Fall in the Lowcountry is the perfect time to get outside, enjoy excellent food and music while helping conserve local land.

Join the East Cooper Land Trust (ECLT) at Thornhill Farm in McClellanville for the third annual “Harvest Feast” – a community farm supper for local land conservation – on Thursday, Nov. 9.

The event kicks off with music by the Heather Rice Duo and charcuterie by local chef Brannon Florie of On Forty-One and Pier 41. Brannon has a history with Thornhill Farm, having started his charcuterie program there. For the third year, Brannon will be delighting guests with a five-course supper in honor and celebration of local land.

In 2014 East Cooper Land Trust acquired Thornhill Farm. This 94-acre farm will forever be agricultural and protected from subdivision. When farms are profitable and farming is valued, it decreases the threat of losing other farms to incompatible development.

For more information and to purchase your all-inclusive tickets, contact East Cooper Land Trust or go to their website at Sponsors for the event include Buist, Byars & Taylor, On Forty-One, Seamon Whiteside & Associates and Stubbs Muldrow Herin architects.

East Cooper Land Trust is a community-supported nonprofit organization devoted to conserving natural spaces, thus the quality of life for current and future generations. Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, ECLT has permanently conserved 18 properties and more than 380 acres.
