With tickets for our popular Farm Table Dinner Series going on sale at 9 am on Earth Day (Friday, April 22), we want to take a moment to address this year’s increase in ticket prices for our events. Although we have struggled with this decision many times over the years, it was ultimately necessary to increase ticket prices this year to protect the economic viability of our business and the other small, local artisans who we support.
At Green Dirt Farm, it is always our number one priority to provide our customers and community members with exceptional cheese experiences. Whether we are hosting cheese appreciation events, sampling our goods at local farmers’ markets, or collaborating with local chefs to put together our beloved farm table dinners, it is imperative that we offer high quality products and experiences to our guests. We believe in supporting local businesses, and when we work together with local food artisans, we want to make sure that we honor their craft and time with compensation.
When you buy a ticket to one of our Farm Table Dinners, you are making a direct contribution to support small, local food artisans and our local rural communities as well. The benefit of that support is the opportunity to attend a unique five-course meal, featuring Green Dirt Farm products and other locally sourced farm fare. You get to enjoy your one of a kind meal under the stained-glass windows of our gorgeous barn. Your meal is prepared by one of the best chefs in the city, and shared at our farm table with an intimate group of guests. It’s a chance to eat local, be close to the source of your food, and take yourself on a culinary adventure.
We put a lot of thought and care into planning our events and making them happen, and we are incredibly grateful for our community of collaborators, neighbors, and guests. We are so excited to launch this year’s season of dinners and tastings. We hope to see you at one of our spectacular collaborative events!
