Farm to Fork Dinner

Join us September 8th for an evening on the UCSC Farm, featuring music, appetizers, tours, and local wine followed by a four-course family style dinner on the farm. As the sun sets, head down to the Hay Barn for music, dancing, and dessert. Dinner will feature produce from the Farm and Chadwick Garden prepared by Ty Pearce of Busy Bee Cafe and Catering. 

Ticket Options 

Tickets for the four-course dinner on the UCSC Farm from 4-7:30 PM include dessert and dancing in the Hay Barn from 7:30-9:30 PM. Tickets are $200 per person.

Not interested in dinner? You can skip the meal and join us from 7:30-9:30 PM for dancing and dessert in the Hay Barn for $25. 



Free guest parking is available in lots 115/116 off Bay Drive, with an optional shuttle to the Hay Barn for a walk up to the farm. Parking for those with limited mobility can be reserved in lot 168 (the Village) and a shuttle will be provided to drive guests directly onto the farm. Please email us at to request an accommodation once your ticket has been purchased. 


Like many farms, the terrain at the UCSC Farm can be uneven and dusty. We recommend wearing shoes you can walk confidently in. Fall evenings on the farm are the perfect opportunity to layer—a sun hat and scarf would be perfect accessories for the event—and, if you are joining us for the barn dance portion of the evening, some boots would make great footwear for the evening.
