Restoration Farm Hosts First Farm-to-Table Celebration

Slated for Sunday, September 21 at 5 p.m., the buffet dinner will be held at the Tin House at the entrance to Restoration Farm on 140 Bethpage-Sweet Hollow Road in Old Bethpage. Tickets are $40 per person and include salad, entrée and dessert all using organic ingredients grown on the farm. Drinks are BYOB.
