Farm Dinner & Art Celebration : September 25th

Blue Sky Farm and Bethany Kramer are teaming up for a locally inspired night to celebrate food and art. There will be a four-course meal prepared with produce grown organically and sustainably by Blue Sky Farm in Villa Hills, KY. Each serving is paired with its own uniquely designed dish made by local ceramicists Bethany Kramer and Tony Bove. When the meal is finished, the dishes are cleaned, and the same set you ate from, valued at $75, is packed up and ready for you to take home that night. Tickets are $100 with part of the proceeds benefiting Slow Food Cincinnati. The event will be held rain or shine on the evening of September 25th at Sunrock Farm in Wilder, KY.
