”no” style_type=”none” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”none” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][fusion_text]At the Rachael Ray Show with the wonderful family who won the auction to benefit the Yum-O Foundation to eat dinner at my house.
