Harvest Dinner

October 29, 2017 | RambleRill Farm

Dive into fall with a sumptuous meal under the stars.

Jacob Boehm of Snap Pea Underground is bringing his culinary chops to bear, drawing on the autumn bounty of local farms to create 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.

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 begin 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?

Please dress comfortably for the season, bearing in mind that we will be dining outside, and you will be walking on gravel and grass. There will be heaters during dinner, but once the sun descends, it can be chilly, so please plan accordingly.

What if it rains?

We'll move into RambleRill's event space within the barn. 

What about parking?

Onsite parking will be available. 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.
