Dirty Dinner

Experience the glory of our 200-acre farm, featuring a meal comprised of locally grown ingredients, local wines, and live music from local artists. Our beautiful farm in Dickerson, MD is the hub for Calleva’s Growing Green camp, Horse Adventures, Ag Education, and other group programs for kids of all ages. Dirty Dinners give adults an opportunity to experience a delicious meal set amidst the bounty of the season, the relaxed joys of farm life, and the simple beauty of the great outdoors in Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve.

Dinner ingredients are mostly grown at Calleva Farm, plus additional products from other area producers & wines from local vineyards.

Goals: 

We want to showcase Calleva Farm and our produce and become a link between the Montgomery County Ag Reserve and nearby urban communities. We want to help foodies connect with local growers as well as our own Growing Green farming and education programs. Finally, we want to help improve awareness of the farms, artists & businesses that exist in rural Montgomery County.
