Boulder Knoll Community Farm is a small-scale, environmentally sustainable farm in Cheshire, CT that provides healthy, local produce to 66 shareholders as well as local soup kitchens. The farm is the creation of Friends of Boulder Knoll, a non-profit education and advocacy group for sustainable agriculture and sustainable communities.

The dinner, a fundraiser for the organization, will feature a family-style dinner showcasing fresh farm produce and local ingredients.
The dinner is being prepared by the Caseus chef Jason Sobocinski, with chicken provided by Certified Humane®’s Murray’s chicken, salads and sides fresh from the farm, and fruit pies for dessert. (The menu looks delightful.) Wine for the meal provided by Southend Spirits of Cheshire and music provided by Liz McNicholl.
Honorary chairpeople for this event are Adele Douglass, founder of Humane Farm Animal Care Certified Humane® and Jason Sobocinski, owner of Caseus Fromagerie and Bistro in New Haven and host of The Big Cheese on Cooking Channel.
