As summer fades and goldenrod and asters start to light up the fields with their bright yellow and purple hues, savor the full, ripe flavors of Beach Plum Farm’s Autumn Harvest at our Fall Farm-to-Table Dinners– Fridays & Saturdays this fall.
Chef Josh Liwoch uses ingredients harvested that day featuring our hand-harvested produce and our sustainably-raised poultry and heritage pork. You might dine under the stars on a moonlit night by our crackling fire pit, or in our festively decorated hoop house. You’ll mix and mingle, sharing stories and dine family-style under twinkling lights at communal tables.
And you’ll want to join our mailing list because we might sneak in a surprise guest chef or two! BYOB.
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…
