Farm-to-Table Dining at the Artisan Restaurant, Tavern & Garden

Artisan Restaurant, Tavern & Garden is one of the very first “true” farm-to-table concept restaurants. Not familiar with the idea? A farm-to-table dinner is a meal that's prepared on-site with ingredients sourced from our farm and other local producers—over 20 local farms, to be exact.

We don't have an exact re-opening date yet, but we expect around Memorial weekend in May when we can resume our popular outdoor dining again... 

For inside dining, per the Governor's State of Emergency Order, advance reservations will be required and masks are required to be worn when not eating. Tables are well spaced in accordance to covid-19 guidelines, and tables are not set in advance with table top items with customer safety in mind.  

Artisan Restaurant celebrates the agriculture and food craftspeople of Vermont, sourcing ingredients from over 20 local farms. Executive Chef Frederic Kieffer and Head Chef, Ralph Capalupo, orchestrate operations and create seasonal exceptional food, served in our elegant dining room full of modern country charm.


We are pleased to continue to offer our take-out food service as an alternative to indoor dining.  We also have paper plates and plastic silverware available if you are taking away from the property.  Current menus can be found here

Orders can be placed online or by calling 802.365.7713 and payment will be credit card only.  Phones will be staffed by the restaurant from 3pm onwards Wednesday through Sunday.

Tavern & Garden

Our Tavern is currently closed as part of our Covid-19 operations.

The Tavern & Garden is a cozy and casual gathering place with a large flat-panel TV for sports and weekly live music where friends can hang out. The bar features an impressive variety of local beer and hard cider, small batch wines and cocktails. In the summer months, we have two outdoor dining areas with our patio overlooking the gardens and ponds, plus a small courtyard in front of the restaurant, both serving al fresco dining.
