The Good Farm Fund Harvest Picnic will be at BARRA of Mendocino on October 12, 2021 from 4-7 pm. Click here to buy tickets!
Our farm-to-table community dinners are some of the most beloved events around, and this year we’ve designed a new event to take into consideration the realities of living in an ongoing pandemic and everyone’s comfort level with gathering.
Attendees will pre-order their picnic baskets, and can take dinner to go or stay and enjoy their meal on a picnic blanket with live music and a lovely, socially-distanced ambience. The menu will include Mendocino-raised fried chicken, sweet potato biscuits, local beer and wine, and pie for dessert. There will be vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free options as well. There will be a silent auction with in-person and online options, as well as live music and local wine and beer for purchase for those who stay to enjoy their picnics on the lawn with us.
What makes this event special? This community picnic will raise funds for a good cause – the Good Farm Fund, which is on a mission to boost our local food security – and also acts as a beautiful community building event at a time when we could all use more connection in a safe environment. It will be an affordable celebration of the farmers market season and local food and agriculture.
