A Summer Night at Lakota’s Farm

August 2, 2021

You know the type of summer night that just sticks in your memory when you think of a perfect summer night?

They’re the best, and yes – they’re possible, even in your adult years. In fact, I just experienced a new one for my memory locker a week ago at Lakota’s Farm in Cambridge. I have to admit, I thought Lakota’s Farm was just a wedding venue. But I was wrong – it’s that and SO much more.

On their Lakota’s Events website, you’ll find all that they have going on this summer and fall, including their farm-to-table pop-up dinners which I was so fortunate to attend the first of this season! Last weekend, paired with Farmacy in Glens Falls, we were treated to a beautiful (and delicious) seven-course dinner, thoughtfully curated with local and seasonal produce.

Here’s a look at the full dinner. *Not pictured was the full-on assorted charcuterie board with cured meats, assorted cheeses, roasted + pickled veg, jam, and mustard.*

Table settings were mismatched china and vintage silverware
Beet carpaccio, pickled onion, spicy cuts, cured egg yolk
Cherry tomato salad, fresh mozzarella, basil, olive oil, microgreens
Seasonal green salad, pecorino cheese, scallion, crouton, blueberry vin
Sous vide + grilled fennel, tahini sauce, chevre cheese
Braised pork cheek, fresh polenta, napa cabbage slaw
Short rib pappardelle pasta, pork + beef bolognese sauce, pecorino cheese
Lavender blueberry panna cotta, white cake, pastry honeycomb, blueberry coulis

Insanely delicious. This dinner was outstanding – and the portions were perfect for two people. I love that they served three courses at once so we could skip around from one to the next and savor our favorite bites. If you’ve ever been to Farmacy, you know the polenta is life altering… and if you haven’t been, now you know.

We also had these adorable greeters/big floofs who made their way around the tables to say hello between courses!

ANDDDD we got to meet the namesake of the farm, Lakota, a beautiful male horse that owners Kimberly and her husband rescued.

When I say this was one of the most memorable summer nights of my life, I’m not exaggerating. Between the beauty of the farm, the passion of the owners, ultra-talented chef Colin Miner from Farmacy who prepared the courses in a warm pop-up kitchen, and the great company we had at our table, it was for sure a night to remember.

As I mentioned earlier, you can find all of the upcoming events on the Lakota’s Events website, with the next dinner coming up this Sunday, August 8th! The dinner is $85/pp and let me tell you, it is absolutely worth every penny. I for one will definitely be back again, and hopefully you guys will take advantage of making your own memories at Lakota’s Farm.
