The College of Central Florida Foundation’s annual Taste of Ocala will have a new twist this year at a new location: CF’s newest campus Vintage Farm. “Taste at the Farm” will be on Saturday, March 2, from 6:30-9 p.m., at 4020 S.E. Third Ave, Ocala.
In 2016, the college received its largest gift on record from the Vintage Farm family. The gift of the 103-acre Vintage Farm has allowed CF to expand Equine Studies and Agribusiness programs to include a bachelor’s specialization in equine studies and plans are underway to begin a one-year cattle management certificate program.
Ocala’s favorite “food and philanthropy” event will feature live music and samplings from local restaurants. Guests will enjoy food, wine and craft beer tastings from Braised Onion, Brick City Southern Kitchen & Whiskey Bar, Cakes Come True, Chefs of Napoli IV, Eaton’s Beach Sandbar & Steam Shack, Edible Arrangements, Fox Den Tavern, Harry’s Seafood, Bar & Grill, The Mojo Grill & Catering Co., and Tony’s Sushi & Japanese Steakhouse.
Since its inception in 1989, Taste of Ocala has raised more than $1.4 million for College of Central Florida student scholarships.
