Farm dinners. You should definitely do them.
I’ve seen many a dreamy photo from farm dinners held in the field with twinkly lights and have always wanted to attend one. The idea of eating a meal made with veggies grown from the very farm you’re sitting on is as close to farm-to-table as you can get.
Unless you actually live on a farm and eat what you grow, farm-to-table can be difficult to achieve. It’s more like farm-to-truck-to-store-to-cart-to-car-to-fridge-to-table, haha!
Adding to the list of things I love about Our Table – they do farm field dinners in the Summer!
That in itself is fun, but add in the fact that their featured Chef is Joshua McFadden from Ava Gene’s and you know you’re in for a treat. I’m not sure when or how their partnership with Ava Gene’s / Roman Candle Baking Co. started, but let’s just thank our lucky stars that it did!
Here are a “few” photos from the dinner I attended in July. It featured wines from Pete’s Mountain Vineyard and included a farm tour, followed by a meal to remember! And more wine!!
Their last dinner of the season is coming up next Saturday, 9/26 – get tickets here – it will feature Chef Joshua McFadden from Ava Gene’s, and wine from Durant Vineyards. Trust me, you won’t be sorry!!
Don’t believe me? Check out last October’s USA Today article: “10 Best: Places to dine down on the farm”.
Who else is with me on the farm dinner love bandwagon wheelbarrow?!!
(The fun legal disclosure: This September is membership month at Our Table and I’m partnering with them for a blog series sharing my co-op story and how they help me eat local. I am receiving a small discount on purchases I make, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. If I didn’t genuinely love this place I would not be telling you about it.
