Gather around our crackling campfire in the crisp fall air to share some hot farm-fresh chili with family and friends Friday & Saturday, November 23rd & 24th from 4-7pm at Beach Plum Farm’s Chili Campfire Dinners. We’ll have multiple fire pits lit and roaring around the chili station. Come out and cozy up to the fire, hang out, make s’mores and listen to some live music.
Come home to our farm by the sea for a relaxing weekend full of satisfying food and fun activities just a short bike ride from the beach. Choose from any of our daily excursions- you might help our farmers harvest hand-picked produce or even gather your own eggs for breakfast. Or perhaps a long walk along secluded Davey’s Lake is more to your liking?

Beach Plum Farm’s acclaimed intimate Fall Farm-to-Table Dinners are back by popular demand and run Saturdays through November 17, 2018. Celebrate the season as Chef Todd Phillips uses ingredients harvested that day. He might start with a silken celery root soup and end with a butternut squash crème bruleé. Entrees might feature Beach Plum’s succulent sustainably-raised heritage pork and poultry. Guests will mix and mingle, sharing not only their bottles of spirits and wine but also sharing stories before dining family style at communal tables.
You might dine under the stars on a moonlit night by our crackling fire pit, or in our hand-hewn Amish barn. Or even in one of our fields. The location is a surprise!
All dinners are BYOB. We invite you to bring your own wines or spirits. Farm-fresh juices and herbs will be provided as mixers to make your own craft cocktails. Enjoy this night as a time to socialize and tell stories with friends and to share the abundance of our farm’s fall harvest.
And this year, end your evening by coming home to Beach Plum Farm with a stay in one of our delightful new cottages and barns. Your Saturday dinner is included in your stay. Then, we’ll stock the fridge with fresh eggs and meats at turndown in the evening if you’d like, so in the morning you can cook your own breakfast. Or you can stroll over to the main barn where our cooks will prepare a morning meal for all of our guests. Learn more here…

Start a new tradition this season with a festive holiday farm-to-table dinner at Beach Plum Farm. Begin your evening with a stroll among the twinkling lights of our Elfin Woodland Marsh Trail where we’ll have cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres around the glow of a crackling fire.
Each menu will be curated by Beach Plum Farm’s own Chef Todd Phillips inspired by what’s fresh at the farm that week. Highlights might include roast heritage turkey with sweet potato spätzle or braised Berkshire pork loin and gratin of leeks.
The dining experience itself will remain a surprise and will depend on the weather – we might choose to dine al fresco, under a tent or in a greenhouse– abundantly decorated with the greens and lights of an Old Fashioned Christmas.
Cap off the night with a Carol Sing and our complimentary Beach Plum Farm Songbook to take home with you as a souvenir. The Beach Plum Farm Market will be open for holiday shopping during the dinner so that guests can fill their Christmas Lists with unique local artisanal products, farm-inspired cookbooks, home goods, and Christmas ornaments.
All dinners start at 6:30 with hors-d’oeuvres and are BYOB. We invite you to bring your own wines or spirits. Farm-fresh juices and herbs will be provided as mixers to make your own craft cocktails. Enjoy this magical night as a time to create your own Christmas memories with family and friends.
This year, you’ll be able to stay right on the farm in one of our festively decorated Beach Plum Farm Cottages. Just picture opening the front door adorned with a fresh wreath made of pine. Inside you’ll find the stockings hung, and picture-perfect twinkle lights…

EVENT IS CANCELED DUE TO POOR VIEWING CONDITIONS & INCLEMENT WEATHER
A note from our astronomer: ” Meteor Shower Event Final Call- Unfortunately the weather forecasts are all converging to the same idea. Very cloudy with the chance of thunderstorms. Due to the inclement weather we are forced to cancel the meteor shower viewing event for this weekend. We regret having to make this hard decision but no need to worry! There will be lots of astronomy events coming up in the near future so make sure to keep an eye out for them. If you happen to catch a glimpse of partly cloudy skies this weekend make sure to go outside and try to view a few meteors in between the clouds. Scheduling these events is tough because of weather but when we do get those crystal clear skies it’s all worth it. Astronomy is worth taking that risk to educate kids about our universe. Those kids are our next generation of scientist’s and astronauts! To be able to inspire them to enter the S.T.E.M field is worth everything. -Chris”
The back fields at Beach Plum Farm present an ideal location to take in one of the most breathtaking celestial events of the summer- the Perseid Meteor Shower. Please join us for a meteor shower viewing party at BPF on Saturday, August 11th. The viewing will begin around 8:30 pm and run until 11pm.
Space enthusiast and photographer, Chris Bakley will be bringing lots of equipment to give everyone a deeper look into the universe. Anyone who wants to participate in that is welcome, and if not they are all more than welcome to just sit back, relax and enjoy the night sky. Chris will also be going around and answering any questions people have. He’ll bring a legal laser to direct our viewing and will point out major astronomical objects. The event is complimentary and don’t forget to bring your chairs, blankets, and headlamps!
The weather this summer has been blissful and we’re indulging in the luxury of dining outside under the stars. Now that our long-awaited tomatoes are finally ripe for the picking, we’ve decided to celebrate with a series of carefully-curated 8-course feasts that feature our abundance of heirloom tomatoes, Wednesday nights at the Farm.
BYOB, and clink glasses with neighbors and friends as you gather at our long candlelit communal table for this joyful celebration of the summer’s bounty– just steps away from where your meal is harvested. You’ll also enjoy our special farm fresh herbs or your BYOB craft cocktails.

OPEN FIRE COOKING FRIDAYS:
Chef Todd is upping the ante on traditional barbecue and will be bringing the Patagonian technique of Open Fire Cooking to the Farm. Gather round the flaming logs of his fire pit for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres where our own pasture-raised chickens will roast over the open flames and take on the character of the smoky wood fire. Look for charred zucchini, beets, and squashes. And a coal-roasted seafood dish in the offing. Chef Todd will be using every aspect of the fire- from the flame to the hot coals to char our very own farm fresh meats and hand-picked produce. Open fire dinners are weather dependent. We’ll head back to the barn for a family-style farm-to-table feast if rain is in the forecast. Cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres begin at 6pm. $90 plus service fee & tax. BYOB*.
BRINGING BACK A CAPE MAY TRADITION:
Summer visitors to Cape May may remember the Southern tradition of the Children’s Table that was prevalent in many families and in our finer hotels. Beach Plum farm is bringing back that grand tradition updated in our own fun and family-friendly Beach Plum Farm style.
Parents need some alone time, so children 4-11 are invited to dine at our Kids’ Table where they can enjoy a special kids’ menu within earshot of the adults, but far enough away to have their own memorable evening. They may roast hot dogs over an open fire, play corn hole or catch fireflies with the BPF team or even pet baby chicks. $45 plus service fee & tax per child includes dinner, drink, activities, and dessert.* Kid’s Table will run until the end of August.
*We can accommodate vegan, vegetarian and dietary sensitivities with 24-hours notice.
