About this experience

Join us for a VIP farm-to-table organic plant-based dinner with fresh cocktails/mock-tails and organic wine/beer selection, live music, fireside dessert...and of course DONKEYS - benefiting equine rescue and donkey-facilitated wellness for humans.

5:00-6:30: Start the evening with "Libations for Longears" cocktail hour (NA options available) while bathing in the sounds of live jazz by the talented Emily Dix Collective, with a sanctuary tour option and private donkey meet & greet opportunity.

6:40: Welcome toast and Zen Donkey update to share what our nonprofit has been up to and exciting plans for the future!

6:45-8:30: Dinner is served. Guests will enjoy organic and fall-inspired plant-based eats by amazing local chef Ashley Bare, served family style in an intimate outdoor farm setting alongside the donkeys' sanctuary.

8:30-9:30: Top off the evening with a moonlit campfire experience, complete with seasonal dessert options and live acoustic guitar musings for a moody and romantic fall vibe.

Guests will have opportunities to bid on unique experiences, crowd-fund ZDx needs, and can even sponsor a ZDF donkey!

Attire: Think elevated romantic farm chic. Boots are encouraged...weather permitting, guests will enjoy dinner outdoors, and sanctuary tours will be offered.

Farm address will be shared with ticketed guests - we are located near Lone Jack, MO. Email info@zendonkeyfarms.com with any event questions!
