One of our favorite yearly events is approaching. Every year, Massaro Farm in Woodbridge, CT, hosts a fabulous dinner and Denise creates and executes the menu. There's wine and beer, an incredible silent auction, and best of all…the backdrop of this dinner is the beautiful farm!
Massaro Community Farm is a nonprofit, certified-organic farm on a 57-acre parcel of land operated collaboratively between the Town of Woodbridge and a Board of Directors comprised of local citizens. The property was deeded to the town by the Massaro Family, who had farmed the land since 1916 (they just celebrated 100 years!) They grow and produce enough to supply a 200-member CSA, multiple weekly Farmers Markets and select restaurants (ZINC and Kitchen ZINC-to name a few). They also donate 10% of what they grow to local hunger relief agencies every year. Last year, they donated 8,000 pounds of produce and since 2010, they’ve donated more than 43,000 pounds! That’s a pretty incredible accomplishment to grow and supply all those places with organic produce.
Massaro Farm offers educational courses throughout the year. They’ve held beekeeping workshops, summer camps, sustainability workshops, and also Dinner on the Farm. The Dinner on the Farm event is more than just coming for food and drink. Walk around the farm and explore on your own or take a tour with Farmer Steve and listen as explains their farming process.
Dinner on the Farm will sell out, as it does every year. Be sure to get your tickets now! It’s a wonderful night to be a part of. Here’s a little peek at the menu for the evening.
