FAQ

FARM DINNERS​

  • What if I have a ticket but I can’t attend the event?   Due to the nature of our events, we are unable to offer refunds. However, you are welcome to transfer your tickets to someone else. Please contact us at least 24 hours before the event with the new quest's name and information. Otherwise, they are welcome to use your name when checking in. Please keep in mind transferring of funds is not our responsibility.

  • What is the price per person, and what does it all include?    Tickets start at $80 (this includes sales tax and a ticketing service fee) and vary depending on the event. Tickets include a reception with welcome beverages and passed appetizers, a tour of the farm or event site, and a four to six course family-style seated dinner. All ticket prices are listed in USD unless otherwise noted.

You will receive a confirmation email as soon as your reservation is complete. Closer to the event, you'll receive an additional email with with pertinent event details and information.

  • What should I wear to an Origin Event?   Our dinners take place on all sorts of natural terrain- in the fields of working farms and vineyards, alongside rivers and streams. Please dress accordingly and remember to wear comfortable shoes. It often gets chilly in the evening (even after a warm day) so please come prepared with a jacket or blankets to keep you comfortable. We anticipate many beautiful sunsets this coming season and recommend you bring a hat or sunglasses as needed. Guests tend to dress up a little for our events, but jeans and casual attire are not out of place.

  • Do you allow well-behaved dogs at the events?   Due to health department regulations, dogs are not allowed at our events.

  • Can you accommodate children at the events?   Our outdoor dining experience is intended for adults. Due to the length of the event, the family-style services and out of respect for all guests, we ask that you not bring your children.

  • What if it rains?   All events are rain or shine. In the case of rain, we will find shelter for the table- sometimes this means we find a magical place in a greenhouse or barn. Guests still receive a tour of the farm, so be sure to check the weather and dress appropriately.

  • Is there alcohol at Origins events?   This depends on the event. At times we will have a wine or  beer pairing or maybe a special cocktail. You will be notified if it is included. We do offer non-alcoholic beverages at all events. For your safety, we suggest that you arrange for a designated driver or plan for a driving service to get you home safely. As events are often off the map, it's best to arrange for transportation in advance when alcohol is served.

  • Will I be able to see a copy of the menu before i arrive at the dinner?   The menu is revealed at the table. The chef designs the menu in the weeks or days leading up to the event, based on the freshest possible ingredients from the farm or locale. We like to keep the meal hyper-seasonal, artistic, and spontaneous!

  • Can you accommodate dietary restrictions or food allergies?   Our dinners are best suited for flexible, adventurous eaters! Due to the nature of a shared meal, it is very challenging to meet all dietary restrictions. Please email kyle@originexperiences.com if any questions.

  • What can I expect at an Origin Experiences Event?   Events are typically 4-5 hours in length. This includes a reception, a tour of the farm or event site, and a multi-course meal at the table. Dinner is served family-style. We occasionally host wine or beer dinners which will be noted in the event description. At the table, you'll have the chance to dine and mingle with the farmers, winemakers, and artisans featured at the event.

  • Any other details I should know?   Please keep in mind that there is an implied Assumption of Risk of Damage or injury at our events. We work tirelessly to ensure the comfort and safety of our guests, but we do encounter a variety of terrains and climates and weather can change without warning. We will send you a reminder email prior to the event with a description of the expected conditions at the event and and preparatory recommendations.

  • Do you host private events?   We do! We host private dinners for a variety of occasions. Click here for more information on booking a private event with us.

  • When will I receive directions to the farm and other important information about the event?   You will receive an email from us about on week prior to your event with directions to the event location, finalized event details, and helpful hints on what to wear and what to bring. Once you've made a reservation, make sure you allow emails from kyle@origineperiences.com in your spam settings so you don't miss any further communication.
