Farm-to-Table in Benson

Daddy’s Neighborhood Fresh Market is now open in Benson. They provide fresh, local food that is sourced from within 100 miles of the market, making sure that folks can buy food that hasn’t traveled across oceans to get here. Buy food from Daddy’s if you want to know where your food came from, yet want the convenience of shopping at a market.

Autumn Beer Dinner

Make your reservation for the Oct 8 Autumn Beer Dinner featuring Black Oak Grill and Lucky Bucket Brewing Company. For around $30 you’ll get a three course meal and four Lucky Bucket beers.

Vala’s New Eatery

When you inevitably wind up at Vala’s Pumpkin Patch sometime this fall, be sure to check out their new eatery, “The Pie Barn.” An open kitchen allows customers to watch the pies being made. Fresh pies are served up at tables made by hand by Amish craftsmen with 118 year-old wood reclaimed from an old, torn-down Missouri church. Yes, really.

Happy Anniversary to the Dundee Dell
