Farm Feast for Grassland Birds

Join us for a unique fundraiser at Pleasant Valley Farm (PVF), a certified naturally grown farm raising over 40 types of fruits and vegetables year-round in Argyle, NY. This farm is owned by Paul and Sandy Arnold, long-time supporters and volunteers of Grassland Bird Trust.

Meet fellow conservationists and bird lovers at dinner as well as some live birds! The Arnolds will be hosting a wonderful farm-to-table feast featuring fresh, locally grown products from PVF, Mack Brook Farm, Slyboro Ciderhouse, Battenkill Valley Creamery and more! Other highlights include farm tours and a live bird of prey presentation by Trish Marki from Silent Wings. Limited seating at PVF’s gardens – reserve your spot today!

Our partners at Slyboro Ciderhouse have graciously agreed to donate two tickets to one of their two upcoming musical events for those who are interested in contributing $250 to Grassland Bird Trust. For more information, click on the “RSVP” button below.

Funds raised from this event will support GBT’s work to preserve valuable grasslands for endangered, threatened, and at-risk grassland birds.

We are excited to see you on August 1st!
