From the web site: “The Mast Farm Inn has influenced us as a family and as entrepreneurs in very profound ways because its heritage and legacy is so present, real and authentic. It is in many ways what we believe in …  It is way beyond the customary facade and bluff of many enterprises. …It is the real thing…preserved, alive and inspiring. It presents itself to the world without pomposity or pretense, as it is. …we seek to respect its simple and profound dignity. We attempt to collaborate with what it is, as it preceded us, and will continue long after us. “

The restaurant ‘Simplicity at the Mast Farm Inn‘ is an award winning dining experience…serving organic…gourmet yet farm-style meals in a homelike relaxed atmosphere…simple luxury!  In the growing season the restaurant uses produce from their own organic farm garden, pasture raised meats, free-range dairy and eggs, and ingredients purchased as much as possible from local organic farmers and growers. Out of season, it will still be as natural and organic…as can be made, it may come from further away…but minus the chemicals.
