It’s August already and time to think about how you want to spend your last weeks of summer. Have you gotten through your summer bucket list? If you don’t have one, or have already completed it, here are five things to do before the summer ends that will maximize your enjoyment of the local harvest and beautiful weather. This is the time of year when farms are bursting with corn, tomatoes, eggplant, summer squash, beans, cucumbers, peppers and more.
Farm dinners remain so popular that the summer 2015 season is seeing a reprise of many of last year’s events. Whether you’re planning a night out with your significant other, a friend, or a large group, reserve your seat right away because tickets go fast. The Millstone Farm “Farm to Fork” Series is already sold out and just a handful of tickets remain for Outstanding in the Field dinners at The Hickories and Waldingfield Farm.
Farm dinners are all the rage, and with good reason. They provide guests with a unique opportunity to feast on multi-course meals right at the source, outdoors, with a community of likeminded people. Many dinners include a farm tour led by the farmer, a great way to learn the story of the family growing your food that evening. Grab a few friends and set a date to spend a magical evening together at a local farm. Tickets go fast so please reserve your seats early.
