2016 Farm to Fork Fundraiser Dinner
Again this year we are collaborating with Krista Maloney, Medway resident, Medway Community Farm CSA member, gourmet chef, and owner of Sweet Pea's Catering, to create a fresh and fabulous event that will highlight the delectable potential of the summer's bounty.
The evening will include passed appetizers, beers provided by Peak Organic Brewery, wine, family style meal, live music, and a dessert buffet.
Linger over s’mores around the fire.
Held among the old apple and beech trees on our farm, just steps from the field where the produce we will be serving is growing, the setting provides a romantic and nostalgic feeling that is not to be missed. Come to feel inspired (and satisfied) by the possibility of food and community, and support our education and hunger relief mission.
This is a night of indulgence that you can feel really good about...invite friends, family, neighbors.

6:00-10:00 pm at Medway Community Farm

It is regrettable that someone took the drop safe from the Medway Community Farm stand. We have reported the incident to the Medway Police Department and are cooperating fully with their investigation.
We remain steadfast in our commitment to meeting our goals of serving our community, providing food and education.
We are very grateful for the continued strong support that we receive from our community each and every day.
