Seasonal Dining at a Historic House

Farm to Table Thursdays

Note: We are currently full for reservations through December 2021, but cancellations are common. To be added to the wait list, call 515.243.7063 or email Caroline.

You can’t get more local than this! Chef Katie takes our farm produce, adds protein from other Iowa farms and businesses, and transforms them into satisfying dishes. Vegetables are the stars here, with seasonal sides available for sharing around your table.

Each week’s menu (click on the menu button) includes a selection of favorites, plus a special appetizer, entree, and dessert inspired by the farm. Side dishes change often, depending on what was harvested fresh that week. Posted menus are subject to change slightly as ingredients are available. Entree prices range from $16 to $26. Bring your own wine or beer; no corkage fee.

Each course [an] extraordinary combination of flavors & textures & colors…
