The Land of Milk and Honey

The idea of our culinary experiment started years ago with a garden and cattle and has become an evolution of constant expansion and innovation with our food. We are inspired by an endless pursuit to accomplish dining perfection, with perfectly grown foods.  As one of the most inclusive Farm to Table Inns in the country, producing our food is our way of life. Our gardens provide all the bounty we need.

We raise dairy goats, chicken, rabbits, tilapia, and beef for a romantic overnight stay.  All cheeses are handmade artisan cheeses made from our milk. We keep bees for fresh honey and utilize the wax for our Handmade Artisan cheeses. Our extensive gardens and greenhouse along with the onsite aquaponic greenhouse provide us with all the bounty we need to provide our guests with something we are proud of.

Farm to table cuisine is an expression that exemplifies the purity of food. We have raised heritage crops for years. We do not grow any crop that has been genetically altered in any way. We are pesticide free and use only real organic farming with not only our crops and dairy products but all of our animals as well. The meats we serve are from our farm and are natural and are raised from grains, fruits, and vegetables from our fields.

We serve either a three course or five-course gourmet menu Saturday nights that are entirely determined by what is freshly harvested and seasonally available. We offer our casual dinners on Thursday & Friday nights, and of course, a full hot breakfast is delivered each morning.

We can say a lot, but the proof, as they say, is in the pudding. While we do not always serve pudding, when you taste an egg gathered that morning, lightly whipped and perfectly folded with a dolloped of fresh chevre and laid on a bed of greens grown on the property, you won't mind the substitution. We strive to prove that we are not just about theory, but rather about producing perfect, delicious food.

If you wish, your experience may include a walk through the gardens or observing the functions of the aquaponic greenhouse, helping collect vegetables, gathering the eggs or even assisting in milking to provide you with the ultimate farm to table experience.

We love that our guests arrive anticipating all of our whole organic foods. These include our meats, milk, eggs and cheeses, and fresh farm vegetables.  It is a task that most cannot or will not do, but we are built around that challenge. That being said, as a small Inn, we serve our daily menu selections as our guests have chosen ahead of time and at one dinner service. As such, our complete sourcing from our farm limits our ability to adapt to guests with restrictive or special dietary needs, and though we will try to accommodate, please check before making a reservation as to our ability to do so.   We can accommodate Flexitarian & Gluten Free.  We are not able to prepare Lacto Vegetarian, Vegan or Ovo Vegetarian diets.

We must have dietary restrictions within ten days of arrival. Please email us with your nutritional limits, strong likes and strong dislikes. We are not able to make adjustments if we are not notified well in advance

Everything is seasonal to the moment!

Let the experience begin... 

"If I had to sum it up with one word, it would be WOW. I am not sure where to begin. Brad, Marcia, and their staff have been amazing. Right from the first phone call through our departure. The grounds are stunning and the food exquisite. We will definitely be returning!"
