Every Thursday evening a special feast prepared by Nebo Lodge will be served at the Turner Farm barn in Maine celebrating the abundant island harvest.
Guests at this now-beloved tradition enjoy a large, family-style feast featuring the freshest vegetables and meats raised at Turner Farm, including a seasonal cocktail and light appetizers served as they survey the farm grounds. The five-course meal, which includes local beers and fine wine, is served as the sun sets over the spruce-edged fields.
Round-trip boat transportation from Rockland will be provided so that guests can enjoy the event and return to the mainland in the same evening.
"Each summer, string lights are draped from the rafters and a table for sixty is set with white tablecloths, mismatched china, candles, and flowers. Dinner guests, cocktails in hand, amble about the barnyard and soak up the glorious view before taking a place at the table. One of the farm managers, James Blair or Brenna Chase, or perhaps Chellie Pingree herself, tells diners about the harvest and offers a toast. Then a feast prepared by Hallowell and the Nebo staff is served — barbecued ribs, perhaps, and slow-roasted pork shoulder, grilled lemon chicken, grilled eggplants, zucchinis, and peppers topped with chèvre, grilled corn with chipotle lime butter, cornbread, and fresh tomato salad."
