Farm Dinners

Farm Dinners at Glynwood

Glynwood is proud to offer a "Pay what you can" model for all our public programs. If you can, paying more than the listed amount for these programs helps support our work to transition to a healthier, more resilient and more just regional food system.

Glynwood Farm Dinners are a unique dining experience and, unlike traditional restaurant service, are often family style. Vegetarian meals are always available and we will do our best to accommodate dietary restrictions, but we are not a nut-free facility. Please keep in mind these are fixed menu events, not a la carte, thus, if you have strict food allergies please be aware that the chef may be unable to accommodate them. Glynwood dinners are BYOB events.

For our overnight guests, each room is unique and assigned based on availability. Information on accommodations will be emailed to you in the days prior to the event.

Please contact Glynwood’s Director of Events & Public Programs, Lauren Dellolio, at ldellolio@glynwood.org with any questions about our Farm Dinners or overnight farm stays.

July Farm Dinner

Join us for a beautiful dinner at Glynwood's lakeside boathouse where Brian Arnoff, Head Chef at the top-rated Beacon restaurant Kitchen Sink will prepare a classic fried chicken dinner. Born and raised locally and getting his start at the restaurant Gigi Trattoria in Rhinebeck, Chef Brian left to hone his skills in places such as Boston, Italy, and Washington D.C. before returning to his roots and opening Meyer's Olde Dutch Food and Such and Kitchen Sink in Beacon. It only makes sense that he was warded "Best Chef in the Hudson Valley" in 2018, so come experience his cooking for yourself.

This is a family-friendly dinner, and we welcome you to enjoy a beautiful night on Glynwood's property with the whole community!
