On Sunday the farm falls silent of tractor noise and the hustle bustle of the crew. The sound of the wind rushing through poplars peppered with chicken chatter takes center stage, and at this time of year where the sun is slow to sleep, an evening stroll on the farm is the perfect time to breathe in and be present. In the early evenings, the sun's rays land on the farm and glow, sometimes catching cover crop in a golden hue that makes me stop in my tracks; I'm a living statue, watching and listening, feeling the warmth of the summer sun on my skin, the breeze kissing me as I look out and around. Red tailed hawks circle above, and I can hear them calling mates guarding nests in the poplars nearby. I stroll through the field of summer squash, my hands brushing large leaves and bristly stalks. On a farm filled with produce, this field may be my favorite with sun-bright flowers open wide and an array of colorful squash at every turn. Nigel walks beside me and speaks of fertility and abundance, two beautifully connected concepts interwoven into Eatwell's landscape.

Back in the farmhouse, there's a different energy. I walk from the warmth of the summer sun into the heart of the home with Lorraine at the center, stirring and crafting a meal that features the abundance of the farm. Scented layers of simmering sauces and sauteing veggies carry me to the stove where I'm guaranteed a taste, and I melt, slowly into a chair at the table. Meals on the farm are a source of communion; the fellowship of friends and family joining in a meal celebrating the bounty of the farm and nourishment of our bodies and souls. And what we find through this fellowship is connection, to the food we eat, our gratitude for the land, and with each other.

This fellowship is open to you and your friends at our Sunday Suppers. Walk the fields in the early evening with Nigel and share an intimate meal around the farmhouse table with your friends, family, and Nigel and Lorraine. 

What others are saying about Sunday Suppers

Given that we’ve been nourished by Eatwell Farm pretty much since it’s inception, and given that Pat’s birthday coincided with the first farmhouse dinner being offered at Eatwell Farm, it didn’t take us too long to decide where we were going to eat on July 5th.
It was only a few minutes after our arrival at Eatwell the we accompanied Nigel to a row of corn to pick the ears that would be part of our dinner. Then back to the farmhouse where we were greeted with delicious smoked pork sausage produced by a neighboring farmer and smoked by Lorraine earlier that day. It was accompanied by freshly baked bread made from Eatwell’s recently milled, home-grown grain.
Once seated at the table the eating continued as the conversation happily flowed - corn on the cob, pulled pork, peach and green tomato salad, potato salad, more smoked sausage and bread, and fresh fruit tart. Grown only a field or farm away, and with an ETD from that field or farm only hours earlier, the delicious food we ate couldn’t get any fresher or more local.
We sure made an excellent decision to head up to Eatwell and join Lorraine and Nigel at their table. I highly recommend that you find a good excuse to do the same.
