About the Event

Join us for a truly unique dining experience in the heart of our lavender fields on the warm summer evening of June 22nd, where we are delighted to announce a 5-course dinner with lavender-infused cuisine prepared by the talented Chef Bryan Leary, founder of Perspective Catering, and Michael Prete, founder of Portsmouth Catering. This culinary journey will emphasize and celebrate the rich flavors of our local New Hampshire farms with a vibrant, specially curated five-course menu that promises to tantalize your palate and ignite your senses.

We begin the evening with a cocktail hour, where you may visit the bar for complementary lavender infused cocktails, wine, and our signture crafted Lavender Saison, made by The Last Chair Brewery. From there you are welcome to wander the grounds and explore our field of over 10,000 lush lavender plants on the cusp of their annual bloom. Enjoy stationary and passed hors d'oeuvres as you socialize and take in the landscape, or sit back and enjoy the moment as you listen to live music drifting through the lavender scented air.

Following the cocktail hour, we'll move to our rustic barn for a sit-down dinner. You'll be treated to an unforgettable dining experience as our talented chefs present each course, featuring locally-sourced ingredients and unique flavor combinations that highlight the aromatic and delicate flavors of lavender. Throughout the evening, our chefs will share insights into the unique practices of our featured farmers, offering glimpses into the dedication and passion behind the cultivation of high-quality, organic ingredients.

Our chefs' goal is to weave these farm-fresh ingredients into culinary artistry that reflects the essence of our local agriculture, and for our guests to gain insights into the journey of each ingredient from farm to fork. This immersive and intimate dining experience not only enhances our appreciation for exceptional food and wonderful company, but also fosters a deeper connection to the land, the farmers, and the culinary artistry that brings it all together.
