Producers

They come each week, from over a hundred mile radius of Las Vegas bringing their wonderful fresh-from-the-filed products for display and sales at Bet On The Farm farmers market in Las Vegas.

Dice Tomoatoes is dedicated to supporting these producers who are creating and expanding the important role of providing our Southern Nevada residents with a suource of naturally grown and produced sustainable food.

We hope you’ll support them too.

From The Farm To The Fork

Friday, October 21st 2011
5:30 pm Hors D’oeuvres Served
6:00 pm Seated at Dinner (Sunset)

By bringing the table to the farm we want to reconnect our guests to the land and the origin of their food and to honor the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate the local bounty that we enjoy here in the Moapa Valley. It’s not every day one has the privilege to sit next to the person who planted the beans, raised the beef, shaped the cheese, or who milked the cow that was the source of that luscious cream on your plate.

After a tour of the farm, dinner will be served family style (or farm style). The menu will be dictated by what we freshly harvest from our farm and other local small family farms.

Join us for an amazing dining experience. The sun will set. Candles and a fire will be lit. You will enjoy live music (Bach under the stars), a magical atmosphere, great company and incredible food with a mileage footprint of 5 feet!

 $75 per individual, $125 per couple
(Current QHF Shareholders $65 per individual, $100 per couple!)
Wine pairing: (optional) $25 per individual, $40 per couple

Our farm is located in the Logandale/Overton area, home of the Clark County fair. We will send driving directions upon receipt of payment.

Make your reservations by clicking on the link below now before our table is full!
