Sincerest thanks to everyone who has joined us and supported Bare Knuckle Farm Dinner in recent Summers past.
As for this 2015 Season, we will be putting the regular farm dinners on hold while we tend to other business.
We thank you again for your continued interest and support.
Please keep an eye out for additional future events down the road.
Bare Knuckle Farm Dinners are unique events that feature the best of our farm's crops in a pastoral setting or in the comfort of your own home. We create a menu that is highlighted by food from our garden at its peak. Now the distance between you and the origin of your dinner is as little as a couple hundred feet.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What sort of food do you make?
We use the best of the garden to make a produce-laden meal. Please see the sample meals and blog posts for more inspiration.
Q: When will I know what’s on the menu?
We do not release menus in advance because often we pick produce the same day as your event. If there are certain foods that you'd like to avoid, that is certainly possible, but we are unable to promise certain dishes on certain days.
Q: Can you accommodate special diets?
We happily accommodate dietary restrictions. Please inform us of your needs at the time of booking. Because we are not a restaurant, menu adjustments on the night of the event are not always possible.
Q: Does the price include wine?
Q: What is the timeline for the dinner?
Q: Are children welcome at these dinners?
No, Bare Knuckle Farm Dinner does not provide or serve alcohol.
Guests arrive at either 6:30 or 4 depending on the day, go on a self-guided tour of the garden, eat appetizers and then dinner is served approximately half an hour after the start of the event (7pm and 4:30 respectively). Dinner usually lasts about 2 hours.
We are happy to have children at our dinners. We do not create a separate "kid's menu" but for children younger than 10, we serve a half portion for $30. If your child is a particularly picky eater, you are welcome to bring food that they will enjoy. We are also happy to have children interact with our farm but remind parents that there are tractor implements, uneven ground and electric fencing and so must be supervised to protect them and our farm.
Q: Where is your farm?
Q: What if it rains on the night of our farm dinner?
Our address is 10171 E. Garthe Rd. Northport, MI. As you drive along Garthe, we have an orange sign on the North side of the road. Please turn in that driveway, drive along the two track and then park with the other cars in the grass field. Someone will be there to greet you and start your farm tour.
Dinner will take place rain or shine, and in the event of rain we will set the table under the shelter of one of our barns.
Q: What are the conditions of the farm environment?
BKF is a real working farm, which means there is some uneven terrain underfoot, occasional bugs overhead, and of course the possibility of inclement weather. We recommend wearing comfortable flat-heeled shoes and having a jacket or sweater in case it gets cool. Please be aware that you attend these outdoor dinners at your own risk of tripping. Please be careful!
Q: Can I bring my dog or cat on a leash?
Unfortunately no pets are allowed at our dinners or on our farm.
