Yew Dell Garden’s Farm To Table Dinner


Don’t miss this second annual event! Last year’s Farm to Table Dinner was a smashing success and sold out quickly. Kathy Cary of Lily’s will turn a harvest of locally-produced meats, cheeses, produce and wines into a fabulous feast. We’ll have on hand the farmers responsible for growing and producing all the ingredients, giving you a chance to meet the farmers and gardeners who produce our food. Come support our local farmers and enjoy an outstanding evening amidst the exquisite gardens of Yew Dell.
