Dinners at the Farm
A Dinners at the Farm experience ought to be required eating for those who not only love food, but care about its origins. Since 2007, a team of dedicated chefs, farmers and volunteers have organized a yearly series of multi-course gourmet meals, prepared with produce picked just hours before - and mere feet from the dinner table - at each host farm.
Dinners at the Farm celebrates Connecticut's rich tradition of local agriculture. The events are hosted "as a way to generate awareness of the importance and vitality of our local farming community and the delicious, wholesome and abundant food it provides us."
The event series also helps raise funds for local agricultural and humanitarian nonprofits, including Connecticut Farmland Trust, Slow Food Connecticut, CitySeed, Shoreline Soup Kitchen and Pantries, Working Lands Alliance and the Stanton Davis Homestead.
