We have attended 3 dinner events here and the chefs and staff are all top notch-focus is on seasonal vegetables from the Chef's garden served in an interesting way-it's a must try!

Twice we were lucky enough to have Jamie Simpson share the CVI great foods. Both days were prior to events but oh my, this ios the place that sends specialty organic vegetables to the best restaurants all over the world. Any amazing place.

We have eaten here twice. The first time was fabulous! The second time, ok. This is a very gourmet restaurant. They grow all their own veggies! And they can a lot of it! The carrot cake and burnt carrot sorbet was melt in your mouth good! But we felt the second time we were shorted with the meal. No salad and not dessert! But it's very unique and the servers were awesome!

Wonderful quality, wonderful presentation. A place owned by the family who farms the land. True farm to table for their micro veges. Great parade of celebrity chefs. Highly recommended for a special night.

As two physicians with little time off together we (Colleen does the research) are much more into experiences than entertainment, but if you look for one thing and then get both, how good is that!? The CVI would have to be a well kept secret for those both informed and uninformed about grass roots culinary endeavors that have profound ecologic and health implications. We both do a great deal of physician wellness initiatives, and I would have to strongly state that CVI should be the mountain where Moses constructed the commandments or the Rock on which Christ built his Church. "To See Things In The Seed is Genius" Jamie Simpson entered our suite (by the way there is only one, but you would think it built for a Presidents Wife, who by the way has been here) as a very unassuming and humble young man who turns out to be the visionary of a new path. We began to talk of "what is here" which was a little like putting the first hole in the Hoover Dam of knowledge and perspective. Colleen is the "foodie" and I appreciate the botany inclusive of their pasteurized soil and ecologically injected 'proper bacteria' for the edible flowers, information that flowed from this young man's mouth like a highly desirable menu. Some of their greenhouses are regarded, during certain growing periods, as "clean rooms" (we couldn't go in), in a pesticide free environment of bee keeping, composting, naturalistic living aside the Huron River. "Farmer Lee Jones" is likewise a visionary, along with his bride Mary, of the implications of a property dedicated to bringing people back to the land and the land's opportunity for health and well being. You couldn't go to Disney World and hear as often as we did: "Can I help you? Would you like me to show you? Did you know, here try this. Let me know what you need ("we usually work from about 7am til midnight and you can walk the fields with me around 8am"). Deer, pigs, chickens, nuts, berries, 600 varieties of vegetables, Golden Retrievers and a pupply, plus Eagles and a nest on the property with a 5 star bedroom and a Viking gas range in our kitchen...what more could a couple want? Nothing pompous, internationally known. Not pretencious, because thet don't have to be when their motivations, vision, and intensions are of right mind. Caution: Don't go there if you don't GET IT! This place is sincerity in action, from one's palate to there satiety center. Real and Palpable. Do you think we're planning to go back?...HaHa, C&C
