Blackwood Farm-to-Table Dinners

Perennial Farm-to-

Table Dinners

Ticket sales end at 3:30 PM Saturday or until sold out!

Blackwood’s Spring Dinner on March 26th is our first of the year. These are always memorable days for us…to see a warm gathering around delightful farm-to-table food with beautiful, regenerated Texas land as our backdrop. The perfect night out, escape to the country, and celebration of spring. Please do join us.

If you’ve never attended one of our farm dinners before, here’s what you can expect:

  • We open the gates at 4:30 PM and allow everyone to arrive and enjoy a glass of wine while mixing and mingling with other guests from Houston, Brenham, Chappell Hill, Bryan and even as far as Austin.
  • At 5:00 PM we begin an educational tour of some of our 33-acre farm practicing regenerative agriculture, stopping at a few crops we’re most excited about, including some of those showcased in our five-course menu.
  • We sit for dinner at 6:30 PM and enjoy a wholly original, inspired five-course menu from Chef Cade Conlon as the sun sets.
  • Dinner ends by 8:30 and guests are invited to linger by the fire until the gates close at 10 PM.

Wine Selection

A clean, crisp Grüner with a nose of freshly cut grass, green apple, and white peach; lean and mineral-driven. Flavors of slate, lemon peel, and white flowers.

RED WINE: Claus Preisinger Puszta Libre

A wild yet lively and very drinkable red wine blend from Austria that’s made from Saint Laurent and Zweigelt. Delicate tannins and a vibrant red and black berried fruit character make this an excellent wine for the table.

Featured Farm Dinner Crops

 

Moringa oleifera

? Our first course at Saturday’s farm dinner showcases moringa, one of the most miraculous edible plants to ever be touched by human hands, in a couscous.

? Native to India and now abundant in subtropical regions like ours, moringa is dense with every nutrient we could ever need in virtually every part, from root to leaf to seed. This drought-tolerant tree loves our climate, and we love it back.

? Experience just how delicious a dish inspired by nutrient-dense food grown in regenerated Texas soil can be at this Saturday’s dinner…get your tickets TODAY while they last!

What we eat and how we grow it affects every aspect of our lives – our health, our brains, our hearts, our bodies – and our connection to one another. The work at Blackwood is a visionary template for food and food systems for Houston and for every community that prioritizes the fundamental well being of its citizens.
