Serving as the closing event to the 250th celebrations, the Farm to Table Dinner is scheduled to take place on 14 Oct 2017 from 4:30 - 8:00 pm and will not be your average community dinner.  The Dinner is intended to promote local farms, encourage healthy eating, stimulate our local sustainable food chain and of course; show people how GOOD healthy, local eating can be!  The dinner will showcase the many different meats, vegetables, cheeses and fruits raised in our area and will include Hors d' oeuvres and a Five course, plated dinner. 

We have discounted tickets available to Ashby residents and any unsold tickets after Labor Day will be available to the public.  We are looking to have all food for the event and raffles to be sourced within 20 miles of Ashby, MA.

The event will be rain or shine under cover at the beautiful Ashby Stock Farm and is BYOB.
