Amazing Benefit Happening In Napa!

Dinner Celebrating the Centennial of Connolly Ranch

Saturday, October 7, 2017

Connolly Ranch will celebrate 100 years at their annual Dinner at the Ranch benefit on Saturday, October 7. To pay tribute to this centennial anniversary, Dinner at the Ranch will feature Prohibition-era cocktails, speakeasy games.  Connolly Ranch is a rich reminder of Napa’s agricultural past. Peggy Connolly and her family moved to their Napa farmhouse 100 years ago in the fall of 1917, and the ranch has been a vital source of community, farm-based education for the past 25 years.

At Connolly Ranch, kids and families learn about farm life, the role of animals, ecology, sustainability, and an appreciation for nature. We teach organic gardening, the sources and benefits of healthy foods and knowledge of how nature works to sustain us. Connolly Ranch supports a diverse community with visiting each year through field trips, family classes, events, early childhood programs, seasonal camps and open farm days. In Peggy’s will, Connolly donated the property to the Land Trust of Napa County in order to preserve the 13-acre farm.
