While Granor is primarily an active, operating farm, we offer a limited private dining experience on the farm intended to broaden people’s understanding of organic farming, our growing practices and the food we produce. Meals are served in our farmhouse, the center of our farm operations, from mid-May through the end of February.
Meals at Granor Farm feature crops grown on our farm, all while celebrating the food culture of southwest Michigan around long tables and over good conversation. Throughout the season, we offer a variety of events connected to our farm. We focus on farming, eating, and learning about our regional food community.
We hope that you will join us and share in what we grow at Granor Farm.
Please know that our dining program is not open to the public and is offered on a limited and seasonal basis. Please note that all events are private, by ticket only, and tickets are non-refundable or transferable.
Unfortunately, at this time, we do not feel we can simultaneously maintain the spirit of our dinners and adhere to recommended Covid-19 guidelines. As we did with our May and June dinners, we have decided to suspend our dining program for the remainder of the summer. Updates about the dining program will be announced via the Granor Farm Newsletter which you may sign up for by entering your email at the bottom of this page.Find Tickets Read our Faqs
Join us in our renovated farmhouse for a multi-course, family-style meal that features produce and grains grown by Granor as well as meats, cheeses, and fruits from other regional farms. These dinners epitomize our desire to connect the food we grow with the people who eat it, all while providing a space to connect with each other in beautiful Southwest Michigan.
Our Taste of Granor Program begins with an optional farm tour followed by dinner. Each dinner is a multi-course, family style meal that concludes with dessert and coffee around the fireplace or under the summer stars.
All dinners are BYOB, private and by reservation only.
From May through October, we are now offering an optional, pre-dinner farm tour led by Granor farmers. This tour lasts 20-30 minutes and shows you the style of intensive cultivation we practice at Granor as well as our barns, fields, and hoop houses. Tours must be reserved at the time of booking and will take place rain or shine. For dinners in November through April, in lieu of the tour there will be a talk before the dinner to give a brief overview of the farm, our history, and what we grow and why.
The only thing we love as much as eating what we grow is reading. This dinner series combines those two loves. Book and Supper Club features local and national authors as they lead an intimate conversation about their work, followed by a meal inspired by the book. All diners will receive a copy of the book as part of the ticket price.
Granor Farm is fortunate to be rooted in a region full of artisan producers. This dinner series connects diners with a regional food producer as we sample their tasty work and learn about what goes into its production. Each meal begins with a discussion with the producer, followed by a multi-course, family-style meal using their ingredients to compliment what’s in season at Granor. This program engages with other small farms allowing us to learn more about regional food production and agricultural practices.

Since its formation, Granor Farm has worked to educate and share knowledge with persons of all ages and interests. We host a series of classes and workshops around the crops that we grow to inspire confident cooking in your kitchen and gardening at home.
Each class provides detailed information about the dishes we are preparing, recipes, and a demonstration of how to work with each ingredient. After the demonstration, we eat the dishes created and continue the conversation about how to best cook with these ingredients at home.
Please join us on our farm as we cook and eat together.
Each month this class series identifies five vegetables from the Granor Farmstand, discusses what to look for when shopping for ingredients, and demonstrates recipes for each crop. This class will educate you on how to use ingredients in their prime state, and also how to best manage ingredients that may have been refrigerated for too long.
This class accommodates cooks of all skill levels, and is a great way for CSA members to feel confident cooking through their weekly produce supply.
Beyond the Garden
Our food community is filled with many other artisans and producers. Granor Farm occasionally invites other producers to teach us about their ingredients. These classes focus on a broad array of foodstuffs, including locally produced cheeses, wines, fruits, and meats. Keep an eye on our event calendar to book your space at the next workshop.
