Farm-to-table dinner: Mint Creek Farm

August 10, 2013 @ 2:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us at Mint Creek Farm in Stelle, IL for a farm-to-table dinner featuring Ritz-Carlton executive chef Mark Payne!

Come on out to the farm to learn how rich soils and perennial grasses combine to create our wonderful meat.  Enjoy a relaxing tour around the farm and then sit down with fellow farm supporters for a delicious dinner.

2:30 pm: Meet the trolley at Greenhouse Bed and Breakfast and join farmer Harry Carr for a tour of Mint Creek Farm.  There will be plenty of time to visit all the animals living on the farm including cows, chickens, ducks, pigs, sheep and goats.

Dinner: The trolley will circle back to the B&B for dinner. Mark Payne, the executive chef of The Ritz-Carlton Chicago’s deca restaurant will be the guest chef for the evening.  Mark is a London native who has worked in the Ritz-Carlton/Four Seasons group since 1997.
