July 14, 2019, Dinner on the Farm to feature Urban Roots, Saint Dinette and Tattersall Distilling

Urban Roots' mission is to cultivate and empower youth through nature, healthy food, and community. I'm always impressed with the youth from Urban Roots. They do a fantastic job of bringing their locally grown produce to the Mill City Farmers Market

This summer, they'll be the featured farm at the Sunday, July 14 Dinner on the Farm. Attendees will enjoy an afternoon of local music, beverages crafted by Tattersall Distilling, and a feast created by the Saint Dinette Culinary Team and grown on the very farm you're visiting. Tickets are $75 for adults (21+), $50 for teens (11-20) and free for children 10 and under.

What to expect

At Dinner on the Farm events, guests are welcomed to the farm, shown where to place their picnic blanket, mingle and enjoy a local beverage and passed appetizers. About a half an hour into the evening, there will be an introductory talk and guided tours of the host farm. While guests get to know the host farmer, the featured chef prepares a feast onsite with fresh ingredients grown in the very fields you're touring. The tour will end back at the farm dinner area, where you will be invited up to serve yourself a plate from the communal table and bring it back to your blanket to enjoy. Spend the rest of the afternoon sharing a delicious meal with friends and family and listening to live music from the farm band. End the celebration with a sunset bonfire and conversation with a community of like-minded, adventurous eaters.
I've had the pleasure of attending one of these events a few years ago - it was absolutely wonderful!
