Asparagus Fest — Advance tickets only

May 4 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$100.00

Celebrate the start of our local growing season this spring with the arrival of asparagus! Join us on a very special tour of the asparagus fields at Four Town Farm — and pick your own pound to bring home! We’ll enjoy local wine & beer, and a wide array of delectable asparagus dishes created by talented chef-instructors from Johnson & Wales University, College of Culinary Arts.

On the tour, we’ll learn how asparagus is propagated, grown, and maintained on this 150-acre fifth-generation family-run farm — located where the four towns of East Providence, Barrington, Seekonk, and Swansea meet. After the tractor-pulled farmer tour through Four Town Farm’s asparagus fields, we’ll return to the gorgeous farm stand for music and refreshments.

Tickets | $100

Advance tickets only!
