Dirty Dinners

Creating Community for Adventurous Foodies 

As a link between the Montgomery County Ag Reserve and our suburban & urban neighbors, Calleva creates a space that:

  • Includes a delicious, farm-fresh, plated meal with wine
  • Enables foodies to meet the local farmers, brewers, cheese makers, and vintners that have contributed to the evening meal
  • Showcases Calleva Farm, our produce & our “agri-cation” programming
  • Raises awareness of the artists & producers that power Montgomery County’s rural economy
  • Introduces guests to our community of leaders & learners with a one-of-a-kind dynamic & engaging evening on our beautiful farm

Proceeds from the dinner support Calleva’s outdoor programming, including summer camp scholarships & outdoor education collaborations with other local non-profits and schools.

Your Dirty Dinner is guaranteed to be a dynamic, engaging experience that includes live music, storytelling, local artisans & a delicious, 4-course farm fresh meal featuring the best local ingredients available.
