I just read the review of Cloudland that I wrote here 3 years ago, and I'm happy to report that it is still as wonderful as ever. I didn't research it, but I think the same chef is still there and he's quite amazing. Cloudland is only open Friday and Saturday evenings, and you do need to reserve in advance. You will not know what you will be eating (although they do post the menu online a few days in advance), as it depends on the time of year it is and what type of ingredients the chef has been able to source from local purveyors. We started with a delicious butternut squash soup with crème fraiche, and their wonderful, signature Cloudland sourdough bread. Our main course consisted of 2 types of pork - a cider brined pork tenderloin and braised pork shoulder, served with a winter vegetable hash..both were amazing. The dessert was an apple cake with a cinnamon ice cream. True farm to table...all sourced from local farms. Wonderfully fresh and delicious. Just a couple of important points. It is a set menu for all..you cannot choose what you will have, so be sure to check in advance. I believe they can accommodate vegetarians however - I think I read that somewhere - and I'm sure they do a great job of it with all the fresh produce they avail themselves of. Also, Cloudland is BYOB. There is a minimal fee for corkage should you choose to bring your own wine. They also have a selection of cider, teas and coffee available. I will be looking forward to returning to Cloudland again in the future!

We ate here after reading the reviews and on the recommendation of our innkeeper. What a find! You do drive several miles on hard packed dirt roads to get here but well worth it. They serve a nightly meal, farm to table. There is no selection so not a place to go if you are a fussy eater. It is also BYOB with a communal ice bucket if you have a wine you need chilled. The night we were there they served pork, it was excellent. The portions are large so we should have asked for a break between our starter and entree but instead we asked for a break before dessert. They served a pumpkin filled cannelloni for a starter that was outstanding. Dessert was an apple tart with cardamon ice cream, again excellent. They have a small framed menu on the table listing all ingredients and on the reverse side they tell you where all of the ingredients are from. We thought that was really cool. The owner and another server were there and the service was excellent. Reservations are a must.

We reserved dinner for two at this family farm and we were so impressed with the gourmet meal that was prepared for us. We had a bottle of local wine on the back porch as we waited for our table and it was cool and we heard the black cows mooing on the hills! Our three course meal was made with all local ingredients...from the pork to the greens to the honey in our dessert. Our server was very friendly. Be careful if you drive up to the farm at night if you're not used to rural driving as it's a narrow road and very dark. Worth the trip!

These people "get it". They've created not only a dining establishment, but an experience. They tell you about "the farm" and how the Cloudland Farm dining experience came to be. It's nearly all farm to table, supporting local businesses around them. Kathy, the owner, comes to every table, and is so personable, she just endears herself to you. Rachel was our server, and also was top notch.... just a delight! This is a fixed menu, but I did see some substitutions, so they will modify if you need them to. Our dinner was squash soup, a pork dish to die for (we thought it would be a tenderloin, but it literally was like pulled pork when you began to cut into it... so delicious and tender). Apple cider donuts looked great, but were a bit dry. I would have preferred a salad to the squash soup, so wish I would have asked for this. BYOB.... so make sure you bring a good drink to accompany your meal. You won't regret this!
