Description

A Farm Celebration and Local Food Feast

Wheelhouse will return to the Northampton Community Farm for another glorious 4-course gourmet dinner sourced from local farms, featuring those we lease land to and others who sell at our Tuesday Market. Arrive on time for a short guided tour of our 290-plot Community Garden, Giving Garden, and Sawmill Herb Farm with Grow Food Northampton Executive Director, Clem Clay. (Check out our blog post and the Hampshire Daily Gazette's article on our June, 2017, dinner!)

BYOB: No alcohol will be served, but you are welcome to bring your own beverage.

The Setting

The Northampton Community Farm was established in 2011 when Grow Food Northampton purchased 120 acres of protected farmland in the heart of Florence. Most land is leased to several farmers, but we also manage a large communty garden and a Giving Garden that grows tons of organic produce for soup kitchens and food pantries. Guests will see all parts of this operation and its gorgeous setting on a short walk before dinner.

Many thanks to Northampton Rental Center for sponsoring the event by providing a tent if weather requires it!
