The  Farmstead Garden

Nothing beats a summer day in California's wine country connecting with great friends, 
farm-to-table cuisine and world class wines.

A few days ago, we gathered with a group of friends at Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch in St. Helena, California.   (Farmstead is on Main Street, right street across from Tra Vigne.)   The property features a demonstration garden, a cute farmers' market stand, a general store, wine tasting room and the Farmstead restaurant.  

On our visit, we enjoyed lunch out on the patio.

And, of course,
everything tastes better when shared with friends.

 Bay Area Artisan Cheese Board

You can't go wrong with farm fresh fruit, honey and cheese.


Long Meadow Ranch organic beets from the little farmers' market stand next to the garden and restaurant. 

 Farmstead Beet Salad

My farm-to-table salad:  
Caramelized beets with sky hill goat cheese crema, greens and chimichurri.


Farmstead is a great place to gather and eat.  I can't wait to go back!

Looks absolutely delightful, Lisette and what could be better, as you say, than enjoying good food with good company! Lovely!
