“Farm to table” is all the rage in the current culinary scene, but how about spending a night going Table to Farm? Start with a winemaker’s dinner at Living Farm Cafe in Paonia, Colorado. During this fall dinner series, Chef Mike will construct a multi-course meal paired with local wines and spirits for an educational and social evening at a truly farm to table restaurant. After eating, check out Chef Mike’s family farm right down the road to see where the ingredients are grown. On Tuesday nights, from 7-8pm, the farm welcomes visitors and members of the community to “Love a Lamb.” Spend a few hours petting, snuggling and loving some of the farm’s cutest creatures. This event helps the lambs socialize and helps create a bond between farmers and townspeople. The Living Farm also offers felting classes in the winter, tours and other events.
