Burger Night is open, rain or shine

Thursday & Friday 4pm-9-ishpm

Saturday noon-9ishpm

Sunday noon-7ishpm

The Farm Store is open the same hours AND Monday & Tuesday 10am-2pm


We’re celebrating Pollinator Week at Burger Night! Pollinators like bees, birds and butterflies create healthy ecosystems for wildlife as well as improve the soil where our food grows.

In the US alone, pollinators help produce almost $20 billion worth of products every year (but I think we can all agree their work is priceless).

Keep in mind that not all pollinators are overtly beautiful. For example:

  • Ants pollinate peonies
  • Wasps pollinate figs
  • Beetles pollinate magnolias &
  • Mosquitoes pollinate orchids!

(We also welcome our bat friends, another unusual pollinator, and swallow friends to keep those mosquitos at bay!)

We’re all about creating welcoming spaces for our pollinator friends whether they “fly by night” or spread their beautiful wings by day or here at our diverse regenerative farm.

Our strength lies in diversity (nutrient-dense meat and resilient farms are created this way)...

AND the same is true with our little community, which is why we are so happy to support our fellow farmers and local producers!

In addition to all our winged friends mentioned above, look at who and what else will "bee" at Together Farms this weekend:

Burger of the Week: The Beez Kneez

  • 100% grassfed, hand pattied beef patty
  • pear, honey & ginger compote from Quince & Apple
  • melted brie
  • ginger-infused Kaiserson honey drizzle 🍯
  • Applewood smoked, no-weird-stuff bacon
  • a toasted brioche bun to hold all that sweet & salty deliciousness together

This Burger of the Week is the Beez Kneez! (Also, anyone else need a metaphorical brioche bun in their life 🤣)

Thursday, June 20 - Summer Solstice!

“Celebrate” the longest day of the year with 20% off the Beez Kneez burger

(I don’t celebrate this day because I LOVE the long days and I know what this day means: darkness is coming… along with some other things that shall not be named.)

Trivia, 7-8pm: Banned Books, Movie Car Chases, SNL Actors, Rock Ballads, TV Theme Songs & Cocktails

A super fun game with a bunch of themes inside one game! Includes a picture round, audio round, and more! Bring your friends!

Honey Tasting with Drew of Kaiserson Bee Company, 5-8pm

Kaiserson specializes in small-batch, single-origin honeys from the Chippewa Valley. By taking small harvests frequently throughout the season and jarring them by location, they can highlight a place and time as told by floral nectars.

Last season they harvested 30 unique batches from 12 locations both in the city of Eau Claire and the surrounding countryside.

Join them to taste a small selection of their harvests and be a part of a discussion on the importance of pollinators in our world.

Crazy! So if you haven't gotten here enough (or at all!? 🤨) this is your official notification that it's time to start worrying and making arrangements. You know who finds a way EVERY WEEK? Jordan and Nikki! Every. Single. Week. They are here - from 30+ minutes away too! And often with friends. Last year, they missed one week so then they had our staff deliver burgers to their fridge for when they got back home. That's dedication. How do you honor supporters like that?! A plaque? A t-shirt? A free drink? I know! Let them decide the Burger of the Week! So this winter I asked them what their favorite burger would be and told them no matter what they came up with, we'd do it.[Then I nervously awaited their response and hoped that they had not seen my April Fools menu from a few years ago....which still cracks me up btw.]Behold..... Burger of the Week: Get Jikki Wid It They decided on a cubano-style burger! (Phew....where would I even get ground bald eagle from?!)  100% grassfed, hand-pattied beef pattySlices of no-weird-stuff-hamSwiss cheeseDijonnaise PicklesOn a brioche bun and then all pressed together  We made a cubano-style BOTW way back in 2019 and now we're going to try it again all because Jordan & Nikki asked us to!

Even without her here, I have a feeling this trivia is a going to a dang good time. There is even an audio round and you've still got plenty of time to refresh yourself on lyrics and find those Swiftie friends of yours! But then Taylor can just move her little self on over because Ryan and Tom are coming!!  Friday, July 12 LIVE MUSIC from Ryan Howe, 6-9pmRyan is a multi-instrumental performer; he will be on keys AND guitar and is going to play/sing you some tunes! You are going to love this!

Pretty rare we have a musician that tickles the ivories! Saturday, July 13 LIVE MUSIC from Tom Hipps, 5:30-8:30pmAre you ready for some covers and original folk/rock songs, 60's-70's-80's blues to classic country and everything in between?
