Join us for a farm dinner fundraiser with Libertad!

After a 2-year hiatus, we are bringing back our Farm Dinners! We are pleased to partner with Libertad for this 4 course, sit-down fundraiser dinner served on the farm with produce grown steps from your table!  Chef Mark Mendez from Libertad (formerly of Vera and Carnivale in Chicago) has a special flair with Mexican, Spanish and pan-Latin flavors and will be treating this hyper-locally-grown produce to a trip across the border! Your ticket will include passed appetizers while you explore The Talking Farm’s 2.5-acre urban farm in Skokie, and a sit down, 4-course meal (including dessert), served family-style, prepared by Chef Mendez and his team right on the farm. A true local farm-to-table experience! After dinner, in case you’re still hungry, we’ll wrap up the night with our tradition of s’mores, spirits, and cordials by bonfires.

A portion of your ticket includes a tax-deductible donation to The Talking Farm and supports its urban agriculture educational programs and 2.5-acre urban farm.

$200/person includes beer or wine inclusive of tax+tip. Members receive a 20% discount (please check your email for a special link to buy discounted tickets). Please note: only vegetarians may be accommodated – no other dietary restrictions can be accommodated.
