The Farm Party helps us savor those last few weeks of summer. It reminds us why we love living in Missoula. It brings us together over a good meal, a few drinks, and a great band.
Germans call this Gemutlichkeit. We call it the Farm Party.
Share a farm fresh meal, drinks, and music by MoneyPenny and Union Club favorite, Russ Nasset and the Revelators: a band known to get a dance floor hopping.
We celebrate with food from our fields, drink brewed right here by the good folks at Draught Works Brewery, and cooked up by our PEAS Farm Summer School crew and the good folks at UM Dining.
Revel in the alpenglow-kissed fields. Revel in the community we are all a part of here in our place, Missoula, Montana.
