Farmer-Neighbor Dinner

Cattaraugus County has an annual dinner for farmers and their neighbors. Most of the food and beverages at the dinner are locally-grown and locally-made.

Area exhibitors setup tables at the dinner to have conversations with dinnees.

Local farms and organizations either donate or sell the organizers the food and beverages at a reduced cost.
