Blackwood Farm-to-Table Dinners
Blackwood’s Winter Farm Dinner is our way of providing an evening of retreat in nature, a celebration of the season, and a nourishing, grounding experience to end what has been a tryingly uncertain year in enjoyment and gratitude.
This will be a fine dining experience with wine included where we will enjoy five courses in pods no greater than 10 in the outdoors after learning from the very gardens where your dinner was grown. Chef Cade Conlon has conceived a menu around our late Fall harvest with accents foraged from our surrounding 33 acres. Masks will be required when interacting with anyone outside your own party, and separate seating can be accommodated for any party.
2020 Winter Farm Dinner
When: Saturday, December 19th, 2020 from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Where: Blackwood Farm
In partnership with Chef Cade Conlon of Longspoon Catering
$180/person, wine and tax included.
For a few special nights a year, we open our working, educational farm to all to experience a farm-to-table dinner in the truest sense. The seasonal harvest, our perennial gardens, and hidden edible gems foraged from our surrounding woods guide a five-course menu from Chef Cade Conlon to be enjoyed in pods of no greater than 10 all outdoors with heaters and fire pits to keep our guests comfortable. Included in the dining experience is education about our 33-acre property, where we teach principles of regenerative agricultural techniques suited to Texas soil and climate, all spread out among the three unique biomes represented on our property. Of course, wine is also included.
Our gates will open at 4:30 PM. For the first hour, our guests will be invited to “wine and wander” throughout the property before an optional, brief guided tour from our farm staff. Dinner will begin at approximately 6:00 pm with five courses and wine. After dinner, guests are invited to continue to wander and wonder. As a teaching farm, we encourage questions and love to see the spark in someone’s eyes as they actively reconnect with nature.
Our goal is that every guest leaves with a greater understanding of a closed loop food system and the meaning of regenerative agriculture: a system of healing the land, the earth, and in turn ourselves.
What we eat and how we grow it affects every aspect of our lives – our health, our brains, our hearts, our bodies – and our connection to one another. The work at Blackwood is a visionary template for food and food systems for Houston and for every community that prioritizes the fundamental well being of its citizens.
