Dinner on the Farm 2018
We are shaking up our model a bit this year...
This year we are excited to unite multiple restaurants around a food focused theme.
Each dinner will focus on a particular area of the food system (think meat, seafood, native plants) and will feature a local guest who will speak during the tour portion of the evening. Don't worry, you can still choose to take a tour of the farm or learn a bit more about our program if you prefer. The family style meal of the evening will similarly draw from this theme (meat dinner? think steak.)
Huge Thanks to our Farm Dinner Sponsors
About Dinner on the Farm
Each farm dinner at Grow Dat dinner begins with a half hour of cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres followed by a farm tour focusing on our program, growing practices, and the stunning ecology of our growing site. After the farm tour, guests sit down to a beautiful, locally focused meal paired with wine. Come experience the company of our New Orleans community as we connect to the soil beneath our feet and the delicious food on our plates.
