There are plenty of reasons to travel: adventure, shopping, relaxation, etc. But, for food lovers, there’s no better reason to plan a vacation than to have a unique dining experience. And while you might think of Asia, South America, or Europe as go-to destinations, a luxury ranch in Wyoming believe they just created the ultimate foodie experience.
The Farm at Brush Creek, an offshoot of the award-winning Brush Creek Ranch, is set to open this July and will provide nine fully immersive food, beverage, and event experiences steeped in a “seed-to-table” philosophy. More than just having a high-end dining establishment on the property (which they will have as well), the vision of The Farm is to be a global culinary destination where guest can immerse themselves in cooking, brewing, distilling, and enjoying the finest, freshest ingredients.
“Brush Creek Ranch has become well known for the quality and depth of our food, beverage and spirits program, including our Ranch-raised Akaushi beef and produce from our on-Ranch greenhouse,” said Michael Williams, Executive Vice President and COO of Brush Creek Ranch, in a statement. “The Farm is the next evolution of this vision and will embody sustainability, providing our guests with a true ranch-to-table culinary experience that will greatly enhance their vacation with us.”
So, what’s involved exactly? Guests will be able to do things like being a farmer for a day in the Greenhouse (a 7,000-square-foot space that currently grows 25 different species of fruits and vegetables), where they will tend to/harvest the crops with the greenhouse staff. There’s a butchery experience in the Cheyenne Club kitchen where you will learn to break down primals of their ranch-raised wagyu beef into individual cuts. And dairy lovers can spend an afternoon of cheesemaking in the Creamery.
The Farm even has wine and spirits fans covered. They offer a blending seminar in the Brush Creek Cellar—a nearly 100-yard tunnel housing displays of some of the most exclusive wines available—where guests can create a signature Cuvée from base wines, create their own label, and then either take their bottle home or store in the Cellar to enjoy during their next visit. Plus, there’s a barrel tasting at the distillery where guests can taste Brush Creek spirits straight from the barrel in different stages and learn the methods of aging and blending.
Of course, there will be plenty of culinary options that aren’t as hands-on. The luxury dining restaurant will serve the freshest Brush Creek Ranch-sourced cuisine with a seasonal menu including end-to-end cuts of ranch-raised Akaushi beef and 500 wine varieties.
