The Farm Table’s Vision

The Farm Table strives to provide the local and destination audience with a consistently high-quality dining experience featuring exclusively locally-sourced foods whenever possible, right on the Kringle Candle campus.

The Farm Table main dining room and Tavern are housed within a carefully restored and renovated farmhouse built c. 1800. It is a classic Georgian colonial style building first erected by the Hale family and expanded over the years as their clan and farm grew. No longer a farm by the 1970’s, it became an antique store and after that a book shop. The current renovations began in early 2011, and involved an extensive series of modern technological improvements to make the building more functional and energy-efficient.

Executive Chef Brent Menke is referred to by Mike Kittredge II as “The best chef in the world without a TV show.” Brent has cooked for luminaries including the British Royal Family, presidents, sheiks, rock stars, and America’s best-known computer billionaires.

A truly good restaurant should be more than a place to feed you;
it should nourish the body, educate the mind and entertain the spirit.
