“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.
Join us to experience it all – dining, music, friends, farm fresh meal and the whole ambiance.

Inspired by the upcoming Fat Tuesday, a little Winter Farm-to-Table Creole Jambalaya Dinner

- Sippable All Farm Bone Broth
- the Farm’s Signature Red Velvet Brownies, in addition to Fat Tuesday, Valentine’s Day is coming!
- Coffee, Tea & Vermont Well Water
As always the meal will be dominantly made from our pasture-raised meats and organically managed veggies with a little support from other Vermont Farms and the fewest imported items, rice & cocoa for this meal!
Supper Reservations are strongly encouraged as we have limited seating for this winter, pre-concert meal.
As of Feb 2, 2016 we only have about 12 more spots for dinner.
Concert: Two Sopranos
7:30 pm in the Barn Event Space (923 Loop Road)
Scrag Mountain Music will be bringing in talented musicians and have an always awe-inspiring performance in store for us in the intimate setting of our barn. Artistic Director Mary Bonhag and her colleague, Boston-based soprano Jessica Petrus, will join forces to present a program of mostly early music that features two sopranos and violin. Lynette Combs will also make a return with her harpsichord.
The program will include the ecstatic Ave Generosa by the eleventh century mystic, philosopher, herbalist, abbess, composer and poet Hildegard von Bingen for two sopranos unaccompanied as well as the intoxicating harmonies of Claudio Monteverdi’s music for two sopranos and basso continuo. Soprano Jessica Petrus will be featured on “Le mort de Didon” (The Death of Dido) by French Baroque composer Michel Pignolet de Montéclair. The instrumentalists get to shine on a “dancy” trio sonata by Danish/German baroque composer Dieterich Buxtehude.
Concert begins promptly at 7:30 pm in the Barn Event Space.
Concert Reservations are strongly encouraged as we have limited seating for this winter concert and our last concert was a full house.
As of Feb 2, 2016, we have about 20 more seats for the concert (there is more concert space than dinner seats)
As always Scrag Mountain Music presents these concerts as “Come as you are, Pay what you can” A basket will be passed at intermission.

The Farmstand: Let us Pack You a Box
To make it easier to shop at the farm while you are enjoying the farm supper, you can place an order ahead 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 before and after the concert. Check the At the Farmstand list the week of the concert to see what is on sale.
Make it a Getaway!
Consider a winter get-away including a concert on- site. Farmstays are still available for weekends and holiday weeks through the winter. Consider the Farmhouse Inn for whole house rental or the Barn Guesthouse. Contact us for details and prices.
