Dinner on the Farm – Buy Tickets

Tuesday, July 14th, from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. – Dinner to be served starting at 7:00pm

Spend a delightful evening on the farm enjoying a wonderful dinner featuring farm-grown veggies prepared by Jon Orren, former professional chef and current teacher at the Newton South culinary arts program. Jon will be supported by a team of students from the culinary arts programs and the Sustainable Agriculture Project.

Enjoy the food, wine and beer, lively conversation, and relaxing music by the Dixie Butterhounds string band, all while watching the sun set over the farm’s beautiful landscape. The Dinner on the Farm promotes discussion of urban agriculture and brings together people who love local produce and a great time.

Dinner on the Farm has traditionally been an opportunity to laud individuals who’ve given their time, energy, money, and ideas to further the mission of the farm. This year the spotlight is on all the amazing people who help make a difference. Newton Community Farm is in the midst of a successful capital fundraising campaign, an effort separate from and in addition to our annual operating needs. We will take a bit of time out of the evening to celebrate recent accomplishments made possible by the campaign, and update the group on future goals. Come enjoy local produce and help us celebrate our farm’s future.

Price per ticket for the general public is $65; Friends of the Farm receive a special price of $55. The ticket price covers the cost of food and provides a contribution to the NCF education program.

Wine and beer will be sold at a cash bar.

Registration closes on July 8.
