3.Dining

The Home Ranch Dining Room offers meals for its guests throughout the day. Patrons gather into the historic dining room, carefully decorated with flowers, candles, linens and natural light. Outside the many windows, guests can observe the nature all around them. For dinner, the Chef will explain his food preparation process, describing the ingredients used and offering a wine paring that would go well with the meal. The Home Ranch is known for always being fully stocked with wine to accompany each meal. Breakfast and dinner are the meals that are typically served in The Home Ranch Dining Room.

In addition to The Home Ranch Dining Room, meals are also offered at Clyde’s Farm. In this setting, food is prepared in an outdoor kitchen, and guests eat “al fresco”. Pizzas baked with farm fresh ingredients, appetizers, smoked or barbecued meat, and Western-style ranch cooking are just a few of the meals served at Clyde’s Farm. At Clyde’s Farm, the dress is much more casual, and guests are free to come by for a meal after a long day of horseback riding or fly fishing.

Lunch is normally served at The Lodge Deck. The meal is full of farm grown ingredients and produce. The picnic tables provide some shade for the guests to enjoy their buffet style lunch. Dessert is also included.

The Home Ranch also serves dinner at the campfire. Unlike the formal dining room setting, campfire dining allows kids to come, eat and play. Food is served buffet style, and guests sit at long picnic tables. There is also a flagstone area and fire ring with benches all around. The main chef incorporates his culinary spontaneity and the menu could consist of any of the following items:

-canapés

-sushi

-lobster tails

-corn on the cob

-steak

S’mores, guitars, song books and a sunset complete the night at The Home Ranch Campfire.

The Home Ranch is especially unique in its capacity to home grow their own produce on The Home Ranch Farm and Greenhouse to provide many of the ingredients that are used in the food prepared for its guests. This self sustainability was a vision realized by The Home Ranch founders and owners. Working with conservationists and local landowners that supported their mission and vision, they achieved the lasting protection of 8,000 acres of alpine valley.

Due to the conservation efforts of The Home Ranch’s founders, an ample variety of produce and organic beef, pork and chicken can appear on the menus and plates of vacationers. Visitors, in turn, learn from this collective conservation effort exactly where their food originates from. Tours of the Farm and Greenhouse are encouraged.
