Farm to Flanders
THE ULTIMATE GOURMET PICNIC & ONLINE AUCTION
SAME GREAT CAUSE. SAME AMAZING FOOD. DIFFERENT SEAT.
Support Flanders Nature Center this year by pre-ordering a gourmet picnic meal made by renowned chefs using local, farm fresh ingredients from Connecticut farms. Your multi-course meal will be packaged in a cooler tote you get to keep. We have convenient curb-side pickup. We invite you to enjoy the picnic on one of our preserves or to enjoy at home.
What’s in your Ultimate Gourmet Picnic tote?
The tote will include a multi-course meal for one person made by local chefs sourced from local farms. A la carte add-ons include wine, beer, specialty cocktails, floral arrangements, and children’s meals.
