At Peaceful River, our farm dinners are the pinnacle of our daily efforts. There is a great emphasis on our farm-fresh vegetables and berries as we harken back to simpler times of enjoying meal that is emblematic of a true farm meal. We normally begin at 5:30 pm on Sundays with our welcome reception in a casual farm setting including delicious, plant based appetizers. Guests will also take a tour of our farm and learn more about sustainable farming. Your delicious dinner will be served approximately at 6:30 pm on the deck overlooking the market gardens at a communal table where conversation and friendships blossom. We move into our cozy Education Barn if the weather is not cooperating.
