About Our Farm Dinners
We're excited to announce our 2018 Summer Farm Dinner Series with chef Will Ternay. Will has an interesting culinary background from starting as a teenager at Haystack, to attending the Culinary Institute of America, working with chef Bradley Ogden at One Market Place in San Francisco, and was executive chef at Striped Bass in Philadelphia. He has traveled extensively and has worked with Chefs Max Mattes and Tony Lawless in Deer Isle, at the Whale's Rib. We are all anticipating a fun filled and delicious summer as we taste our way through Will's creative take on the "Farm to Table" movement.

For those of you new to Yellow Birch Farm Dinners, we strive to create a unique and intimate experience that couples our quality farm produce and expertly crafted dishes with the sustainability and locality YBF encapsulates. Held in our nineteenth Century post-and-beam barn, guests are surrounded by myriad works of fine art that constitute the Greene Ziner Gallery. Limited to sixteen guests per evening, our dinners foster great conversation and a familial environment. The dinner itself is composed of five courses and prior to the meal, guests are given a short tour of the workings of our farm and studios, which allows them to see exactly how their meal is created and where the ingredients are coming from.
The goal of these dinners is to help sustain and grow Yellow Birch Farm’s role as a local community provider of fine produce and goods, an educational environment for sustainable farming, and as a vibrant example of organic living. Through our educational opportunities, we share the fundamentals of sustainable living with our interns and helpers, and provide exposure to the artistic and creative elements that are integral to our mission. Your participation in these dinners allows us to expand our offerings and our reach. We hope that you enjoy this memorable evening and that it serves as an introduction to a long and bountiful relationship with our farm.
