Mountain High Harvesting
The SFR Farmstead Garden provides our Ranch kitchen with the freshest produce and eggs that you can get, it’s just a few hundred yards away. Throughout your stay our kitchen strives to use a variety of ingredients that you’ll find on your plate – like purple cauliflower or beats of every color and tomatoes that you may eat like candy right of the vine (we know we do). The Farmstead Garden brings a whole new meaning to “Taste the Rainbow”. And we have our flock of workers, our chickens, who we have put to work by providing nitrogen for the compost pile, replacing machine tillers, fertilizing the garden, turning compost, spreading mulch, disposing of your garbage (and scraps from the kitchen), and controlling pests. When staying and eating at Smith Fork a bonus is that guests, adults and kids alike, can learn where their food really comes from.
For guests who stay at the ranch they’ll not only get to indulge in the bounty produced by the gardens and our flock, they can even source it themselves. Take a tour of the Farmstead with our Gardener and help in harvesting that day’s produce while learning about how it came to fruition. Collect farm fresh eggs from the chickens that are use day-to-day in all aspects of the kitchen from those omelet specials in the morning to the custards & ranchman ice creams in the evenings.
