Come reap the best of the October harvest with a delicious dinner sourced from The Many Hands Peace Farm at The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center. We partner with other local, cemical-free, regenerative farm neighbors . The theme for today's dinner is
"Traditional Farm Techniques and Lifestyles from around the World"
- The tour will begin by walking through the different parts of our farm and harvesting some ingredients for your dinner in our vegtable fields. We will then forage for a few wild edibles on our Food Forest paths. We begin by exploring the seasonal delicacies found in the wild as well as in our farm fields, understanding how to identify and prepare these wild treats.
- Shortly afterwards guests can taste much of what they found during the foray in a rustic 5-course Forest-to-Table meal harvested and prepared by our very own farmer-chefs. Live music will begin and conclude the evening
- During dinner guests will have the opportunity to chat with farm staff about farm happenings and browse the many handcrafted products we prepare and sell at nearby markets. Bring cash or card if you would like to purchase gifts.
- All proceeds from the dinners support the operation of Many Hands Peace Farm, which serves as a fundamental piece to The Mountain's overall commitment to sustainability and ethical land stewardship.
