Now in its ninth year, Dinners at the Farm announces the return of its open-air, fundraiser dinners at White Gate Farm in East Lyme and Barberry Hill Farm in Madison. Guests will savor six course feasts prepared with organically grown vegetables that’s absolutely fresh and seasonal at the moment––and all cooked and served outside right alongside the fields from which it came.
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.
I consider dinners at any farm to be the ne plus ultra of local food experiences. Food is picked that day from the farm, then the chef and his team create a menu that lets the ingredients’ freshness and flavor shine. It’s an occasion you’ll likely never forget, so bringing good friends is highly recommended.
