Thank you for making

Tastes of the Valley 2018 a success!


Thank you to everyone who supported the 2018 event!

Join us next year on Sunday, August 25, 2019

The Publick House, Sturbridge, MA

Tastes of the Valley showcases the talents of local farms, orchards and restaurants by pairing products grown, raised and created in The Last Green Valley’s 35 towns with a variety of local chefs.

Your evening starts with a social hour featuring local wines, beers and beverages as well as appetizers prepared by area chefs utilizing local products. You are then invited into the main dining room where you will be treated to an amazing multi-course, sit-down, farm-to-table dinner showcasing dishes created specifically for our event by some of the area’s top chefs. Seated at each table will be a special guest – either a local farmer, vintner, brewer or agriculture expert for you to converse with as you learn more about what it takes to keep The Last Green Valley green and delicious.

The end of the evening will feature a dessert buffet and live auction featuring guest auctioneer Gene Michael Deary. Silent auctions and a raffle will be held throughout the evening highlighting locally-crafted items and experiences. It’s a different spin on the area’s best farm-to-table experience and the perfect way to support the efforts of The Last Green Valley.
