to Table Dinners
Harvestville Farm is excited to announce this year’s Farm to Table Dinners for the 2019 season! Each Farm to Table Dinner will feature fresh produce picked straight from our garden, along with locally grown fruits, vegetables, and meats prepared by area chefs within our regional community. Seasonal menus are chosen as collaborations between each chef and our farm to enhance our guest's dining experience through incredible flavors, textures, and vibrant color presentations. NEW this season - guests will be able to purchase a glass of wine or beer at the dinner as well as enjoy a bottle of wine and/or brew of their choosing that is brought with them to the dinner. Farm to Table Dinners are a wonderful way to have a truly authentic dining experience set within Southeast Iowa's beautiful countryside. Each dinner consists of a five course meal, along with a beautiful atmosphere, great conversation and wonderful music. Menus are announced within a few weeks of each dinner via email to reserved guests as the menu is dependent on what is available in our garden at the time of each dinner. Each Table holds 6 guests.
