Farm Dinners

OUTDOOR DINING HAS ALWAYS BEEN OUR STYLE

We're no stranger to dining amongst Mother Nature. In fact, that's been our style going on ten years strong. Growing closer to nature and the food it provides for us is a big part of everything we do here, and we hope you join us at a Farm Dinner!

 

Deepen your connection to Heritage Prairie Farm as you enjoy a night at one of our amazing seasonal Farm Dinners. All of our monthly farm dinners are tailored to the season and made fresh on the farm with the helping hands of our farm crew.

Our Chef carefully prepares each farm dinner menu by selecting the very best fresh ingredients from our Certified Organic Farm. We serve our monthly farm dinners family-style as you take in the many beautiful surroundings—many of which created your farm-to-table dinner!

Many of our monthly farm dinners celebrate the seasonal themes happening on the farm —heirloom, roots, and honey. But no matter the season, these very special evenings make a wonderful way to relax with friends and family.

(NOTE: All Farm Dinners are 21 and over. Cancellations or transfers must be made 10 business days before each event.)

WHAT TO EXPECT

Enjoy a unique dining experience on the farm

When you join us for a Farm Dinner, you'll be experiencing outdoor dining with truly farm-to-table flavors directly from the fields.

Each dinner is themed around the seasons with specific details listed on each event. For some, we partner with a local brewery or distillery, and others feature food stations & cocktails for a night of charitable giving. There's a theme or setting for all to enjoy!

 

Our Farm Dinners begin at 6 pm with butler-passed appetizers during cocktail hour. Weather permitting, we offer a farm tour where you can learn about our organic farming practices.

Dinner is seated at 7 and dishes are served plated family-style for a social experience. Be sure to come hungry! Each menu features several courses of seasonally-inspired dishes made with ingredients from our fields & local partners.

For specific event themes & details, be sure to read through each farm dinner description on the events listed below.
