Another BGI favorite source for locally-grown produce is Blue Meadow Farms, also in the Anderson Valley
The focus is on natural and organic ingredients in the preparation of the bountiful fare found at the Brewery Gulch Inn. Drawn primarily from local farmers in Mendocino County, morning and afternoon menus are crafted to feature organically-grown fruits and vegetables; free-range poultry and livestock. During mushroom season, local foragers bring their products by the kitchen door at the Inn providing us with the freshest mushrooms from the surrounding forests.
...breakfast at the Inn is a culinary experience not to be missed. Housemade pastries, whipped Belgian hot chocolate, artisan coffee in a proprietary Brewery Gulch blend, organic eggs, fresh-squeezed juices, and a wide variety of selections from the seasonaly-changing, cooked-to-order breakfast menu are presented each morning. Guests may choose to dine by the iconic fireplace in the Great Room with a view of the birds at our back deck feeder, or en suite. And don't forget to ask Guy about the Inn's most famous creation, their Millionaire's Bacon.
From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, we felt wonderfully cared for. The staff showered us with individual attention, the accommodations were lovely and the food was comparable to a high-end restaurant, creative and plentiful. ─ San Francisco Chronicle

Exceptional food and wine have always been an integral part of the Brewery Gulch Inn experience. It is during the wine and light dinner buffet hour that the skills of Brewery Gulch Inn’s team of chefs truly shine. Creating the evening menu each day allows our culinary staff to focus on only the freshest local ingredients available. Past selections have included pepper-seared scallops, Moroccan lamb, Halibut Escabeche, Dungeness crab cakes, and mussel bisque. Served with a dessert and local beers and wines, many guests choose to make the wine hour their dinner and just relax and enjoy the ambiance of the inn.
“We had thought we would be having dinner at local restaurants, but that changed to lunch plans after we discovered on our first evening that the lovely dinners at the Inn would be hard to surpass. Breakfast was amazing, always consisting of regular (although nothing at BGI is regular) choices as well as homemade specials which were prepared with pride and great skill. The quality and selection of the food was probably the biggest (and most fabulous) surprise of our stay.” – Judy W.
