Farmer in Residence: VDV Dutch Acres Lamb

Follow us to Harvester Kitchen for a Discovery Dinner on Tuesday, August 30, 2022 celebrating our local farmers!  We are excited to announce Farmers in Residence: Sarah and Ryan VanDerVliet of VDV Dutch Acres family farm, Humbolt, SD.

Sarah and Ryan are passionate about providing you with high quality, flavorful lamb in a way that sustains farming and preserves the land and resources for future generations. Their sheep are grazed on a variety of nutrient-dense grasses and legumes producing a succulent, tender meat. Sheep improve pastures and rangeland by cycling vital nutrients back through the soil, minimizing erosion, and encouraging native plant growth.

Chef Bryan and the HK team have created an innovative tasting menu featuring their high-quality lamb. Becca Connelly, Restaurant Manager, has paired the menu with inspired selections of American wines.  Beer or non-alcoholic beverage pairings are also an option.
