3 dining options at the 2017 Fall Festival

Choose from three different dining options during the Fall Festival:

  • Picnic lunches – Order a family picnic when at the gate when you enter the farm, then pick it up later at the picnic counter at The Well. Take this conveniently packed lunch with you and find your own scenic spot on the farm for enjoying your meal.
  • Farm-fresh fast food – We’ll have a special counter this year just for faster items, like hotdogs, barbecue and our $1-per-ear Snead’s Sugar ‘n’ Spice Sweet Corn, grilled with special sauce.
  • Field-to-Fork dining – This is our traditional sit-down service in the Sneads’ backyard. Order at the counter and find a seat under the tent!

We will be open on weekends, 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., now through Oct. 31.

A fresh concept in dining

Snead’s Farm and the Sunken Well Tavern are redefining farm-to-table dining.

This innovative farm-based restaurant opens on select weekends, serving up delicious sandwiches, soups and desserts made by the chefs of the Sunken Well Tavern.

The Well at Snead’s Farm will also offer a variety of Virginia craft beers and ciders.

Dishes are made with ingredients grown right on the farm, meaning these meals’ travel time from field to fork can be measured in steps.

20160915-20160915-dsc_0263The restaurant is located in the guest house behind the Snead’s Farm farmhouse. It’s smack in the middle of all the action on the farm, whether you visit during Fall Festival season, Christmas Tree season or the summer growing season.

The Well takes all major credit cards and has comfortable, casual, family-friendly seating under a tent in Emmett Snead’s own back yard.

“I love being on the farm, so for me, to be able to be on the farm, get something good to eat, sit around and enjoy it—that’s something pretty unique,” said Sunken Well owner Paul Stoddard.

Stoddard’s menu will vary based on seasonal availability of ingredients.
