MEET YOUR FARMER DINNERS

are a monthly series of dinners that pair farmers and the chefs of rotating local restaurants. The chosen chef prepares the meal using as many of the featured farmer’s products as possible, supplemented by other local ingredients. Diners are treated to a presentation from the featured farmer about his or her farm and the products that were used during the lovingly prepared meal. This program builds farm to chef relationships.
