The Creque Dam Farm staff invites the public to its Slow Down Dinner Experience, featuring six courses of their certified organic produce and locally-sourced meat or fish. This month it will be celebrating the Spring Equinox, and the equality of day and night. The next Slow Downs are Saturday, March 20 and Sunday, March 21.
The dinner is by suggested donation, $60 per person. An additional gratuity goes to support the staff of farmers that will serve the supper. Donations have been instrumental in the farm’s ability to pursue its four pillars: education, environment, sustainability and community.
All guests should arrive at 6 p.m.; the dinner is BYOB. Directions to the farm are listed on the Web site, and if people have any dietary restrictions, they should let Creque Dam Farm know when they make their reservation.
Reservations can be made on the online market: vi.locallygrown.net
