2017 Route 1 Farms CSA shareholder tickets are $95 each (see below). General public tickets are $120 each.
This year marks our eighth year of gathering the community to share a meal and evening in our farm fields. Each dinner is a unique experience with local chefs who create menus that are seasonal, creative, mouth watering and straight from our fields. Eating local doesn’t get any better or more local than eating in the fields that the produce came from. We also feature a local winery to showcase what these talented folks are creating here in our community.
Our guest chef for the first dinner will be Stephen Beaumier of Mutari Chocolate in downtown Santa Cruz. Stephen previously worked at Cyrus in Healdsburg, Quince in San Francisco, Noma in Copenhagen and the start up Din, as well as catering many private events. Though we have known and worked with Stephen for a long time, this will be his first farm dinner with Route 1 Farms and we are excited to welcome him to the farm.
Our winemaker will be Richard Alfaro of Alfaro Family Vineyards & Winery. We are happy to welcome Richard back to the farm to pour with us again this year. Richard is a great partner for our dinners and we love having him join us. Not to mention that he makes really good wine!
The evening will start at 4:00 pm with a welcome reception to be followed by a tour of the fields lead by Farmer Jeff Larkey. Jeff will share his knowledge and the history of the land, the wildlife and his time farming there. The tour will end at our dinner site right in the fields along Waddell Creek. It’s a gorgeous spot and we are thrilled to be able to share it with you.
Dinner will be served family style and your ticket price is all inclusive. Vegetarian options will be available. If you are a vegetarian or have food allergies, please let us know (via an email) when you purchase your ticket(s).
