Heritage Harvest Festival at Monticello

The Heritage Harvest Festival at Monticello celebrates the legacy of revolutionary gardener Thomas Jefferson, America’s “first foodie,” with more than 100 educational programs, hands-on workshops, garden tours, a bounty of heirloom fruit and vegetable tastings, lessons on seed saving and gardening, an organic, local food marketplace, kids’ activities and more on the breathtaking West Lawn of Monticello. Jefferson championed vegetable cuisine, plant experimentation and sustainable agriculture. In many ways, Jefferson was also the “architect of American life,” encouraging the growth and appreciation of the arts in America. Buy tickets early and save >>

HEADLINING THIS YEAR'S FESTIVAL - THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS!

We excitedly welcome Dr. Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell – known best as “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” – as the keynote speakers for the 9th Annual Heritage Harvest Festival! When Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge bought the “Beekman Farm” in upstate New York in 2008, they didn’t just start a farm, they started a movement. Five years later, their following now includes a hit TV show, a handful of books including the national bestseller “The Bucolic Plague,” product lines in major retailers such as Henri Bendel, Anthropologie and Williams-Sonoma and a James Beard nominated lifestyle website. Their farm and surrounding community serve as the inspiration for their popular lifestyle brand “Beekman 1802.”
