Dinners in the Garden • Middleground Farms

Enjoy a 4-course family-style menu Italian menu created by Guest Chef Kathryne Bennett of Bionda Foods, served in the privacy of our private garden.

The Menu & Pairings

Each week our garden-inspired prix fix menu will feature four courses, from a nosh board with fresh-baked focaccia and with warm olives all the way through dessert.  This weekend’s menu is a special treat, featuring Chef Kathryne’s extensive research and experience creating regional Italian cuisine. The menus incorporate seasonal produce from the garden, enjoying the best that our farm and region has to offer.

Please let us know if you are vegan or have a gluten intolerance.

Our sommelier has created an optional Italian wine pairing for $50 to enhance the meal and can make additional suggestions. Your choices may be made prior to your dinner, if you choose.
