SEYMOUR - Join “Farmer Kim” Dulka and the gang on Saturday evenings this summer at The All-American Valley General Store – for their five-course “Farm to Table” Farmer’s Feast.  

The fixed menu fete – served for $25 a person - is dished up from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. and features courses using fresh produce and dairy products from local farms and growers. The store is at 16 Bank St., Suite 140.

Live entertainment sets the meal to music as the Farmer’s Feast – like Wednesday’s “Open Mic” – are attracting country, bluegrass, and classic acoustic folk and rock musicians from all over Connecticut.  

The dining room is both quaint and cozy. Reservations are strongly recommended.  The outdoor porch and patio are open, so enjoy a summer evening breeze from an antique rocker or pull up a bench or Adirondack chair around the herb garden and set for awhile.

All Connecticut-made items
If the Farm Feast dessert doesn’t satisfy your sweet tooth, choose from a selection of local ice cream, or indulge in Waterbury’s famous Fascia’s Chocolates, or maple sugar candy from Lamothe’s Sugar House in Burlington. 
Between courses, browse wares from local artisans: from antique glassware to goat's milk soaps to organic lotions to yarns spun from local Alpaca. 
It’s all grown, churned, milled, made or discovered in Connecticut.

Kim Dulka opened The All-American Valley General Store in December 2011. She is a fourth-generation farmer in Seymour. Vegetables, flowers and Christmas trees are grown and harvested at Red Clover Farms, which has been in Dulka's family since 1915. 

The store also offers a knitting night and workshops on everything from farming healing herbs to hosting rustic bridal showers.

Dulka says of her endeavor it is “everything Connecticut.”
