April 30, 2020 - Due to the state's COVID19 health/safety guidelines, this event has been cancelled. Check back later this spring/summer for other celebrations of local food at farmfreshri.org!  


Celebrate the start of growing season!

Join us on a very special tour of the asparagus fields at Four Town Farm - and pick your own pound of asparagus to bring home! We'll enjoy local wine expertly paired and donated by Campus Fine Wines, and a wide array of delectable asparagus dishes created by renowned chefs from Johnson & Wales University, College of Culinary Arts.

On the tour, we'll learn how asparagus is propagated, grown, and maintained on this 150-acre fifth-generation family-run farm - located where the four towns of East Providence, Barrington, Seekonk, and Swansea meet. After the tractor-pulled farmer tour through Four Town Farm's asparagus fields, we'll return to the gorgeous farm stand for music and refreshments.

A Fundraiser for Farm Fresh Rhode Island

This event is a fundraiser. All proceeds will support Farm Fresh Rhode Island. As a 501c3 nonprofit, Farm Fresh RI will put the proceeds of your ticket purchase right to work for our local food system.

  • Our Community Access programs and Food System Enterprise services offer Rhode Islanders greater opportunity to choose nutritious, locally grown foods.
  • Through community events, Farm to School programming, recipe development and local food tastings, we educate the community about the important role fresh food plays in a healthy lifestyle.
  • The most cost-effective way to preserve our region's farmland is to keep farmers farming. Our marketplaces and wholesale services for local growers and food makers work to do just that.
  • By stimulating connections between farmers and eaters, we are also helping the local economy thrive, creating new jobs and opportunities in the food and agriculture sectors.
