Farmer’s Field Dinner: Righand Distillery and Chartier Restaurant have teamed up for what’s sure to be an unforgettable family style dinner outside at Great West Farms. The dinner will be paired with cocktails made from Righand spirits. Geoff, the owner of Righand Distillery, buys wheat to use for his vodka, gin, etc. from Great West Farms. The leftover grains from the distillation process (called mash) are given to Gruger Family Fungi, who use the protein rich grains to speed up the growth cycle of their beautiful oyster mushrooms. Then, Chartier buys both the mushrooms and the spirits to use in the restaurant. How amazing, right?! There’s two seatings- June 14 & 15. Get tickets here.
