2018 Picnic Season to open Saturday, April 28th, 2018
Spring welcomes the beginning of (hopefully! ) warmer weather and the start of Nashoba’s picnic season!
Join us on Saturday, April 28th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for our annual PICNIC SEASON KICK OFF.
Picnics will be available for pick up from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Wednesdays to Sundays. On this special kick off day, we will also be offering an outside cash bar of select picnic pairings to enjoy with your lunch as well as one free wine pairing (5 ounces) will be awarded to the first 50 online picnic orders. ID Verification required.
The afternoon will also include LIVE MUSIC with JAMES KEYES from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Open to public. Free Admission.
With little more than an acoustic guitar and his low growl of a voice, James Keyes has been playing his trade for years in the taverns and bar rooms of New England. His music is a modern version of an old tradition steeped in folk and blues.
Lawn games, fresh air and sweeping orchard and waterfront views from your picnic table. New for 2018! Advance, online reservations for picnic tables. More info to follow.
Orders may be placed on-line only. ORDERS PLACED CANNOT BE CANCELLED OR RE-SCHEDULED. Online ordering will not be open until the week of April 23rd as we implement our new ticketing platform.
We only sell a limited number of sandwiches for each day and often close our on line store once we have received a certain number of orders. Once closed it is impractical to re-open the store so we do not allow orders to be cancelled or re-scheduled. When placing an order you are accepting the risk that your plans may change or that the weather will not cooperate.
PLEASE READ THE NOTATION FOR DATE AND TIME OF PICK UP BELOW.
Once the Picnic Lunch season starts our delicious gourmet picnic lunches will be available from the end of April until the end of October 2018 except when the restaurant is closed for vacation or during our festival days. Our lunches are fresh and prepared daily by J’s, our award winning Zagat rated gourmet winery restaurant and are available on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Picnic Lunches TO GO can be ordered at any time on-line but are available for pick up at the JAAS Snack Shack only between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Orders for the same day must be placed prior to 3:00 pm. Please allow at least 1 hour from the time of placing your order to the time that you designate for pick up.
We invite you to have lunch at one of our picnic tables or winery porch, depending on availability. Enjoy a wine tasting or a bottle of wine or hand-crafted micro-brew from our winery to have with your lunch. The costs of wine tasting and wine or beer purchases are not included in the cost of the picnic lunch menu.
We have the availability to prepare 120 lunches per day and often sell out on sunny days at which time the on line ordering system is closed.
As a courtesy, we allow small gatherings of 16 people or less to enjoy our farm and picnic grounds. Groups or gatherings of more than 16 people will not be allowed to set up on our picnic grounds and we will limit the number of tables that we allow to be grouped together to two tables which should accommodate about 10 to 16 people. If you wish to have a family outing, re-union or gathering of more than 16 people, please contact us to discuss options for hosting your private functions.
Our picnic lunches are fresh and prepared daily by J’s, our award winning Zagat rated gourmet winery restaurant.
Sorry online picnics orders are not yet available for purchase.
Please do not call the restaurant to place Picnic Lunch to go orders. Note that Nashoba Gift Cards cannot be used to purchase on line picnic orders:
Orders for the same day must be placed prior to 3:00 pm. Please allow at least 1 hour from the time of placing your order to the time that you designate for pick up.
When you place your order on-line please be sure to state the date and time you want to pick up your order in the “Notes” section of the on-line ordering process. The “Notes” section is on the page where you are required to enter your credit card information. Your orders will be available for pick up at the Snack Shack at the time that you specify when placing your order.
You may also place your order in advance of the day that you want it ready by placing the date in the Notes Section. If you do not put a date on the order, we will assume that your order is to be prepared on the date that the order is placed except for orders placed on Monday or Tuesday, we will then assume that you want your order prepared for pickup on Wednesday since the restaurant is not open on Monday or Tuesday.
