VERNON, N.J. — Meadowburn Farm, a historic garden and working farm located in the Warwick and Vernon Valley, will host an Autumn Harvest Farm Dinner to celebrate the bounty of the Vernon and Warwick Valley on Saturday, Sept. 26. Drinks and garden tour begin at 5:30, with dinner at 6:30 p.m.

The dinner will feature New York City chefs partnering with area farms to cook up a seasonal, Indian-inspired feast with local meats and produce and freshly baked breads from Meadowburn’s wood burning ovens.

Meadowburn’s gardens, originally created in the 1920s by renowned gardener and writer Helena Rutherford Ely, have recently been restored to their original splendor and feature rare heirloom dahlias alongside abundant perennial horticulture. The working farm, at one time a model dairy operation, now houses a state of the art cheese making facility and cheese caves, along with dairy cows, farm animals and beautifully restored barns.

Tickets are $75 each and attendees must be at least 21 years of age. To purchase tickets, go to http://meadowburnfarmdinner.bpt.me/.
