Dinners at the Farm is a series of benefit dinners celebrating local food, farms and community. Created in 2007 by Jonathan Rapp, chef and owner of River Tavern Restaurant in Chester, CT and Drew McLachlan, chef and owner of Feast Market in Deep River CT, Dinners at the Farm serves as a vehicle generating awareness of the importance and vitality of our local farming community and the delicious, wholesome and abundant food it provides us. Each dinner is a unique experience held in the very fields from which the evening’s menu is sourced. The menus are spontaneous and bountiful, highlighting the richness of our local traditions of farming and fishing and the often forgotten value of eating fresh, vibrant food that was just harvested by a dedicated farmer you know and trust. The dinners also raise funds for local agricultural and humanitarian non-profit organizations.
