Don’t expect typical ranch fare at Smith Fork Ranch. Executive Chef Marcus Parrott has a passion for creating artisanal food with a focus on local production – a large portion of the ingredients he uses come from North Fork Valley farms just down the road from the ranch. Some of it doesn’t even have to come that far, thanks to our organic farmstead. And of course, we’re serious wine lovers here too, with a carefully curated, Wine Spectator award-winning cellar stocked with more than 400 fine vintages from around the globe. Learn more.
