Thanksgiving is hands down, our favorite holiday. The entire day is filled with spending time with family while enjoying a meal prepared by yourself, or by the ones you love. There are no external expectations and everyone gathers to enjoy spending time with each other while celebrating family and friendship.

This year we wanted to share what our Thanksgiving Day Menu will look like. Although this year it will be primarily immediate family that attends, next year will look much different.

We are happy to announce that the planned Thanksgiving 2020 meal at the farm will come 3 years earlier than anticipated, and we will be hosting dinner next year. With both of our extended families and many friends to invite, we anticipate over 90 guests next  year.  

So this year we will enjoy the classic Thanksgiving Day Menu as described below.
