Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled.

Farmer John’s Plot
Farm to Table Fundraiser Dinner
August 23rd, 2014 at 5pm

Farmer John’s Plot Farm to Table Dinner will feature a multi-course meal of organic produce, meats, eggs and maple syrup exclusively from our farm.  There will also be a tasting of local wines, live music and a tour of their CSA gardens.  The fundraiser dinner will take place next to our CSA gardens, in the beautiful barn at 18 Stonlea Lane in Dublin.  Please join them for this wonderful meal of their harvest put together by local caterer Aubrey Saxton (The Saxy Chef).

They are asking for a minimum donation of $79 per ticket.  The money raised goes to support donations of organic produce to low income families (through the River Center in Peterborough), our Future Farmer Training program and our non-profit mission.  If you have already made a donation to Farmer John’s Plot this year that can be used towards your tickets.  For tickets and more information contact John at farmerjohnsplot@gmail.com or 603-289-5927.
