Phil at the Farm 8/27

Experience an evening like no other with members of your Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra as you are guided through a multi-sensory pairing of music, food, drink, and nature. The Phil’s string quartet will elevate each dinner course with a performance inspired by the chef’s offerings, deepening the perception of all the senses.

The farm-to-table experience with Three Leaf Farm’s includes a tour of their small organic farm, visits with the farm animals, and a self-guided walk on their medicine trail.

Tables of six will be seated together, so we encourage you to gather your friends and attend as a group!

Due to Colorado liquor licensing laws, Three Leaf Farms partners with local wineries to provide delicious, Colorado wines for our dinners. Three Leaf is honored to partner with Settembre Cellars of Boulder. We recommend pre-purchasing wine directly from their website, which will be delivered and ready for you at the farm when you arrive. Please visit their website HERE
