Join RVGA and local farmers in celebrating the beginning of the growing season!

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


Join us on June 19 for a take-home celebratory spring feast to acknowledge the beginning of the growing season, the abundance of the Rondout Valley, and - most of all - the farmers who went above-and-beyond to keep our farms vibrant and working despite the challenges of the past year.

We are pleased to offer a dinner-basket-for-two presented in a traditional wooden produce basket and accompanied by locally-produced beer, hard cider, or non-alcoholic mixer, as well as some fun surprises! (see menu below)

It's the perfect way to: celebrate Father's Day, treat yourself to a night off from cooking, have a date night, get a break from your usual take-out, have a picnic with some friends...

And, of course, you'll be supporting all the great work of the RVGA.

If you are unable to take advantage of this yourself, or want to buy an additional basket, please consider purchasing a Sponsor-a-Farmer ticket, which will allow us to provide a dinner basket to a RVGA farmer member, free of charge. It's a thoughtful and very appreciated way to show your thanks for the work our farmers do for the community!
