AG + Art brings back Farm-to-Table dinner

The Pearl of Monticello will play host for this year’s farm-to-table dinner.

JENKINSVILLE – The third annual Fairfield County Ag + Art farm-to-table dinner will be held Thursday, June 14, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Pearl of Monticello, formerly known as the Robinson House, a majestic two-story, circa 1810 federal style home designed by Robert Mills and situated on a rise overlooking Lake Monticello.

A previous farm-to-table dinner table was set under the Town Clock, above.

It’s the kick-off event for the annual Ag + Art Farm Tour that will take place the following weekend, and promises to be memorable, not only for the glamorous setting but for the six-course meal served Tapas style (one plate per course – six plates!) on the lawn adjacent to the mansion. And every course will be homegrown or otherwise produced in Fairfield County.

Guests will arrive along a drive shaded by majestic live oak and pecan trees, to an evening of musical entertainment and a sumptuous meal of meats and fresh fruits and vegetables, all produced by local farmers and prepared by caterer Steelhorse Smokehouse. And the glorious sunset on the lake will not disappoint.

The menu includes: cobb salad, deviled eggs, pulled pork sliders, open face with coleslaw, smoked meatballs braised in sauce and served over yellow stone-ground grits, chicken and dumplings, ham and pineapple skewers and decadent desserts.

Entertainment will begin at 6 p.m. with 16-year-old Sofia Lynch, an accomplished singer/songwriter who plays guitar, piano, ukulele and bass guitar.  She recently released her new single, ‘Curiosity.’

Special guest Luke Moore will be playing country music.

The Pearl of Monticello is located at 5264 State Highway 215 S, Jenkinsville, SC 29065.  To order tickets go to

The Pearl at Monticello will also be one of the 8 farms and locations on the self-guided Ag + Art Farm Tour weekend in Fairfield County on Saturday, June 16 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, June 17, from 1 to 5 p.m. Each farm location will also feature local artisans and artists.
