Farm to Table Dinner
Time & Location
About the Event
This evening will still be set up to help showcase fresh products from local farms (within 100 miles) and from our own farm to help support the local food movement. Each dinner is prepared by a professional Chef. We would love to invite you to join our family at our farm for an amazing evening of food, wine, music, supporting local farms, and a beautiful atmosphere to just take a walk and enjoy the scenery. Our April dinner is just the start of some early spring items coming into season...so we source as much as we can locally, but it is just the beginning of growing season here in Missouri.
We are excited to announce we have added a chef this season, which is Chef Stephanie Eastwood! Stephanie has her own catering company and does a phenomenal job! We are excited to work with Stephanie and also look forwards to her doing some cooking classes we hope to start offering this summer in our new kitchen space!
Due to Covid guidelines, we will be hosting our dinner in our larger event room to allow for ample spacing. We will seat each party separately vs family style. If you are coming with a group, we are glad to seat your group together. Mask are welcomed but they are not required. Our past dinners have been sold out, so don't wait to book!!! Fall is a beautiful time to join us on the farm! Enjoy some live music by a local artist, wine tasting with wine from Aubrey Vineyards, and an amazing 5-course meal prepared by a professional Chef.
We are also so excited about the fact that each one of our Farm to Table Dinners we like to partner with an organization to support. This is an optional time of giving or maybe it will spark your interest to serve with this organization in the future. Hope Haven of Cass County will be who we are working with for this evening. Hope Haven exists to provide safe shelter, concentrated supportive services, community resources, and education to survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Our menus are planned based off of what is in season, so we try to have our menu completed a few weeks out from the event. We start the evening with appetizers as you arrive. The patio area is open during this time, if weather permits. You may also take a walk around the farm. We will then move inside to our main hall area for salad, soup, main course and dessert! The dinners are so fresh and delicious! The Chef will also come out and talk about the different courses throughout the evening, and will also demo one part of the evenings courses. This is definitely an experience you do not want to miss out on!
Our musician for the April dinner will be pianist, Jacob Filer! We are so excited to have him back! Jacob and his family moved to Nashville, TN and will be back for our April dinner! We lucked out and snatched him up for that evening!
