Event description
A hike in the woods, followed by a magical meal in our yurt celebrating the history of wild game in Maine.

About this Event

The weather has turned here in Maine and autumn is upon us. While for many this means a change in wardrobe, back to school and an eye toward the sky for hints of an early snow; for others it is the unmistakable start to hunting season.

The history of hunting and fishing in Maine is robust. In 1897, Cornilia “Fly Rod” Crosby was the first person ever to receive a Maine Guides license. Crosby had discovered her love of nature when a doctor advised her to seek “a large dose of the outdoors” which then prompted her to leave her desk job at a bank. A move to Rangeley followed and she became well-known throughout the state and beyond for her writings and passion for the outdoors; attracting out-of-state enthusiasts to Maine’s woods and streams. As she was once quoted "I am a plain woman of uncertain age, standing six feet in my stockings...I scribble a bit for various sporting journals, and I would rather fish any day than go to heaven."

It is with a nod to “Fly Rods” passion for Maine and all its glorious natural offerings that we gather once again for our last meal of the 2019 season - our Wild Game & Wine Dinner at Tops’l Farm. Maine Chef Ken Burkett will be serving a 5 course meal prepared over an open fire and highlighting fall flavors and wild game. This year we are joined by the team from Rebel Rebel Wine Bar in Somerville MA to pair rare & fine wines with each course. It’s without a doubt a most epic collaboration.

Limited to 36 spots - so don't delay if you are interested in securing a spot for the yurt dinner. Please note that there is a considerable walk/hike involved to get to our yurt – if transportation is required it must be set up in advance.

Tickets are $125 each and includes a welcome drink & snack around the fire, a 5 course family style meal and wine pairings (and of course gratuity for our amazing staff).

FAQs - Here is the scoop!

Will there be a wait list?

Yes. Please email us at hello@topslfarm.com and we will add your information to our wait list.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

We do not have age requirements for this event, however given our limited number of spots all spots are the same price. It should be noted that our culinary events celebrate "slow food", and as such this pace might not be suitable for young children.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

All parking is at the Tops'l Farm event barn. Check-in is at our Camp Store and guests will be directed to the path to the yurt location after check in. As a reminder, our dinners involve a hike that is part of the experience - which might mean rain coats/umbrellas, most certainly means sensible shoes and a sense of adventure. We are able to accommodate rides for those who are physically unable to make the walk, and these need to be coordinated in advance.

What can I bring into the event?

Sensible shoes, layers,flashlight/headlamp for the walk back. A sense of adventure. Big appetites. Smiles for your neighbors and friends.

Are drinks included?

This is a very special meal in that we are offering complimentary wine tastings with each course. We always kick off our meals with a welcome cocktail hour and a snack around the fire. For this meal we are collaborating with Rebel Rebel Wine Bar and each course will be paired with a rare and fine wine!

We will refund your ticket up to 7 days before the event. If you are unable to attend after that window and are able to send someone in your place, please contact us at the information above and we will update the guest list. No refunds after the 7 day window.
