Girl and The Goat Hosts A Sweet Dinner for Local Farm, Seedling Fruit

Forget about hard economic times, a farmers worst nemesis is strange weather, like in the case of Seedling Fruit, who lost most of their apple production due to a mild winter and earlier than usual hot weather. Luckily, they have Girl and the Goat as a friend. In an effort to aide future production, Girl and the Goat will be hosting a dinner in their private room at 809 W.

The dinner costs $195 per person with all food and drinks included.

To join in and support your local farmers, call 312-602-2588 for tickets.
