Locavore Farm presents the best in outdoor dining, June through October (Saturdays) Each season, the Jones family grows the ingredients for a multi-course feast served at their beautiful, 110’- ft hand-crafted farm table, set across the fields and gardens of their 30-acre estate.
Dine on the Land is a four-hour dining retreat. The grounds open at 5 PM and guests check-in at the outdoor bar to raise a glass to the slow life. With a locally crafted beer, wine or seasonal cocktails and bourbon lemonade in-hand, Farmer Jones will take you on a walking farm tour to learn about their passion for land, food, and community.
Ingredients are picked hours before guests arrive. The outdoors become a rustic kitchen where every course is smoked, charred, and roasted on a 12’-foot wood-fire grill. Menus highlight the flavors of every in-season vegetable as well as wholesome, pasture-raised meats. A light bite is served upon your arrival, followed by four more seated courses before guests gather around the fire with homemade marshmallows.
Throughout the four-hour experience, guests enjoy live music, dance in the grass, reconnected with friends, family and wide open spaces in one of Chicagoland’s richest agricultural communities. Grant Park (IL) located in Kankakee County – 43 miles south of downtown Chicago.
