Harvest Moon Dinner by Enos Farms

Erin + Jeremy are the fabulous duo behind Enos Farms, their catering business that revolves around locally-grown and impeccably-sourced food. Their enthusiasm and talent for what they do is amazing. We first met these two at a wedding we were all working at, then the following morning we received an email asking us if we would be interested in photographing *their* wedding next summer! We became fast friends, then they invited us to document this wonderful dinner.

It was an unusually (but welcomed) warm and sunny October day for this outdoor, five course progressive dinner in Spring Green, WI. If you’ve never been to the Driftless Region of Wisconsin, you’re missing out. :) The afternoon began with appetizers at the bottom of the hill — where many of the veggies for the dinner were grown and harvested. Over the course of the evening we worked our way up the hill, stopping to enjoy soup and Furthermore beer. Once at the top, we were seated and served salad and the main course. After dinner, we walked down a little path, grabbed a wool blanket and a cup of the richest hot chocolate we’ve ever tasted. To finish off the night, we enjoyed maple creme brulee and gathered around a massive bonfire that Jeremy created for us all to enjoy, as we watched the sun set and the full harvest moon rise.

We’ve come to believe that good food tastes even better when it’s paired with a beautiful environment and wonderful experience. Even though, upon arrival, we only knew two of the 18 guests, by the end of the night we felt as though we were dining with family.

I was once asked if I could name the most delicious meal I had ever eaten. Now I’m easily able to answer that question.

Here’s a little taste :) of the day:
