The Ranch at Las Colinas, is celebrating its 5th year anniversary with its annual Farm to Fork Showcase from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Mon., Nov. 18.

This is the fourth year of the Farm to Fork event. They have invited the farmers, ranchers, fishermen, bakers, and other food and drink suppliers to introduce their products to loyal patrons of the restaurant.

The Ranch’s spacious Porch will be transformed to resemble a farmer’s market as the suppliers show off everything from herbs and honey to fresh eggs and live animals and mingle with the public, who will be treated with complimentary sips and samples. A raffle will be taking place giving guests the chance to win wine and cigar packages, as well as a VIP dinner to The Ranch.

“Farm to Fork is one of the best annual events we throw,” said Judd Fruia, Director of Operations of The Ranch, “This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the farmers and vendors who work so hard every year to provide for us the best products in the state.”

Highlights will include complimentary wagyu sliders from A Bar N Ranch in Sherman, bee honey from Round Rock Honey, freshly churned ice cream from Henry’s Ice Cream, beer samples from Franconia Brewing Company in McKinney and more.

“We love giving guests an opportunity to meet the vendors behind our gourmet Texas cuisine,” Fruia says, “There’s no better way to celebrate our 5th birthday than by celebrating with them!”

The Ranch at Las Colinas is located at 857 West John Carpenter Freeway, Irving, Texas 75039. For more information visit www.theranchlc.com or call 972-506-7262.
