Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch has taken a distinctive approach to restaurant corkage protocol through our “Corkage for Community” program. Instead of the typical $10 to $20 corkage fee charged for opening a bottle of wine brought to a restaurant, Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch collects a $5 fee for every guest's bottle. This unusually low corkage fee is donated to a different community-based not-for-profit organization each month.
Our corkage program is another way we can promote our location as a community meeting place and support our neighbors in the community at the same time. We want to encourage vintners, growers, and wine enthusiasts to come to Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch to show off their wines while at the same time contributing to our local community.
In the five years since Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch first opened its doors, more than $200,000 has been donated to community-based not-for-profit organizations, including:
