Harvest Tasting

Enjoy an evening of good eating from the bountiful harvest of the Eden Hall Campus farm, and take a twilight tour of the agricultural techniques that make this site unique.

Sit down to a plated, five-course meal that features produce harvested directly from the Eden Hall Campus organic garden, fields and greenhouse, and cared for and grown by Falk School of Sustainability faculty and students.

What makes our produce organic? Every last leaf, root and fruit is grown from organically-certified seeds, without petrochemical or synthetic insecticides, herbicides, or fungicides. PA Certified Organic approves our methods, and we complete the three-year-long USDA organic certification process this fall!

Reservations are $100 per person and include a campus tour showcasing the sustainable agriculture of Eden Hall Campus farm, a five-course menu using produce from the farm, local wine and beer pairings, tax and gratuity.
