Events at the Farm
Summer is almost here and I am quickly making a “summer bucket list” to do on my time off. Number one on my list? I would really like to attend a true “Farm to Table” dinner and thanks to the folks at Green Dirt Farm, I just might get my chance!
Green Dirt Farm, located in beautiful Weston, MO, was founded by Sarah Hoffmann in 2002 when she left a position in the medical field to begin a small farm business. Her drive and passion for artisenal cheese and environmental sustainability led to what her (all-women led!) farm business is today: Green Dirt Farm. The farm produces cheese and yogurts made from the happiest sheep on Earth. Raising only grass-fed sheep on carefully tended pastures produces happy sheep and high-quality, flavorful milk; making unique and delicious cheeses and yogurts.
The farm, not open to the public, puts on events to showcase their quality foods. This year’s events include Cheese Appreciation Tasting events and Farm to Table dinners. These events, held in the fully covered barn on the farm, includes a four-course plated dinner prepared by the guest chef that features our 100% grass-fed lamb and award-winning artisan sheep’s milk cheeses- all served with the sunset as a back drop at the harvest table. There are ten dinners set for this season, starting in May with Chef Ted Habiger, Owner and Executive Chef of Room 39. Scheduled dinners can be found here.
A less-expensive experience is the Cheese Appreciation Tasting. They too are held under the covered barn but are a fun and casual way to experience some truly remarkable flavor combinations. I have my eye on the KC Homegrown event on August 13- a cheese and beer tasting that highlights some regional cheeses and Kansas City craft beers. Tickets for all events are on sale now.
Can’t make it to the farm? Delicious Green Dirt Products can be found at many local area stores. For a complete list, click here. Regardless on how you try it, these cheeses and yogurts are high quality and contributing to our local community. #SupportLocal #EatLocal
