Please join Veggielution and Hay Market’s Chef/Owner, Joe Cirone, for an unforgettable farm-to-table culinary experience. We invite you to enjoy a warm Summer evening dining on our community farm. Feast on an overflowing plate of farm fare, harvested by Veggielution volunteers in the fields around you. After dinner, treat yourself to an evening of live music, barn dancing, and delectable desserts. Dig deep and eat well. All proceeds benefit the programs of the nonprofit Veggielution’s Community Farm. Tax-deductible tickets are $100 each.
