Just forty-five minutes southwest of Austin, tucked into the charming Hill Country, is Montesino Ranch. The natural beauty of rolling pastures, tree-covered hills, and the limestone-bedded Blanco River crossing the farm will immediately draw you in and make the short drive more than worth-while. It inspires farm managers Melody McClary and David Burk to grow equally beautiful fruits and vegetables. “Vegetables will be plentiful this fall,” says Melody. “We will have a good season.”

Join Slow Food Austin for a tour of this gorgeous produce farm and a sample of their produce. The farm tour starts at 5 pm. A $15 ticket is redeemable for a selection of Montesino’s wonderful vegetables. After the farm tour, put on your dancin’ shoes and come on down to their spacious 28 foot pole barn for the dance. The $25 ticket covers both the veggies and entry into the dance.

The live music starts at 7 pm and ends once all the dancers are tired. BYOB. Food will be available to purchase at the dance.

To RSVP and buy tickets go to slowfoodaustinmontesino.eventbee.com.
