Corkage for Community

Corkage for Community

Throughout the Month of April, bring your own bottle of wine to Farmstead and taste from their spectacular menu. Corkage fees will be donated back to the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Helena and Calistoga. This unique program was created by Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch to support local, community-based nonprofit organizations monthly. We collect a $15 corkage fee from guests at the restaurant who bring their own bottle of wine and then donate the fees to different beneficiaries each month. In the 14 years since we launched Corkage for Community (and our restaurant first opened its doors), we have donated more than a half million dollars to local, community-based nonprofit organizations.

Torque the “Helicopter Dog”

Warrior Dogs Unleashed

Honoring the service and sacrifice of the American military and working dogs, this emotional, inspiring exhibition takes a deep dive into the heroic partnership between military dogs, their trainers and handlers and veterinarians, and other soldiers with whom they serve. The exhibition includes 16 lifesize wooden sculptures by acclaimed artist James Mellick, including Cairo, who deployed to Afghanistan with the U.S. Navy SEAL Team for the Bin Laden raid. A kid-friendly “petting dog” sculpture by James Mellick is also included. Visitors of all ages will learn about the history of dogs in combat, about puppies “born to be brave,” their selection, training and specialized combat gear, and the handlers and trainers who make them battle-ready. Discover, through rare photos and stories, the extraordinary bonds warrior dogs share with the armed forces they serve and protect. A portion of the exhibition is dedicated to working dogs serving with Veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress, First Responders, Law Enforcement Firefighters, and other civilian forces. Support the Museum and the Tug McGraw Foundation by shopping our exclusive Warrior Dog merchandise in our Museum Store and online, and adorn your own canine warrior! Important Exhibition Note: Some exhibition sculptures depict images that could be sensitive for children and Veterans. Visitor discretion is advised.
