I LOVE HARVEST DINNERS: Early Morning Farm


There are so many things to love about Ithaca and our surrounding areas. Yoga studios on every corner, fresh local produce scattered about and now I can add the HARVEST DINNER EXPERIENCE.

What is Healthy Food For All?
Healthy Food for All provides households with limited income in Tompkins County to access of a variety of fresh, locally grown produce at a price they can afford through Solidarity (subsidized) Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares. Participants can also take advantage of classes, workshops events and resources to support their healthy lifestyle choices.

(You can buy tickets for the next harvest dinner here)

What is a Harvest Dinner?
A unique team of farmers, winemakers & chefs using the freshest ingredients from the host farm & local specialty producers.
The delicious food is paired with a local vineyard or brewer. You will hear stories of the farmers, winemakers, brewmasters, producers and chefs themselves throughout the evening. 100% of the proceeds subsidize CSA shares for low-income families4 tickets sold = 1 family with access to a season of fresh produce!

My Experience
There is nothing like slipping on a sundress and throwing on some cowgirl boots and heading out to the farm for a lovely evening with friends. You are greeted with warm happy smiles then escorted to a tent in the middle of a farm. The table is set to perfection. Fresh flowers in metal buckets, candle light, music in the background- just lovely. The food, the wine, the company... it just does not get any better. The food was provided by local farms, the talent behind the food was amazing, truly the best meal I have ever had. I will make this apart of my Summer routine from here on out. Hope to see you there :)
