What is included in the costs of gatherings...?

Our gatherings are hosted outside if weather permits and if inclement weather in a tent. These suppers are meant to be a community dining experience shared around common long tables while engaging conversation. All Gatherings include a  a short presentation from our host farmers, and a unique menu created by our award winning chef, and non alcoholic beverages. A ticketing service fee and sales tax will not be included. Our events are normally three to four hours. Please check each event, as some may vary of farmers and guest speakers.

How do I make a reservation?

We release ticket sales three months in advance on our website. You can sign up for our mailing list, as well as follow our social media for upcoming gatherings and workshops. Tickets can be purchased through our website for the events of your choosing. There are no refunds on purchased tickets, although they can be transferred to someone else. Please contact us 24 hours prior to event if you transfer your tickets. Advanced payment is required to hold a reservation.  If you are making reservations for a party of four or more, please be sure to indicate when you purchase tickets, the parties names that will be joining your group. Be advised that tickets sell quickly so be sure to purchase your tickets when dates are released. We will have a waiting list for sold out gatherings.

Do you accommodate dietary restrictions?

We do accommodate reasonable restrictions. Please inform us of any dietary restrictions/allergies when purchasing your tickets. Also upon check in, please inform your server as you are seated to your table. 

Are Children allowed?

Out of respect for your own experience and that of our other guests, we do not allow children under 18 at our gatherings.

Are Dogs Allowed?

Although we consider them a part of the family, no pets will be allowed at our events.  

Service dogs are a exception.

What is the recommended dress for your Gatherings?

Please dress accordingly and remember to wear appropriate shoes. You can dress up or be casual, whatever your most comfortable wearing. It can get cold at night, even after a warm day, so please come prepared with a jacket or blanket. Bring bug spray if they like you more than the food.  Hat and sunglasses are appropriate on our open-air gatherings. 

What is your cancellation and refund policy?

Due to the nature of our events, no refunds will be given for cancellations by us or you, you may apply your ticket purchase to another event if cancelled by us due to weather.

 

Transfer of tickets

However, if you cannot attend the dinner, you are welcome to transfer your tickets to someone else. Please contact us with the guest’s information at least 24 hours prior to the event or tell the guests using your reservation to give your name at arrival. Our Facebook page is a good place to post tickets if you cannot attend an event; people often go there looking to buy or sell last minute seats. Transfer of funds for your tickets is your responsibility.

 

Are all your host farms certified organic?
No, not all are certified organic farms. When it comes to food, for us, local trumps organic. Wherever possible, we choose local organic produce to use, but if organic is unavailable from a local farm, we will choose produce from a local farm that is not certified organic, but uses responsible growing practices. The dairy products and meat are not organic. The meat we purchase from other producers, are all free-range, and humanely raised.

Do you host private parties and catering?

We do! Allow us to host your next private party! Please inquire through our contact us 

page for a customized package from two hundred guests to an intimate table for two.

What forms of payment do you accept?
You can use any major credit card (Visa or MasterCard). Cash or check orders cannot be processed. There are no refunds on purchased tickets, although they can be transferred to someone else. Please contact us 24 prior to event if you transfer your tickets. Advanced payment is required to hold a reservation. If you are making reservations for a party of four or more, please be sure to indicate when order tickets.

When will we know what is on the menu for our event?

Our chef works with the freshest seasonal products that our host farmers offer for that week.  Menus will be emailed 5-10 days before the gathering and you can advise at that time of any dietary restrictions by emailing us as well as making servers aware upon arrival at our table. Confirmed guests will receive an email with directions to the farm, helpful hints on farm attire, and all finalized dinner details. After making a reservation, please make sure to allow emails from us in your spam settings, so as not to miss further communication from us.

 

Do you take reservations for larger parties?
Yes we do, however there is no assigned seating. If you have a large party and want to sit together, please let us know when you purchase tickets , we will need the names of each guest in your group.
