One of the LDNY premier annual events: Summer Dine

This popular event began as an evening of concurrent dinners in major Big Apple restaurants, offering specially crafted menus and meet-the-chef opportunities. As we navigate the changes in our restaurant and hospitality industry, we look forward to creating opportunities and continuing to support the dining industry via our members, colleagues, friends, and sponsors.

Coming this summer


Our events are open to both LDNY members and non-members:


Together we will visit and learn about responsible farming, partake in a harvesting activity, do some pickling, take home our harvested bounty and enjoy a picnic lunch together. After lunch spend time shopping at the farm stand and continue to explore the farm before going home.

The AOOA Farm Tour offers an insider view of our working farm. Learn about how AOOA came to be and what it means to be a “regenerative silvopasture farm.” You’ll learn about our farming practices, how we manage the land, and why we raise the animal breeds that we do.

Transportation is not included. We recommend taking NJ Transit from NY Penn Station. You should expect to meet at NY Penn Station for an early morning departure. This will get us to Campbell Hall Station in Goshen, NY, followed by a 10-minute taxi to the farm.

You may visit to view ticket options and track train times for Saturday, June 11th. A few days prior to departure, we will provide a confirmed train time and central meeting point at Penn Station so Dames and guests can travel together.

Should you decide on alternative transportation, you may contact for further directions.

All One One All (AOOA) is a non-profit regenerative silvopasture farm, farm stand, and education center in New York’s Mid-Hudson Valley. Founded in 2021 by Ariane Daguin and her daughter Alix Daguin, the name of the farm is inspired by the famous proclamation in Alexandre Dumas’ Three Musketeers (“All for one and one for all!”), which captures the heart of the project: to stand up for what is right and enrich the local community, together.

Through responsible farming practices, community workshops, a bountiful and biodiverse harvest, and delicious farm stand goods, AOOA aims to promote a rich local food culture, build a connected and more resilient community, and do its part to contribute to a healthier planet. Follow the farm @aooafarm on Facebook and Instagram.

A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit the Les Dames NY Scholarship Fund.
