Under the Stars

Back to Top of List
Feast on pretty surroundings, farm-sourced ingredients, and creative flair at a dinner rivaling that of any big-city establishment. 



Kick off your curated evening of agriculture and elegance with a glass of wine grown on-site and a stroll along prairie paths. On the patio, community tables made of hand-hewn elm connect guests with nature and one another during three-course alfresco meals (weekends from May to October). Starring farm ingredients, the menu exudes fine-dining panache with choices like autumn squash pelmeni, marjoram-plum chicken and rhubarb upside-down cake.

Give a grateful nod to the goats as you arrive on the farm grounds; they’re responsible for the soft and firm cheese varieties available at the on-site creamery and grilled goat cheese sandwiches at the seasonal Bramble Cafe. Venture into the fields to pluck your own plump blackberries or treat yourself to blackberry lemonade and blackberry scones. Dinner at the farm’s upscale restaurant is built around an ever-evolving prix fixe menu, which might kick off with a compressed watermelon amuse-bouche followed by salads, seafood and meats adorned with local produce. Try a flight of inventive frozen yogurt for dessert.

At an 1856 farmstead named for its early-day salty wells, savor an eight-course tasting menu foraged from nature and neighboring farmers. Served Friday and Saturday nights, the seasonally inspired menu changes weekly. Allow life to slow down as you sip craft cocktails and wine with plates such as broccoli soup with sprouts, heirloom purple mashed potatoes and pan-seared ribeye. Dine outdoors from May to October at reclaimed barnwood tables among walnut groves and resident chickens. As soon as winter’s chill arrives, dinner moves indoors to an antiques-appointed parlor that glows by candlelight.

Kansas City                        

Just north of the roaring Kansas Speedway, retreat to a grape-growing and wine-making haven tucked in a residential area. Seven varieties of grapes (3,000 vines) produce the white, red and fruit wines. After a vineyard stroll, refresh with a summertime wine slushie or mulled wine in fall.
