Gather with old friends and meet new ones; nourish your body and soul; and support a local, environmentally friendly cause at Friday Nights at the Farm in Green Valley. The event happens every second Friday night now through October at the corner of Green Valley Road and Vintage Lane.
Nestled at the base of the iconic, oak-covered hills that adorn Green Valley is a protected area dedicated to preserving the rich agricultural way of life.
For the past seven years, the Green Valley Agricultural Conservancy has been working to celebrate and perpetuate the tradition of the working landscapes that have characterized Green Valley for over 150 years with Friday Nights at the Farm. This collaborative celebrates the prosperity of food that is grown and harvested here and in the greater Solano area.
From savoring food harvested at the peak of freshness to meeting the people who grow and prepare your food, there are countless reasons to attend Friday Nights at the Farm.
Besides the live music and delicious fare, the event helps to connect the community to the food, and the people who grow, produce, and cook it.
The Conservancy’s long-term goal is to preserve the rural feeling of Green Valley and support a regional farming system that focuses on how the food is grown or raised; the way it’s harvested, processed and packaged; and where it’s sold.
Join local farmers, brewers and musicians, for a casual evening under the oaks to enjoy good food, wine, beer, music, and community. Meet participants such as David Williams of Port Costa’s Bull Valley Roadhouse, Doug Stonebreaker of Prather Ranch, Sarah and Frank Lindemann of Mason Ranch, Justine Kelly from Sun Basket, Louise Yarbrough from Yarbrough Family Vineyards, and Johan Smit of Hidden Star Orchards.
Mark your calendars! Friday Nights at the Farm in 2017 are June 9, July 14, August 11, September 8, and October 3 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
