Forage & Feast 2024

Spring has sprung! So has the eagerly awaited return of our annual Forage & Feast Experience. 

This year, we were thrilled to welcome sixty guests to the farm for a SOLD OUT immersive five-hour experience to explore, learn, create and indulge. Our collaboration with nature and partners; Proper Flower and Partners and Grapes, set the stage for a day filled with adventure, connection, and culinary delights.

Guests embarked on a forest journey in search of elusive morel mushrooms, guided by seasoned foragers. Their efforts paid off as they uncovered a treasure trove of these coveted delicacies, which only flush for two – four weeks each year!

After foraging, guests were greeted with a Mushroom Elixir Mocktail (recipe below!) and mushroom – centered hors d’oeuvres.

Guided shiitake mushroom log inoculation had guests engaged in a hands-on activity while fun tunes filled the air.

Proper Flower’s talented team transformed our Cedar Barn with an enchanting table-scape and playful mushroom trees.

Our Executive Chef Joy Turner and her culinary artisans crafted a menu to celebrate the best of our farm and the region, sourcing seasonal ingredients from local growers. Smoky rosemary adorned our Mushroom Pot Pie for a delightful aromatic element. Our Forager’s Tool Box Chocolate Cake was accompanied by a shovel spoon for guests to “dig” in with. To top it off, each course was served alongside an organic wine pairing by Partners and Grapes.

At the end of the night, guests departed with memories to cherish and their inoculated mushroom log!

As we look ahead to the future, we are filled with excitement and gratitude for the opportunity to continue this tradition for years to come.
