What to Expect

Enjoy freshly made seasonal cocktails and mocktails in our Sculpture Garden. Pick fresh flowers for your table’s centerpiece in our flower garden. Delight in a seasonally themed dinner served al fresco in the heart of our 40-acre farm.

Organic vegetables and proteins will be harvested from our own farm and prepared by Dundore & Heister, a whole-animal butcher and caterer rooted in Pennsylvania Dutch tradition.

The abundant organic meal will be transported to diners via wagons and served family-style atop beautifully rendered maple farm tables. Organic wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages will be flowing throughout the evening.

As the sun sets, we’ll light a bonfire and gather around while dessert will be served alongside a selection of organic coffee and tea. All guests will walk away with the floral centerpiece they picked earlier in the evening and a sweet thank you from our local bees.

The Historic Farm

The Seasonal Organic Dinners will be held at the historic Rodale Institute Founder's Farm. This 1830 farmstead was acquired by the Rodale family in 1940 to begin initial research on the benefits of regenerative organic agriculture.
