We’ve spent years dreaming of lining our fifty-foot picnic table with nothing but delicious veg. In steps Chef Rich Vanderplas of Edenopolis to make all of our technicolored vegetable dreams come true!
Let me tell you, this is not your average Butcher Paper Dinner but rather an homage to summer’s bountiful harvest, we’re talking about a rainbow of veggies as far as the eye can see!
A performance will unfold before you.
There will be layers upon layers on all things natural, edible and organic.
A construction beyond our wildest imagination- a farm inside a farm, the feast and table mimicking the fields around us. We’ll dine on decadently sweet & savory “dirt”, as we dance, sway and sing the night away with roasted red peppers, juicy tomatoes and tender eggplant spiced to perfection and showered in herbs.
A cornucopia for the final hurrah of the season, fit for the royalty of the plant kingdom. There will be incredible views, bumpin’ tunes and plenty of booze to sip on as we commemorate our final dinner of the season. We’ll cheers to the sunset and the end of summer and bid farewell to our fresh veggie friends until next season!
3pm - 4pm: Snacks, drinks, explore the farm

BUTCHER PAPER DINNER
The Butcher Paper Dinners are a series of fun, sustainable and inventive dinner parties held June through September at our flagship rooftop in LIC, centered around the farm's massive, reclaimed white oak communal table down the length of which we roll butcher paper. We engage a rotating lineup of the city's most innovative chefs who bring their unique culinary stylings to play with fresh, seasonal produce, serving family-style, eat-with-your-hands meals directly atop the paper-lined table, all of which is composted onsite after the event. This style of hands-on dining allows guests to really engage with their food -- and their neighboring diners -- for a dinner event that's outside the box. You won’t find napkins or utensils at these dinners, rather we opt for a good old fashion hose down as we aim to create as little waste as possible.

Brooklyn Oenology Winery (pron. ‘EN-ology’ or simply ‘BOE’), is a locally-focused winery based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, founded in 2006 by winemaker Alie Shaper. BOE extends the fundamental idea of terroir, which is essentially a combination of factors that create a wine’s sense of “place,” by incorporating the local agricultural, creative culinary, and art worlds.
In addition to sourcing New York grapes, BOE draws upon the Brooklyn and greater New York areas to create its identity. Each wine’s label showcases contemporary art by a Brooklyn artist and features a new piece of work for each vintage. They’re not just for viewing; they are double-layer, easy-to-peel stickers, so the customer can preserve the artwork. The tasting room also sells products from other artisanal New York state producers.
