Q: What can I expect at the Farm & Vine Dinner?

As guests arrive, they check in and are shown to the reception area where folks mingle and enjoy a beverage. About an hour into the reception, guests will hear a dinner bell, signaling to begin finding their seats at their table in The Field. Guests will enjoy a multi-course meal composed by chef Jakob in our outdoor kitchen. Dinner will be served family style, with wine paired to each savory course.

Q: How long will the Farm & Vine Dinner last?

This event will last about 4.5-5 hours, start to finish.

Q: What if we would like to sit next to our friends at the event?

We will email out a request for dinner "neighbors" a week prior to the event. We will do our best to accomodate all requests for seating placement.

Q: Can you accommodate guests with dietary restrictions or food allergies?

Dinners are served family-style and everyone dines at the same table. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate strict restrictions such as vegan diets, medical diets, or severe food allergies. If you have specific questions about dietary restrictions, please email us at Info@FDFA.org and we can advise you.

Embrace the autumn season with your favorite fall festive attire. Dinner will take place on the natural terrain, in The Field at the the Farm on Winding Way so comfortable flat shoes are recommended.

Guests may prefer to dress up for this event, however jeans and casual attire are equally welcome.

Q: When will I receive directions to the farm and other important information about the event?
Our guests will receive details two weeks prior to the Farm & Vine Event. After making a reservation, please make sure to allow emails from Info@FDFA.org in your spam settings, so as not to miss further communication from us.

Q: What if I have tickets but I can’t attend the event?
Due to the nature of our events, no refunds will be given for cancellations. However, if you cannot attend the dinner, you are welcome to transfer your tickets to someone else. Please contact us with the new guest’s information at least 48 hours prior to the event or tell the guests using your reservation to give your name at arrival. NOTE: Due to the date change, we will extend a refund for 1 week in order to accomodate those that cannot make the new event date due to scheduling. (The final date for refunds will be October 12) Those that cannot attend may select one of three options: to receive a refund (if prior to October 12), generously donate their ticket fees toward the Mural installation, or transfer their tickets to another person. If you have any additional questions, email us at info@FDFA.org.

Q: Is there a waitlist for sold out events?
Because tickets are non-refundable, once the dinner is sold out, it is very unlikely that tickets will become available. Contact Reservations to be added to the waitlist.

Q: Will I be able to see a copy of the menu before I arrive at the dinner?
Chef Jakob has designed the menu leading up to the event based on the freshest available ingredients. The dinner will be artistic, spontaneous, and reflective of the Fall season. All guests will receive a menu at the table when they arrive in The Field.

Q: Where will the new mural be located that the Farm & Vine Dinner is supporting?

The location of Friendswood's newest mural will be released in the coming weeks along with other details about the artist and the proposed artwork.

Q: What if it rains?
This event will proceed rain or shine. In the event of rain, we will arrange for shelter for the table. We recommend keeping an eye on the weather and dressing appropriately. Please note that due to the large amount of rain that we have experienced in the past few weeks, we will be moving the event date to November 3, 2018. If you have additional questions, please contact us at info@FDFA.org.
