Dinner 5-6:30pm; Concert at 7 pm
Scrag Mountain Music is coming back to the Farm! Join us for delightful harvest meal direct from the farm and then world-class chamber music in the Barn’s event space
“Simply Amazing!” is the description we often hear about our partnership with Scrag Mountain Music. Mary Bonhang and Evan Premo and the talented colleagues they assemble for Scrag Mountain Music concerts seem to have a blast playing in our barn.
The musicians say it is because during the farm suppers they begin connecting with you who attend, sharing the meal, watching the goats, figuring out the key of a certain farm sound! And we in the audience are more enthralled than typical. We ate with the musicians, know them to be mortals—folks who share our penchant for farm fresh food. Connecting is not only a hunger, it is a feast.
This Fall join us to experience it all – dining, music, friends, farm fresh meal and the whole ambiance.
The Meal: Entirely from the Farm
Prior to the 7pm Friday night concert, there will be a farm supper. The entirely local (from the farm!), cozy, seasonal meal will be available at the farmstand from 5:00 to 6:30pm. $20 for adults, children 12 and under $5.
This meal will feature our pasture-raised meats and organically managed veggies of this season, an echo of summer and intro to fall inspired by Laura’s recent trip to France and will likely include:
- a Coq au Vin inspired dish, but with young chicken..perhaps a Poussin au Vin with Roasted Leeks
- French Breakfast Radishes with French butter
- Chard Gratin
- A tomato pudding inspired by a Montreal restaurant
- an end of summer salad
- Lattes on the Hoof with dessert

The Music: Highlighting the Music of Hungary & Estonia
To welcome Scrag Mountain Music’s first Composer-in-Residence, Lembit Beecher, they will highlight the music of Hungary and Estonia (Lembit’s own heritage). The Aizuri String Quartet from New York City will join to perform Béla Bartók’s String Quartet no. 1 and Lembit’s new quartet “These Memories May Be True.” With Lembit at the piano we are excited to present songs by Veljo Tormis and Zoltán Kodály and premiere some new arrangements/re-compositions of Estonian folk songs.
Concert begins promptly at 7pm in the Barn Event Space.
Come as you are. Pay what you can.

The Farmstand: Let us Pack You a Box
To make it easier to shop at the farm while you are enjoying the farm supper, we now provide an order form such that you can make a list of what you would like and we can pack it up and have it ready for you to pick up from the walk-in fridge/freezer after the concert. The farmstand will also be open and stocked with pasture-raised meats, organic veggies, eggs, milk and canned goods including our new hot sauces before and after the concert.
and, The Farm
Most of the animals will still be out on pasture, but the milking team including their suitor, Boris, always looks forward to the concerts and receiving visitors in the milking barn pre-concert.
