Invitation-only TOMATO JUBILEE at Village Garden RVA Farm with portion of proceeds to benefit the Holli Fund. This private, limited admission Harvest Celebration event will be held at the farm in Hanover, alongside rainbow gardens with hundreds of tomato varieties, a geodesic greenhouse brimming with exotic chilies, verdant creek-side walking trails and special musical guests to set the mood and soothe the soul.

Featured dishes include a wide variety of delectable SECRET SQUARES new gourmet Detroit-style pies, prepared onsite by Willoughby Obenchain; a specially seasoned (hello Dukes and heirloom baked tomato) AUTUMN OLIVE FARMS WHOLE HOG expertly prepared by Tyler Trainum; tomato seed poundcake with tomato jam from FOOD NETWORK BAKING CHAMPION KEYA WINGFIELD; classic Duke's multi-color HEIRLOOM TOMATO SAMMIES and rollout of a new NIGHTINGALE ice cream sandwich, made with Dukes Mayonnaise. Included in the ticket is a lush variety of Virginia's best beverage pairings by the inimitable Jason Tesauro of Barboursville Vineyards.

We will have TWO sessions: the first will begin at 4:00pm and end at 7:00, the second will go from 7:00 to 10:00pm.

This will be a walk around affair, as tours of rainbow heirloom gardens, toasts, earthly delights, surprise gifts and fun roll non-stop. We will be welcoming our guests to the farm with music and light hors d'oeuvres to enliven the senses and prepare our guests for an intimate, interesting and very tasty affair. The culinary hang of the season, this will be a fabulous affair for a great cause.
