Smolak Farms once again presents its outdoor dining experience this summer for its ninth season. This year’s “Whim” located in North Andover, will take place every Wednesday evening from June 12 through August 28. Beginning at 5:30 each evening, it’ll feature some of New England’s best chefs, like Harvest’s Tyler Kinnett and Prezza‘s Anthony Caturano.

“Whim is such an innovative concept,” said Michael Smolak, owner of Smolak Farms. “It is so easy to get wrapped up in the craziness of Boston and I think people appreciate an evening away from it all. We’re taking the best food in the city and bringing it to a more rustic and relaxed setting. Top that off with the fact that each dinner supports a great cause and you really can’t beat it.”

Guests will experience a meal under the stars prepared by some of New England’s most respected and praised chefs. Included in the $85 ticket price is a multi-course dinner prepared by guest chefs on a “whim” based on the freshest produce available from Smolak Farms, a 300-year-old New England farm located about 45 minutes north of Boston.

Dress is casual, and while beverages aren’t included, paired wines, beer, and non-alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase. For more information on “Whim” or Smolak Farms, please visit Tickets can be purchased directly here
