One look at the menu for the opening event of the Graze at Pineland Farms dinner series, and I was hooked. The dinner series is designed to emphasize community heritage, the farm, and other local producers. Each event begins with a farm tour and includes live music, a cocktail social, and a four-course dinner with farmers and chefs and featuring food that originated within minutes of the tabled. Also included are wine parings. The meal is served in the gardens or under a tent. Dinners are catered by Black Tie Co. The $95 pp price tag also includes tax and gratuity.
