Meacham's Garden

Meacham's Garden

Medinah is now hosting healthy farm-to-table meals that feature produce farmed on property. In the organic garden—tucked away just inside the club's main gate—over 25 beds have been planted with:

  • 34 different fruits and vegetables
  • 17 savory herbs and garnishes
  • 6 varieties of fragrant and edible flowers

The vegetables and herbs are featured on the club's "Garden Menu," while some of the fruits are being turned into jams, enhancing seasonal dishes, and garnishing cocktails.

Many of the stately maple trees that adorn the courses are being tapped for maple syrup, which is served in our restaurants atop waffles, pancakes, and French toast, and added to vinaigrettes, marinades, and sauces, as well as being sold in The Shop at Medinah.

We have our own bee colony, starting with two hives that help pollinate the garden while producing honey. Besides providing food for Medinah's members, the gardens, coops, and other all-natural sources are part of a concerted effort to create "a homey, nurturing, comforting, and intimate community."
