Dietary Restrictions and Allergies: All menus at CVI are thoughtfully customized for each event and express the inspiration of the farm at a given moment. As such, they are subject to change, and alternative ingredients are generally not readily available. If anyone in your party has any serious dietary restrictions and/or allergies, please notify us within 48 hours of the event so we may properly accommodate with appropriate consideration of substitutions or omissions.

While vegetables are the focus at the Culinary Vegetable Institute, we do include a variety of animal proteins in most of our menus. We believe fully showcasing our vegetables includes pairing them with a vast array of complementary foods. If you follow a vegan or vegetarian diet (or have other dietary requirements), we will be happy to accommodate your needs, but request that you please notify us no less than 72 hours prior to your event in order to prepare for those adjustments. 

Dress Code: The dress code is casual at all of our events unless otherwise noted; we dress as if we are entertaining friends in our home.  Please note that the drive and parking lot are unpaved so may be dusty in dry weather or muddy in inclement weather.

Cancellation Policy: We request that you cancel at least 14 days before a scheduled event. This gives us the opportunity to fill the event.

Hospitality Included:  Ticket prices include the dinner experience, service and sales tax. Our team will not accept gratuities and no service charges will be added to your bill.
