Once a month from May to October, appreciative diners have joined hosts John and Helen, and gifted chefs Michèle Jennings and Margaret Wiebe, for a four-course Midday Sunday dinner featuring fresh, natural ingredients from our  market garden.
Diners sit at one long table on our porch, as people get to know their tablemates.   Michèle is always happy to answer recipe and menu questions. After the meal, we conduct tours around the farm to talk about the various vegetables, holistic fruit and nut orchards, beehives, and to visit the ducks and geese.

Having dinner at midday (1 pm) on Sundays with your family used to be a rural tradition. In a time when family connections are hard to maintain because of distance, family traditions enacted with friends can help build a “tribal” family, or “village”. We’re all about health and hygiene in mind, body and spirit. It’s fun to enjoy good times with friends, but we are going to limit groups to six people per dinner. Meeting new people is one of the principles of “harvest meals”, joining together in appreciation of the bounty of the earth,  building community and friends!.

Above is our upcoming Midday Dinner schedule for 2017. Please use the reservation button next to the dinner date you wish to attend. Reservations are on a first come, first served basis.
