“What a fantastic evening – a lovely walk round the beautiful farm, followed by a magic summer feast of perfectly judged food” 2018 diner
Imagine an open fire, straw bales, a fairy lit barn, beautifully laid tables and, of course, delicious food made with our own, organic ingredients and you have the perfect picture of dinner on the farm. Our Pop-Up Dining evenings are the culmination of our deeply help belief in ingredients produced to the highest standards, cooked with care and creativity and eaten with like-minded people who share our belief that good food sustains a good life!
“…a fantastic five-course feast and a lot of food for thought into the bargain.” Salisbury Journal 2018
Each evening begins at 6.30pm with drinks and nibbles and then an opportunity to see a bit more of the farm and our livestock enjoying their free-range lives. We then return to the barn for a seasonal five course feast of mouth-watering organic food cooked just for you! All the food will be prepared in our own kitchen using meat and vegetables from the farm. Those ingredients we can’t supply ourselves will be carefully chosen from other local, organic producers who share our high standards of care and ethics in their production.
“…fine food in a rustic style, bursting with seasonal flavours in the unforgettable setting of the Blackmore Vale.” Blackmore Vale Magazine 2019
We’d love you to be a part of this unique experience so tell your friends, make up a party and join us for a fine time and fine food!
