Private Events


Do you have a business group looking for a unique place to meet and eat?  Have you considered celebrating your special events in gorgeous farm setting on the prairie (birthday, anniversary, wedding reception or rehearsal dinner)? Let the Chef of Prairie Fruits Farm, Raquel Aikman Ritz take care of your group.

Prairie Fruits Farm is now offering the PLOUGHMAN's FEAST for lunch/dinner at $45 per person (price includes a 30 minute tour of the farm). The meal is a nearly 100% local feast showcasing our fine farmstead cheeses, as well as local cured meats (charcuterie), home-made breads, crackers, fruits, berries, fresh & pickled vegetables,  Blue Moon Farm salad greens, and a grilled dish of either Bane Family Meats pastured-whole chicken or Piemonte Artisanal Sausages. Our home brewed Mint Iced Tea would be served. Desserts featuring our artisanal gelato are available for a small additional cost.  

If your budget permits, let Chef Raquel design a unique "Farm to Table Feast" menu, (this option starts at $65/person and goes up according to the menu crafted). For this option, the chef would meet with you to discuss your ideas and tailor a menu to fit your group. We welcome events of all sorts & sizes. We guarantee a memorable experience as well as outstanding food and service.
