The Future of Farming
Join us for lively discussion, drinks and dinner as we address the Future of Farming in New Jersey.
Good Folk Supper Club and Highlands Dinner Club are excited to collaborate on this inaugural three-tiered event celebrating New Jersey’s farming history and exploring its future in agricultural sustainability. Held in the historic Bell Works complex, the event will introduce a select panel of voices representing innovation, education, preservation, placemaking and distribution in the Garden State. These topics will be addressed in a panel discussion, followed by an outdoor cocktail reception on Bell Works state of the art rooftop greenspace. The evening will culminate in a private ticketed dinner featuring local, innovative flavors for a limited number of guests. We’re honored to work with Chef Richard Corbo, former Executive Chef at Tribeca Grill, who will be collaborating on our inventive menu. A portion of our proceeds will be donated to America’s Grow-A-Row, a non-profit organization committed to positively impacting as many lives as possible through a volunteer effort of planting, picking, rescuing, and delivering free fresh produce.
Panel participants include:
Fran McManus (moderator), educator/writer, Understanding Flavor
Charles Rosen, founder of New Ark Farms and Ironbound Cider
Mikey Azzara, founder/owner of Zone 7
Oliver Gubenko, founder/owner of Harvest Drop
Adam Wolf, founder/CEO of Arable
Jon McConaughy, owner of Double Brook Farm
We believe that good food makes good friends – it can also foster passionate discussions, initiate new relationships and inspire collaborations that will strengthen the Garden State food system for future generations. Come take a seat!
