Dear Clubs and Organizations,

Thank you for your interest in Stream Cliff Herb Farm, Restaurant, Winery & Antiques. We offer many different options to choose from as you plan your visit. We are open Wednesday through Sunday, early April through mid-October. The Winery remains open until the end of the year and lunch is served in our beautiful Winery dining area.

Our base group package is $18.95 per person. This includes your choice of the menu options found on the following page. All meals include our popular Lemon Layer Dessert or Chocolate Explosion and a non-alcoholic drink. This option is available for any group having at least 15 people and can be purchased alone or with one of the lectures or projects listed below. By purchasing the lunch package for your group of 15 or more, you may also use our private dining area for up to 3 hours. This is a nice place for bridal or baby showers and also makes a good meeting space.

For groups of 15 or more we offer additional activities which can be added to the base price with lunch. Many groups enjoy adding a lecture and guided garden tour to make their day special. There are several interesting lectures to choose from each given by owner, Betty Manning or horticulturist Greg Manning, the cost is only $5.00 per person, plus luncheon package price. Lectures offered are Culinary Herb Growing, Fragrant Gardening, Sun & Shade Flower Gardening, or Morgan's Civil War Raid at Stream Cliff Farm. A favorite for many church groups is a spiritual lecture entitled, God is With Me in the Garden.

We also offer several make and take craft or garden projects. The workshops offered are Culinary Herb Pot, Hanging Flower Basket, Flower Pot or Bay Leaf-Spice Garland with Raffia. These projects are available for an additional $19.00 plus the luncheon package. Another option is a Spice Potpourri Blending class which is offered for $6.00 plus the luncheon package price. All listed make and take projects require a 3-week advance reservation accompanied by a $10.00 per person non-refundable deposit for supplies. (Excluding the Spice Potpourri Blending class). A final count and total balance is due one week prior to your arrival. You may add to this number by calling the Farm in advance, but the final count may not be subtracted from one week prior to your visit.

We are excited to offer an opportunity for groups who enjoy visiting the Winery. The Winery offers a special group event which pairs chocolate and wine. Featured are four delicious wines paired with four decadent chocolates. The fee for the Chocolate and Wine Pairing is $7.00 per person. This is a nice way to spend the afternoon with friends or club members.

By choosing one of the group package meals we will be better able to seat your party together and serve you in the most efficient manner while giving your group a savings. If your group wishes to order off the menu individually we will do our best to seat you as tables become available.

For groups smaller than fifteen, you may make a reservation in the Twigs & Sprigs Restaurant for lunch and use our garden seating for needed meeting space. We are unable to accommodate meetings held in the restaurant. If possible please have one person responsible for payment. There is no minimum number of guests required to eat in the restaurant.

Of course the Farm is open to the public, therefore, your group is welcome to browse the gardens and shops without being required to have a meal, although most groups choose to have lunch while at the farm to make their visit complete.

We looking forward to hearing from you as you make a reservation for lunch and plan your visit with us.

Policies for Make and Take Craft Projects

All craft classes require 3-week reservation lead time for supplies. Minimum number attending for all classes is fifteen. To secure a date, booking should be done in advance with an approximate number. At three weeks prior to your make and take function a $10.00 per person deposit is required for supplies. You may add to this number after this date and we will accommodate these additional people if supplies are available. A $10.00 per person deposit is required at the time of adding to your number. Please inform us as soon as possible as many classes require time to acquire supplies. All deposits are non-refundable and are subtracted from the balance due on the day of your event.

Our policy for group functions requires an attendance of fifteen. If your group is less than fifteen we would suggest inviting friends or family to come for this special day to help you meet that number. If your group fails to meet the fifteen-person minimum please understand your group will be charged the amount of the fifteen-person minimum. Another option for small groups not wishing to have a program, lecture or guided tour is to make reservations to eat in Twigs & Sprigs Restaurant. Then your group may enjoy your own self-guided tour, shopping and plant selections. All groups of more than eight should make reservations for eating. Then those groups are welcome to use the garden seating if a small meeting is needed at no charge. We are unable to accommodate meetings held in the restaurant.
