Welcome to our families farm dinner. We hope you will join us for this great event. 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 host an amazing farm dinner right in our beautiful apple orchards.
For those of you new to Prevedelli Farm Dinners, we strive to create a unique and intimate experience that showcases our quality organic farm produce.
The dinner itself is composed of five courses. For our first course, we serve appetizers and champagne in our 100-year old farm barn. Then we will have a guided walking tour, with farmers, Sam and Silvia, to see our families orchards and learn the workings of the farm. For the main courses we feature a beautiful Italian-style table right in the middle of our apple orchard over looking the Monterey Bay. Each course will be paired with amazing wines from Hallcrest Vineyards of Felton California, located in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
