When: Sat., May 16, 5:30-8:30 p.m. 2015
I’m excited about this one, and not just because my friend and roommate puts the thing together. If you don’t know anything about Tyner Pond Farm, this would be a great opportunity to go check out a really cool agricultural project. Owner and former Exact Target founder Chris Baggot has set up an pasture-fed animal farm that uses no pesticides, chemical fertilizers or GMO feed. He feeds his animals the grains raised by his neighbors, and the meat can be purchased for home delivery or as a fantastic sandwich or hot dog at The Mug in Greenfield. Baggot is also an excellent spokesperson for the small farm business, and he’s taken to the farm’s facebook page to talk about everything from GMOs to organic certification. This dinner is going to be quite a bit different than their normal set up, taking place on a Saturday, with farm tours, lots of families present and a barbecue-style service rather than a formal seated dinner. Ticket purchase doesn’t include beer, but there will be beer available for purchase on-site.
