Moody’s Bistro and Lounge is again hosting the “Dinners in the Barn” summer series at Sierra Valley Farms near Sierraville. Mark Estee, Executive Chef and Co-owner of Moody’s Bistro & Lounge and Chef de Cuisine Guy Frenette will prepare a gourmet feast using produce so fresh it was growing in the field hours before and serve the four-course meal in an historic 1936 barn. Prior to the event, guests can participate in a tour of the farm to observe first hand where their meal is coming from and hear the stories behind each of the outbuildings, many of which were kept intact but renovated to retain the charm of the farm. The dinners will be held to five evenings throughout the summer: July 11 and 12, and Aug. 22 and 23.

It just makes sense adding more nutrition from fruits and vegetables to every day diets will have a positive impact on health. Unfortunately, most people don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables. Those we do eat tend to be picked early, over processed, or overcooked and lack much of the nutrition provided by a variety of different fruits and vegetables.Many people find eating fruits and vegetables too inconvenient and too expensive and most fail to get the recommended 9 to 13 servings every day.Juice Plus+ provides whole food nutrition from 17 different fruits, vegetables and grains in a convenient capsule, chewable or gummie form. Clinical studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals have demonstrated that Juice Plus+ delivers key phytonutrients, reduces oxidative stress, helps support a healthy immune system and impacts several key indicators of cardiovascular wellness.There is also a Juice Plus+ Children’s Health Study (JPCHS), designed to determine what effect adding Juice Plus+ to the family diet can have. Those children eligible for the JPCHS can receive Juice Plus+ free when an adult enrolls as a Juice Plus+ Preferred Customer. Contact Patti Curtis at (866) 303-1254 or visit
