Our events are a demonstration of community at its best. We started the series as a prototype for collaboration in the community, bringing together farmers, chefs, breweries and non-profits to create magical evenings of connection on the farm. Since 2015, we've raised nearly $25,000 for local non-profit partners through our memorable farm dinners. The Farm Dinner Series is a demonstration of what we can do for your business or non-profit.



This annual beer dinner and silent auction has raised close to ten thousand dollars for The Growing Project since it was started in 2012. The dinner features up to 8 local breweries and local chefs serving a multi-course dinner paired with beers to 200 guests.

  • At White Balcony we celebrate genuine connections on a daily basis, like laughing over an inappropriate card. There's nothing quite like sharing a meal to bring people together. Being part of that is pretty magical.
