HARVEST DINNER

THANK YOU!

This year's Harvest Dinner was an incredible success, and it would not have been possible without the support of so many individuals and organizations.

Thank you to all of our volunteers for helping to create a magical evening, and to our guests for helping raise funds that will enable more people in need to have access to food grown by North Carolina family farmers.  

Special thanks to our...

Harvest Dinner

October 29, 2017 | RambleRill Farm

Jacob Boehm of Snap Pea Underground is bringing his culinary chops to bear, drawing on the autumn bounty of local farms to create for us an array of seasonally-inspired dishes.

Start the evening with a cocktail and a stroll around the grounds of RambleRill Farm. Stake your claim on carefully curated silent auction packages before settling in for a family-style meal. Up the experience by opting for wine pairings selected by sommelier Michael Klinger.  

All money raised from this event will benefit Farmer Foodshare’s programming, bringing more fresh, nutritious food to students, families, and others in our community, while helping local family farmers succeed.

Tickets to the event are SOLD OUT -- but you can still join us as a volunteer. More information about volunteer positions and shifts available here or at the link below. 

Frequently asked questions

When should I arrive?

Plan to arrive between 4:30-5:00 p.m. so you have time to enjoy a cocktail, take a stroll through the farm's grounds, and join the bidding in our silent auction. Dinner will be indoors beginning at 6:00 pm. No printed tickets are needed; please just check in with us at registration upon arrival. 

How do I get to RambleRill Farm?

The farm is located at 913 Arthur Minnis Road, Hillsborough, NC 27278. Note that a nearby bridge is undergoing repairs, so routes via I-40 will require a rather lengthy detour. We suggest you map your route ahead of time to minimize surprises.

What should I wear?

We're calling it business casual + fun.  A little better than jeans, but not cocktail -- we'll be on a farm, after all!  Dress warmly enough that you can enjoy the grounds in the afternoon, but know that both the silent auction and the dinner will be indoors. You will be walking on gravel and grass. A coat is a must for the return trip back to your car. 

So we won't be dining outside?

No, fall finally arrived, and it will be a little too chilly for that. All the major activities -- cocktails, silent auction and dinner -- will be indoors to keep everyone dry and toasty.

What about parking?

Onsite parking will be available in an adjacent field. There will be a short walk on a gravel driveway from the parking area to the event site. Should anyone in your party have challenges with mobility, please notify a parking attendant.

Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?
Let us know. We can accommodate almost any health-related dietary restriction as long as we know about it at least a week in advance.
