On Sunday, October 11th, 2020 from 4-7pm, the Josie Porter Farm hosted a 4 course, farm-to-table dinner featuring an array of farm-sourced foods paired with locally crafted beer and hard cider with live music throughout the night.
Pulling from the bounty of Josie Porter Farm and their family of growers and producers, chefs Mehgan Carrega and Rosedanie Cadet have designed a well-rounded and artisanal menu (found below), showcasing the late season harvest and the spirit of Oktoberfest celebrations. The four courses will consist of soup, small plates/tapas, main course, and dessert - all organic, sustainably sourced, and gluten free (with the exception of dessert.)
The Beer and Cider:
Each course has been carefully paired with a select craft beer or hard cider with the help of the brewmasters at Downriver Brewing Co. and Banters Hard Cidery of Stroudsburg, PA. This 5 oz. pairing of beer or cider per course is included in the cost, with additional crowlers and cans available for purchase from Downriver.
Josie Porter Farm’s Jackie Dudley and accompanist Brynn Withey will kick off the evening with an assortment of classical trumpet and piano duets, and then SheilaMark, who performs with a Sano accordion that sounds like no other, will play a mix of Jazz, Blues, Rock, Zydeco and of course German music.
Price per person is $70. A total of 30 tickets will be available to allow for safe social distancing and a more intimate dining experience. Tickets are sold on a first come/first serve basis, and are not secured until payment is processed.
Physical tickets will be for sale at the Josie Porter Farm store during their business hours:
Wednesdays from 3-6pm
Fridays from 2-6pm
Saturdays from 9am-3pm
And if still available, at the Open Air, Open Mic event on Wednesday, October 7th from 6-10pm in the farm store.
To place your ticket order over the phone with a credit card, please call the farm store during their regular business hours at (570) 992-5731.
At the time of purchase, please include all members of your party (including yourself!), and indicate how many members of your party would like the vegetarian option vs. the meat option.
Masks must be worn upon entry, until seated, and whenever guests leave their table. Thank you for your cooperation.
Tables will be carefully spaced at least 6 feet apart to ensure a comfortable and safe dining experience, and you will only be seated with members of your own party.
This is a rain or shine event with outdoor, covered tables near the stage in the wide open, serene setting at Josie Porter Farm, nestled in beautiful Cherry Valley.
Farm tours and meet and greets with the farmers at Josie Porter Farm and the chefs will take place throughout the evening.
