Dining FAQs

When will I know what is on the menu?

We do not release menus in advance. We often harvest produce from our fields the same day as your dinner.

What type of food is served?

We use the best of what's in-season from our farm to prepare a multi-course, family-style meal. The multi-course dinner starts with appetizers on the table and finishes with a local cheese course, and dessert.

Can you accommodate my dietary restrictions?

Possibly. Because we are not a restaurant and tailor our meals to what’s in season, it is critical that all dietary restrictions be shared at the time of booking. Be aware that our kitchen is not allergen free. If you have any food allergies (e.g., peanut, shellfish, gluten), our dinners may not be suitable for you. From time to time we will also offer dinners that cannot accommodate dietary restrictions-- such as showcasing a dairy or meat producer to compliment our own produce. Please refer to the specific event listing for specifics.

Do I need to pay in advance?

Yes. Full payment is due at the time of booking. All tickets are non-refundable.

What should I do with my tickets if I can't attend?

You are welcome to give your tickets to friends. When you find a replacement for your tickets, please email [email protected] to update the reservation and ensure that notifications to the guests attending.

Do you maintain a waitlist?

We do keep a running list of people who have expressed interest in attending our dinners but have not been able to buy tickets. In the event that a ticket holder needs to sell their tickets, we will connect the ticket holder with those on the waitlist so that they can find a replacement for their tickets.

Will I be dining with other people not in my group?

Yes, unless you have reserved all the seats.

Do you offer meals for groups larger than 8?

Yes, we reserve one weekend a month for groups larger than eight people. Please email [email protected] for details on booking the entire farmhouse for your group.

Is alcohol served?

Granor Farm does not provide or serve alcohol, but has a “BYO Decanter Policy” that allows you to bring your own beer, wine, and cider. No other alcohol or spirits are permitted.

How much wine should I bring?

We leave that up to you. Our meals are served in a private residence where we are all guests. If you choose to have wine with your meal, please don’t drink too much of it. Our goal is to create a unique and intimate dining experience that is educational, comfortable and safe for everyone.

What is the cost of the meals?

Each event is priced according to the volume of food and style of dining. Details and reservations can be processed here.

Can children come to a meal?

We have found that these meals are not a good setting for children under the age of 10. The dinners are generally 3 1/2 hours; brunch lasts 2 1/2. Additionally, we do not have highchairs, additional seating, menus, or activities for children during the meal.

When do dinners begin and end?

Start times vary with each event. Please reference the event listing and your confirmation email for the most accurate timing. Without exception, dinner concludes at 10:00 PM EST. In the summer, most of our staff living on the farm work from nearly sunrise to sundown. They need their sleep. Accordingly, we ask that you leave quietly and with respect for the people living on and near the farm.

Is there parking at Granor Farm?

Yes, guests can park in our gravel parking lot (east of the Farmstand) accessed from Warren Woods Road. Parking is limited, so we encourage our guests to carpool.

Are there bathrooms?

Yes, there is one bathroom in the farm house.

What should I wear?

Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, although we strongly discourage suits, ties, high heels, fancy loafers and open toed shoes. Remember Granor is a working farm. Our roads and paths are loose stone, gravel, and dirt, which means they are often uneven and muddy. Occasionally, a chicken or duck will also leave an unwrapped present for you. Use common sense and dress accordingly.

What happens if it is raining?

You might get wet. Our events will go on rain or shine as the meals take place in our climate controlled farm house. In case of extreme weather, we will modify the farm tour accordingly and should we cancel a meal due to weather, we will contact all attendees personally.

Can I bring my dog, cat or other pet to dinner?

Please do not. Our chickens need their rest. Also, coyotes, raccoons and our other nocturnal friends may not be welcoming.

Is there smoking allowed at Granor Farm?

We do not allow smoking anywhere on Granor Farm, including the parking lot. Smoking causes serious damage to our plants and soil (sometimes staying in the soil for up to 40 years!) that can not be remedied through organic practices.
