Book a Private Event

We have so many ways to create a special experience at Middleground Farms. To us a “Private Event” can be many things…

Private Cooking Classes

Let us welcome you and your friends or team into The Kitchen and help you cook more confidently seasonally. You will work with our chefs to plan a seasonal menu that celebrates the bounty of the farm and creates an opportunity to fully immerse yourself in The Kitchen while helping to create your meal. We can create a plan that allows anything from a fully immersive hands-on competition, to a part-demonstration, part-hands-on more relaxed vibe while we create dinner.

The best part is this: either way, we finish by serving you and your group the meal that you helped to create. You relax and we take care of YOU. (And clean up!)

A hands-on experience in The Kitchen is best suited for groups of 8-24.

Hosting Private Dinners

Imagine taking over a beautiful restaurant for your own, chef-curated menu that speaks just to your group.

Be welcomed into The Kitchen with a cocktail, mix and mingle with appetizers, sit down when you are ready at a beautifully appointed Chef’s Table and eat a delicious multi-course meal.

Interact with the chefs, or don’t. This is your night. This is your restaurant. Be taken care of. You decide.

Available Event Spaces
The Kitchen - for up to 30 guests

The Kitchen is available for your private dinner for groups of up to 30 people for a sit-down dinner. A mingling dinner of heavy hors d’oeuvres can be a much larger group. In the summer months from June through September, imagine your dining room options expanding to the gardens and on the lawn.

The Wine Barn - for up to 10 guests

If you are looking for a more intimate space, consider our Wine Barn for your Private Dinner of up to 10 guests. In the more quiet space next door to The Kitchen, you will be well attended to, yet without the hustle and bustle of the open kitchen.
