Farm Dinner Series at Prairie Fruits Farm, Year 2. 

We can not get enough of Prairie Fruits Farm! So we are goin' back down to Champaign once a month this summer and fall to host cool dinners and pop ups on the farm! Bonus: these events include a farm tour and (gasp) encounters with adorable baby goats. Come down to the farm and hang with us! 

Tickets are on sale for all dinners and pop ups now! 

Saturday July 8 - Burger Pop Up Dinner • Two seatings 4:30-6:30pm and 7pm-9pm • $40

We made our name serving burgers at the Green City Market for 6 years. Now we want to bring this burger magic to the farm! The burger is fresh ground, hand pattied, and char grilled, topped with seasonal goodies, local cheese, and full flavored mayo, and served on a soft bun. A seasonal side accompanies, as well as a gelato sundae. 

Sunday August 13 - Breakfast Cubanos! Brunch Pop Up • Two seatings 10am-12pm and 12:30pm-2:30pm • $40

Breakfast Cubano Sandwiches?! YES PLEASE!  SDC Executive Sous Chef Becca’s specialty is her magnificent cubano. Pork, Nueske's Ham, Swiss Cheese, House Made Pickles, Chipotle Mayo, and Mustard Butter on a Ciabatta Panino. YUM. At Prairie Fruits, we’ll add Farm Eggs to the sandwich to brunch it up. The cubano is served with a fresh Tomato, Melon, and Mint Salad. Aaaaand…. Rum Cake Doughnuts! Perfect brunch food.

Saturday September 9th - 100 Yard Dinner • 5 course seated dinner • $100 sold out - waiting list only

Saturday October 14th - Pizza Pop Up Dinner • Two seatings 4:30-6:30pm and 7pm-9pm • $40

Josh’s pizza obsession benefits all of us. We'll bring his beloved square-style pizza to Champaign for the final event of the farm series. Pizza Night on the farm! Toppings include local meats and cheeses, tomato sauce made from tomatoes grown at PFF, a fall side green salad, and tiramisu for dessert.
