Looking for a venue for a wedding, work function, family gathering or any event that would work well in a beautiful outdoor setting paired with great food? Look no further!
Our farm is a perfect backdrop for your event with plenty of room for guests to wander, play some outdoor games, have a bonfire or whatever suits your fancy, and the photo ops are endless! We can help with as little or as much of the planning as you want. We’ve got a party tent that can fit up to 72 people (seated). Or if your group is smaller we can seat up to 10 people in the store or veranda. Our partner restaurant, Odla can prepare a full meal or canapés with Farm One Forty ingredients.
While butter is making a comeback, rightfully reclaiming it's place from the usurper margarine, lard remains relatively reviled among the general public, despite the fact that it has a fatty acid composition similar to olive oil and is extraordinarily rich in vitamin D, as long as the pigs are pasture raised. Trim lard is the fat trimmed from the entire pig. It has a subtle back-note of meatiness that hydrogenated oils and even lard from the grocery store which is bleached and deodorized lacks. It's high smoke point (370F) makes it ideal for frying and it gives braised meats and vegetables a rich mouthfeel. When you purchase lard in this form, it will require rendering but it's super easy! See the FAQ section for instructions on how to do that.
These eggs are raised by a partner farm nearby. Jane's chickens are free run with access to large outdoor paddocks that they are rotated through. In addition to the worm-eating and bug-scratching that they do the chickens eat local, non GMO grain (including flax to boost their omega 3's) which Jane either ferments or sprouts depending on the season. These beautiful brown eggs pack a punch with less cholesterol and saturated fat but more vitamin A and E, omega 3's and beta carotene.
The sheep we raise are not wool sheep, but hair sheep which means we don’t shear them; their hair sheds naturally in the spring. When the lambs are butchered we send the lambskins off to a tannery and they produce beautiful and durable rugs, couch throws, car seat covers, crib and stroller liners or whatever you see fit to use them for! The fleece of lambskin has excellent insulating properties and is also resistant to flame, dirt, moisture and static electricity. Lambskin is a natural insulator and has temperature-regulating properties, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This makes it a great choice for newborn babies that are learning to regulate their body temperatures. Lambskins have a soothing effect that can result in better sleep and since they are gentle on your skin, they are great for people with sensitive skin or babies that are prone to skin rashes. Wool is considered by the medical profession to be hypoallergenic.
It's not every day the average person gets to tour a farm and see where food really comes from so that's where we can help.
When you come for a tour of Farm One Forty you’ll be greeted with a feature handcrafted cocktail and appetizers will await you upon your arrival. After everyone has settled in, farmers Arlie and/or Brett will take you for a tour of the farm. You can stroll out to the pasture and visit the animals and on the way back we will walk though the gardens where most of the ingredients that you will eat for supper were grown and harvested. You will have a chance to learn about our story, see our chickens, sheep, pigs, cows, dogs, farm cats and honey bees, ask us any questions you have about food production and more!
We can't say for sure what's on the menu because it will depend on what is available in the garden and cellar at that time. What we can tell you is that with chef Scott Dicks doing the cooking, it will be delicious, it will be super fresh and it will be memorable! Menu boards from previous dinners are shown in the photos to give you an idea of what to expect. After supper and of course dessert, we will have a bonfire and some musical entertainment so bring a warm sweater! Your ticket includes a feature cocktail and a glass of bubbles. Additional beverages can be purchased.
