  Tastings and Teas        

Mother's Day Tea
Mother’s Day Tea: Served at tables with starched linen tablecloths, spring flowers, and antique china, our Mother’s Day Tea is an exquisite tradition. Tea sandwiches and spring soup, warm scones and cream, cakes and dainty pastries served in our barn amid our cherry orchards.

Father's Day Farm Brunch
‘What is so rare as a day in June!’ This day will focus on great food, flowers and family fun for all ages. Our bountiful brunch will feature fresh picked strawberries and asparagus, thick slices of home made French toast with maple syrup and fruit sauces, baked ham, pies, strawberry shortcake and vegetarian offerings. Come create daisy crowns and chains, and look for bluebirds on our garden path and pick your own strawberries.

Midsummer Night's Tasting
As the summer sun dips down to the horizon, and strains of lyric music float softly on a breeze, we will host our Midsummer Night’s Tasting. Lanterns will twinkle from the cherry trees, candles will dance on the tables, flowers will nod in both garden and vase. Our foods, so carefully and lovingly prepared, will be presented on festive board. Settle into our summer world for an evening - as the moon rises, the harp plays and the butterflies rest.

Thanksgiving Tasting
As the lanterns and candles are lighted and the pot bellied stove in our market glows with warmth our holiday tables are made festive with bouquets and still life and are richly laden with our delicious foods. Our cathedral-like barn, beams warmed with the patina of age, glows
with seasonal color. Filled with character and twinkle and feeling, our Tastings are a moment to share the depth of what our farm means. Our tastings have been featured in many articles over the years, most notably in Victoria Magazine in November of 1994 and Better Homes and Garden magazine in November 2004.
 
Christmas Teas
Elegant and old fashioned, our Christmas Tea is served in our darling herb cottage. Our antique sideboards are festooned with boughs and ribbons, and silver tea trays are filled with delicacies, both savory and sweet.
