We are taking your traditional Farm-to-Table dinner and adding a few twists. Instead of just taking the vegetables off the farm, we are bringing the farmers from Bluestem Farm to your dinner table. Farm-to-Table Fridays is a celebration of fresh produce, local meats/fish, and BEER! So not only will we prepare your farm fresh entree in front of you at our Everett's Action Station, but Short's Brewing will be here to pour you a beer while we cook it. Each participant will also receive a Day Pass to Solace Spa, valued at $35!
In a nutshell...Bluestem Farm + Short's Brewing Company + Boyne Mountain = Farm-to-Table Fridays!
Special to the Farm-to-Table Finale:
- Dinner served at 7pm
- Live Entertainment | TBA
- Chair Massage from Solace Spa, plus a Spa Day Pass for each participant
- Deer Lake Sunset | Enjoy the view!
- Benefit for Help Others Eat Well | Bluestem Farm launched the Help Others Eat Well Fund in 2014 to provide low-income families in northern Michigan access to nutritious foods.
For reservations, please call Bobbi Jo at 231.549.6854.
