Cattaraugus County is home to a vibrant and diverse agricultural industry in which good communication is essential to developing and maintaining good relationships between farm and non-farm neighbors. The Farmer-Neighbor Dinner (FNDinner) event is a way to bring the County’s farmers and their neighbors together for a night of fellowship and understanding. It will also be a way for the County’s farmers and businesses to showcase what they have to offer each other.
The dinner is prepared from all locally grown items from around Cattaraugus County and surrounding areas.
At the 2019 dinner there were over 320 attendees and over 20 sponsors & exhibitors. At the 2022 F.N. Dinner, there were over three hundred attendees with sponsors and exhibitors.
The evening will begin at 5:30 pm with agricultural related exhibitor displays and appetizers. Dinner will begin at 6:45 pm, followed by presentation of awards to Farm of the Year, Friend of Agriculture, Conservation Farm of the Year, and a surprise award. There will then be a presentation by the speaker, and to close the event, there will be the door-prize raffles.
