Welcome Autumn! Our September and October Schedule

On our Thornfield Acres Farm, we are in the early autumn harvest and farmers market season.  We are still selling our farm produce and products at the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market on Saturdays from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, through the end of October.

Steve is also making our pulled pork and beef brisket sandwiches at the Des Moines Farmers Market each Saturday, along with a variety of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches.  If you are in the Des Moines area on Saturdays from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, come and see us!

We also sell our farm’s produce out of our restaurant.  Call ahead and we’ll tell you what we have available.

Because of our harvest and farmers market schedule, we will be closed on Saturdays through October.  We are now open Sunday through Friday for dinner from 4:00 – 9:00 pm.

We plan to start serving lunch some time during October.  We will post our lunch schedule on this website, on facebook, and on twitter, when we are ready to start.  You can check out our upcoming lunch selections on the menus to the left, and above.

We will be open again on Saturdays beginning in November, for both lunch and dinner.

We are also working on setting up a little gourmet and gift shop in our restaurant dining room.  We will be adding products a few at a time, and we hope to be fully stocked before the holiday season.  We’ll keep you posted!

If we have to be closed for an unforeseen emergency, we will try to post it on this website, and on facebook and twitter.  It’s just the two of us, so sometimes things happen in our lives that keeps us from being able to open on schedule.  We’ll do our best to let you know.

Come see us!fall squash
