Farm-Raiser Dinner 2013

Join Chefs Ana Sortun and Barbara Lynch, Mixologist John Gertsen, and the Siena Farms' team to support the purchase of the Farm's largest, most fertile, and most cherished parcel of farmland here in Sudbury. This 26-acre set of APR*-protected fields is now ours to farm for generations – with your support!

This unforgettable night of celebration will include cocktails in the fields themselves, live music, and a multi-course feast from the fields with wine pairings in our greenhouse, at the peak of our 2013 harvest season.

All proceeds from our 2013 Farm-Raiser Dinner will be used toward this farmland purchase, which we successfully closed on at 10am, July 18th, 2013. We've been anticipating and preparing for this opportunity for over three years, but your contribution now will play a pivotal role in making this historic transaction viable for Siena Farms.

Can’t make it to the Farm-Raiser Dinner, but still want to help? Please consider supporting this effort through a purchase of a Farmland Farm-Share or a Siena Farms Market-Card.

*APR = Agricultural Preservation Restriction. The farmland we just purchased is protected by one of the first APR’s in the state, which means it can never be developed for any purpose besides agriculture. Click here to read this parcel’s APR.
