Experience Feast for the Farms (at Home)

Jul 15, 2020

This July we are doing Feast for the Farms a little differently

Every year in July, Feast for the Farm is a fun-filled evening at Casey Farm in Saunderstown, R.I. This fundraiser celebrates local agriculture and raises support for Historic New England’s Rhode Island farms. Although we can’t throw a party this summer, we are still celebrating the farms and their role in our communities.

Feast for the Farms 2020

We will be serving three “courses” this year: weekly emails that highlight the vibrancy of the farms and offer farm-fresh recipes for you to enjoy. You can sign up to receive emails to help create the experience at your home and support the farms. You will receive photographs, videos, and farm-fresh recipes from Russell Morin Catering. The recipes, like nasturtium shortbread cookies and squash blossom risotto, are designed around ingredients grown at Casey Farm.

Proceeds benefit all the work at Casey Farm and Watson Farm, from important preservation projects for historic farm buildings to the care of our animals, continued farming for healthy and organic produce, and our robust education programs. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to support everything happening at the farms this year. Learn more about how you can support our farms.
