Wine in a Can?

Francis F Coppola Chardonnay in a Can

When you mention wine in a can to people it can create some interesting facial expressions and when our wine broker introduced the various choices, I have to admit I was hesitant.  But after trying it, I was really surprised and thought maybe it would be something new and fun to try at The Speckled Hen Inn!   While we had some choices, we finally settled on Francis F.

We Support Local!

The Speckled Hen Inn is a working farm, producing over 35 fruits and vegetables for it’s farm to table multi-course breakfast experience. We believe in supporting local and have formed partnerships with various local family owned businesses because relationships matter.  We’re just a mom and pop small business ourselves, but we know that every dollar spent locally helps our partners thrive.  Gentle Breeze Honey is one of those special local partners and we not only use a lot of their honey in our unique farm to table breakfast creations, but we sell it as well!  You can find Gentle Breeze Honey in most local grocery stores, at the Dane County Farmer’s Market, and at The Speckled Hen Inn!

Buster and Bucky

THE LAMBS HAVE BEEN BORN!  If you are with us in May and June you can even bottle feed Bucky! For all our repeat guests, Buster is well known.  He’s the lamb that was bottle fed (by many of our guests!) and now he thinks he’s a dog – in fact, I guess he is our Sheep Dog.
