Tickets are on sale now for Tractors & Truffles and features a day of farm tours, wine tasting and fine cuisine topped off with a multi-course dinner prepared and served on-site in Fallon’s beautiful Oats Park.

Chef Ryan Scott — who made his culinary debut on “Top Chef,” and continues his TV career as host of “Food Rush” — returns for an encore performance. The chef and restaurateur joins Mark Davis, chef director of the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of California, San Francisco, as well as Fallon resident and Slanted Porch owner Steve Hernandez.
