Dress Code is Farm Smart Attire

Farm Smart attire can be defined as comfortable cocktail attire with a farm flair. This could mean jeans or khakis, untucked shirt, a blazer or denim shirt, a dress or skirt. For ease of walking on grassy surfaces, flat closed-toe shoes such as boots, flats or wedge heels are recommended. Because we will be out on the farm, please choose attire that is appropriate for the temperature, and please know that mud is farm-chic!


Please RSVP below to confirm attendance for you and a guest at our invite-only event. No ticket purchase necessary.
