New Farmhouse Restaurant & Conference Center Gets Rustic

The cows are tipping themselves over at Fair Oaks Farms after seeing how amazing the new Farmhouse Restaurant and Conference Center looks. Located just 90 minutes from Chicago in Fair Oaks, Indiana, it’s the nation’s first large-scale “Our Farm, to Your Plate, In Our House” dining concept with 18,000 square feet of space that can accommodate up to 280 guests for lunch and dinner every day in addition to brunch on weekends. About 80 percent of the menu includes ingredients raised on the farm itself or supplied by a few other local growers.

Inside the conference center, planners can tap into ballrooms and boardrooms designed to accommodate groups small and large. Guests can also receive tours of the facility and shop in the Farmhouse Market & Bakery, where they can purchase baked goods and other souvenirs to take home. 

After falling under disrepair for years, Theater on the Lake has emerged from renovations as a brand-new indoor-outdoor venue just in time for summer events.
