This summer, we turn our farmhouse, built in the late 1700s and affectionally known as the “Old House,” into a seasonally inspired casual dining destination.
Join us on the house’s porch for light, seasonal fare and then pick a spot anywhere on the surrounding property for a picnic-style meal. Taking in the serene, pastoral surroundings will remind you to slow down and breathe in the summer's air. You can enjoy a cold beverage while you play old-fashioned lawn games, then end your evening with an after-dinner stroll. This is summer in New England at its finest.
There will be a cash bar with local beer and wine.
