Here are some quotes on the event from our employees and some attendees:
We sure had a lot of fun for such a soggy, dreary night! With an estimated 1000 guests in attendance, nearly 900 samples were served! I was happy to help educate so many people about the new and improved Morgan’s Farm to Table experience.The grass fed filet mignon, creamy onion risotto and smoked tomato demi-glace worked its magic and helped make some new friends. Winning the first place title for Best Food Item was icing on the cake. It continues to reinforce the sustainability efforts that we are employing at Morgan’s. You have to listen to the customer to make sure you are on track with your business. At the Taste of Lakeville, the customer spoke loud and clear. I can’t wait to participate in next years’ event!!!
Michael Goodman - VP of Food and Beverage Operations
Thank you so much for having your excellent restaurant – Morgan’s – participate in our Rotary’s annual “Taste of Lakeville” fundraiser! It was such a pleasure to see people lined up seven deep at your tent – the food was marvelous – fresh and beautifully prepared – just like every day at Morgan’s. I should know, I eat there often enough!
The “Taste of Lakeville” is a Lakeville treasure – thanks to food vendors like you all at Morgan’s, and to the tremendously supportive Lakeville citizens – we raise more than $100,000 each year, and it all stays in Lakeville! Your participation means that Rotary can provide mentors for middle and high school students; we can support Lakeville’s seniors, and Lakevillians without food, or a roof over their heads. We can provide playgrounds for the handicapped and staff to help local non-profits shelter and strengthen desperate, abused women and children.
Thanks to Morgan’s, and other fine local restaurants, the Rotary is able to give meaningful support to the community we all love. Thank you so much for your participation!

While being somewhat new to the area, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The weather was being uncooperative, and we had A LOT of setup to do. However, upon arrival there was electricity in the air (and not from the weather). I started to get excited! It's hard not to though, when you're serving All Natural Grassfed Tenderloin!! Our Chefs were delicately slicing the Strauss Farms (Franklin, WI) Filet and serving it over a Creamy Onion Risotto that they were making ON THE FLY right there in our tent! The Cream and butter for the Risotto were from Hope Creamery in Hope, MN! Lastly, we topped it with a Smoked Tomato Demi-Glace made with Steve's Hydroponic Tomatoes out of Wells, MN! 3 of the 6 Local farmers we work with, were represented in this offering. Word quickly got around, and before we knew it there was a line of people braving the weather to sample our wares. At the end of it all, we met a bunch of great people, sampled some great food, and received the Judge's choice award for Best Food Item! Thank you Lakeville and everyone involved in Taste of Lakeville for the opportunity and hospitality!! See you next year!
Tony Schwimmer, Morgan's on Nicollet
The 2015 Taste of Lakeville event was a great opportunity for us to showcase what we at Morgan’s Farm to Table truly celebrate. Locally sourced, all natural dairy, cheese, greens, vegetables, beef and pork continues to be our focus. Despite the cool breeze and constant rain, our tidy 10 x 10 piece of real estate at the “Taste” kept us happily serving attendees all evening long. The continual stream of Lakeville and surrounding community residents gave us a great opportunity to shake hands, share laughter and sample them on one of our most delectable offerings. Grass-Fed Filet Mignon, served over a warm bed of creamy, onion Risotto, and finished with a smoked-tomato demi-glace evoked more, “M-m-m-m-mmmm’s,” than I can count. If that wasn’t enough complimentary reaction, the evening was perfectly punctuated by the announcement that Morgan’s farm to table was awarded the “Judge’s Favorite.” I’d like to thank all the Morgan’s employees who helped to make the “Taste” a truly successful experience, and a heartfelt thank you to our regular clientele who stopped by to say, “Hi.”, and, finally, a warm welcome to all the great people I met who I look forward to inviting into our Morgan’s Farm to Table “home.”

The Morgan's Farm to Table concept is amazing, and that is reflected in their excellent food. I'm also really proud to say that the owners reside in Lakeville and are outstanding community members. Morgan's has my full support! Matt Little - Mayor of Lakeville
