Come Have Dinner With Us
3rd Annual Farm Dinner
Welcome to our family farm's annual farm dinner. We hope you will join us for this great cause. We started a Prevedelli Farms Scholarship for high school students going to college who are majoring in agriculture. To raise money for the scholarship, we started doing our annual farm dinner.
For those of you new to Prevedelli Farm Dinners, we strive to create a unique and intimate experience that showcases our quality farm produce. The dinner itself is composed of five courses. For our first course, we will have champagne and appetizers in our 100 year old farm barn. Then we will have a walking tour to see our families orchards and learn the workings of our farm.
The tour will be guided by farmer Sam and Silvia (Silvia just won Santa Cruz Farmer of the Year 2016). For the main courses we feature a beautiful Italian style table right in the middle of our apple orchard overlooking Monterey Bay for you to enjoy your dinner. Each course will be paired with amazing wines from Hallcrest Vineyards from Felton California, located within the Santa Cruz Mountains.
It is with great pleasure that we welcome
