Reconnect at Beach Plum Farm this Fall and Winter with a completely interactive farm-to-fork cottage experience. For the first time ever, our farm will host structured culinary retreats focusing on nourishment, harvest, celebration and fellowship. We've named these escapes Rooted, with a goal to ground and restore the basic tenets of our relationship with nature and farm life.
For four days, you'll be immersed in our world, working personally with the Beach Plum team. Choose to join us for our Fall or Winter Harvests—our farmers will help you gather ingredients from our rows and paddocks, while Executive Chef Wes Thompson will guide you through seasonal recipes tailored to your hand-picked crops. Our beautiful cottage accommodations and gentle open spaces provide the perfect setting to explore, create, taste, and live in simple harmony with the land.
