On October 10 at 7 p.m., the Friends of the University of Mississippi’s Museum host the second annual Harvest Supper–a farm-to-table celebration–on the grounds of William Faulkner’s Rowan Oak. All proceeds benefit the University Museum and Historic Houses, including Rowan Oak.

The Harvest supper follows the annual membership party at the University Museum. Guests at the supper will walk Rowan Oak’s alley of cedars to the gathering, tucked deep onto the property, next to Faulkner’s noble Greek Revival home. Café lights, draped beneath a cobalt sky, illuminate the evening’s events, including an array of cocktails and live music performed by Mississippi’s own Shannon McNally and her band.

All food, grown locally at Woodson Ridge Farms, is prepared by the farm’s co-partner and chef Elizabeth Heiskell. She will present dinner, spread out on a grand farm table, and guests will feast from a melange of freshly picked herbs and vegetables, local meats, and homemade biscuits and skillet breads. Cut garden flowers—zinnias, sunflowers, black-eyed susans—arranged courtesy of Oxford Floral, will adorn tables where guests gather and relax beneath a canopy of wooded fall foliage.

Tickets to the dinner are $125. Purchase by calling (662) 915-7073 or request by email at museum@olemiss.edu.
