Spring Events

Easter Eats, farm dinners and more.


Are we done with nor’easters? Will spring actually stick around this week?

Beach Plum Farm, located at 140 Stevens Street in West Cape May, is celebrating spring on Saturdays—no matter whether Mother Nature cooperates!—with farm-to-table dinners at the BYO restaurant fed by the 62-acre farm of the same name.

The early-spring farm dinners will take place every Saturday night through April and the menus will be based on what’s fresh at the farm that week.

Guests may bring their own libations; juices and herbs will be provided as mixers for cocktails.

Reservations are required. The cost per person is $85, plus a 20-percent service fee and tax. To reserve call 609-602-0128 or visit beachplumfarmcapemay.com.


Oasis Farm, 89 Sleepy Hollow Road, Middletown, will host its last three Social Graces Tea services of the season on upcoming Wednesdays at the farm that serves as a school for adults with autism, offering instruction in farming, cookery, cheesemaking and bread-baking, and the life arts.

The teas will take place April 18, May 2 and May 16 from 3 to 5 pm, with seatings at 3 and 4 pm. Tea and foods are prepared and served by the student interns.

RSVPs are required and early reservations are recommended. For reservations and details, please e-mail [email protected].
