"I feel the respect that each of you gives to the beautiful pigs, and all the plants and trees that you grow. Your farm stands In gratitude to Mother Earth and all her gifts. I loved the evening walk after an amazing meal. Thank you again for bringing us together as a community, and showing us all by your example, we must know how the food on our plates came to be there."

What should I wear?
Our dinners take place outside at Alluvial Farms with a variety of terrain. It may be sunny, muddy or chilly on the day of the event so please dress accordingly and remember to wear comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting a little dust on. It can get colder in the evenings so come prepared with a jacket or sweatshirt to keep you comfortable. There will be beautiful sunset views from the dinner table so we recommend you bring sunglasses and a hat as needed.
In the event of rain guests will still have the option of a farm tour so be sure to check the weather and dress appropriately.
What kinds of dietary restrictions can be accommodated?
We are unable to cater to any severe food allergies or dietary restrictions due to the small nature of our operation.
Is there alcohol at the event? Can I bring my own?
Yes. The ticket price includes either alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage pairings with the multi-course dinner. Once you have purchased tickets we will send you a link to a survey that will ask for your preferences about drink service and other types of accommodations. For your safety, we suggest that you arrange for a designated driver or plan for a driving service to get you home safely.
Outside alcohol will not be permitted.
Are children allowed at the event? Do they need a ticket too?
Yes, children are welcome at this event. We do ask that parents maintain close supervision of their children as there are hazards around the farm and out of respect for other dinner guests.
Children under 6 can share a ticket with their grown up. Ages 7-10 depends on their eating habits. Light eaters can share with their grown up and big eaters will need their own ticket.
Can I bring my pet?
As much as we would love to meet your furry family member, pets are not allowed at these events.
Can Alluvial Farms accommodate my accessibility needs?
