A truly unique culinary experience, our Community Table Dinner series provides a deeper look into an ecological food future, fostering a more holistic understanding of the “farm to table” philosophy.

Our Community Table centers upon our central value for a shared ecosystem. Each dinner pairs a renowned chef with a local farmer to collaborate in designing a sustainable meal that tells the story around a distinct agricultural theme. Featuring thoughtful courses paired with inspired selections of wine and beer, Community Table dinners are hosted in our farm courtyard, with a guest list capped at just 50 people. This intimate setting is crafted by design to offer a rich, interactive experience for our guests, one that fosters meaningful conversation and exciting exploration.
