Event description

Description

Are looking for a special gift idea or fun family outing? Join us every second Sunday at Dharma Farm Animal Refuge for a tour of the refuge and the option to enjoy a delicious plant-based brunch; the food free with each $15 minimum donation to visit the refuge. The brunch menu changes each time; we provide it so that folks can learn about the wide variety of plant-based options. The main mission of this open-house series is to support the refuge and educate people about all the benefits of adopting a plant-based diet; so, what better way then to share a wide variety of vegan food options? This is why our buffet changes every week. During the meal people are seated at long communal dining tables, so you are sure to make some new friends. You do not have to be vegan or even vegetarian to attend. There is always live music during the brunch featuring our resident musician, Will Taylor, who can play a wide variety of music on both keyboard and guitar; often friends play along with him as well. After trying some food, you are welcome to go for a guided tour or just stroll around the park-like property where you can meet the animals and explore the refuge.

This event costs $15, which covers your admission to visit the refuge. One child under 12 may attend for free with a paying adult. Children 2-12 are otherwise half-price -$7.50 Please message us to let us know if you will be bringing a child who is eligible for a free admission.

The food is free for you to try once you have paid to attend the event. It will be prepared by volunteers and all proceeds go to support the animals in the refuge.

November 24th's brunch will be our Thank Goodness Brunch and we have decided to combine it with our 10th Annual Local Harvest Dinner! (The Merriam-Webster Dictionary states that "Dinner" is the primary meal of the day and can be served mid-day) We will feature Acorn Squash Rings filled with a wild and brown rice and lentil pilaf, steamed broccoli, roasted Brussel sprouts and root vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie with whipped coconut cream.

On December 8th we will have a flavorsome Burrito &Taco Bar, along with Nacho Fixin's. There will be a variety of fillings including pinto beans, black beans, brown rice, spinach, vegan chorizo, tofu, potatoes, corn, corn chips, vegan cheese, vegan nacho sauce, enchilada sauce, tomatoes, guacamole, v. sour cream, salsas, etc. We will have luscious coconut flan for dessert!

December 22: Solstice Brunch and Holiday Celebration. For this special brunch, we will have a Magnificent Lasagna resplendent with the seasonal colors of red (tomato sauce), white (vegan ricotta and mozzarella) and green (spinach). We will also have a bountiful Italian Salad and, of course, lots of toasty garlic bread. For dessert we will have Peppermint Bark Cheesecake. There will be a bowl of punch and mulled wine for the adults. Wear your ugliest Christmas sweater and you might win a prize!

January 5th: For our First Brunch of 2020 we will have a breakfast themed brunch. This meal will feature a return to the basics; we will have scrambled tofu, roasted potatoes and veggies, vegan sausages, and whole wheat waffles with your choice of organic maple syrup, or berries and fruit and nuts, too, if you like!

There is always endless organic, fair-trade coffee, teas, etc.

We reserve the right to change the menu if necessary.

People also sign up through the NC Triad Vegan Meetup Group and we can only seat about 28 guests inside.

All proceeds help support the Dharma Farm Animal Refuge, a nonprofit microsanctuary; all the food is prepared and served by volunteers.

One child under 12 may attend for free with a paying adult. Children 2-12 are otherwise half-price -$7.50 Please message us to let us know if you will be bringing a child who is eligible for a free admission.

*Allergen, warning, alert: There are almost always "gluten-free" options, but gluten, soy, and nuts are all present onsite and so there is risk of possible allergen exposure. Also, the farm has many plants, insects, farm animals and various cats and dogs, as well as water and terrain features that may be potential hazards; by attending you acknowledge that you attend at your own risk.

Please follow signs as you enter the property and watch and wait for any oncoming traffic as our driveway is only one lane. Please do not bring any pets. To keep things interesting, the menu will vary and will be updated weekly on our Facebook page Arcadia.Lodge.NC. As much as is feasible the ingredients will be organic, and many will have been grown or produced locally.
