This year we reach a very special milestone. On October 1 we will celebrate our 10th fall dinner event as a “Farm Fare Dinner.” Over the years our dinners have evolved from the original 50 Mile Dinner to the Down Home Dinners. In keeping with our original “roots,” we are returning to a locally sourced dinner theme. The menu, prepared by Chef Rob Handel of Heather Ridge Farms, will feature grass-fed, pastured and Animal Welfare Approved meat, as well as local produce, cheeses, milk and butter. The intent of this event has always been to promote and support agricultural producers as well as generating support to our association. Our dinner committee has also planned some fun surprises for this year’s attendees!
Space is limited this year, so please make your reservations early. Return the Reservation Form along with your check to Cornell Cooperative Extension, 6055 Route 23, Acra, NY 12405 or you can pay online using this link https://reg.cce.cornell.edu/farmfare_210 You can also go to the upper right corner of this page to the "Donate" option.
