About Grow Dat Dinners on the Farm

Grow Dat Dinners on the Farm begin with a half hour of cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres followed by tours focusing on our program, growing practices, food systems, and the stunning ecology of our growing site. After the tours, guests sit down to a beautiful, locally focused meal paired with wine by the bayou. Break bread with us and the New Orleans community as we connect to the soil beneath our feet and the delicious food on our plates. 


Huge Thanks to our Farm Dinner Sponsors



Farm Dinner FAQ

How does seating work?
Everyone will arrive at the table and find their seats at the same time. If you are a group of 4 or more, please alert Cassie Reeves at Cassie@growdatyouthfarm.org ahead of time so that we can ensure your space together. 

What if it rains?
This event will be rain or shine. In the event of rain, we will shorten the tour and provide a tent for dining. In extreme weather conditions, Dinners on the Farm may be rescheduled.

What if I have a dietary restriction?
If you have a dietary restriction, please let us know in advance so that we can try to accommodate your restriction. We cannot always guarantee accommodation, but we will do our best!

Are tickets refundable?
Tickets are not refundable, but they are transferable. If you gift them or sell them to another party please alert us to the updated reservation name. 

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
This event is not designed for young children. Please contact Cassie Reeves at Cassie@growdatyouthfarm.org if you have any questions.
