Historic Drover's Roast, Salem Cross Inn, West Brookfield, MAJoin us at our dining event as we prepare a 1700's American trailside feast recalling the days of John Pynchon, the colonies' first cattle drover.  We hand rub prime ribs of beef with an age old recipe of spices and slowly roast it for hours over a huge fire pit.  Watch us make fritters and chowder of the sea in cast iron cauldrons over open fires.

Our dining event Drover's Roast is completed with a wagon ride.These are just the beginning of an endless feast (eight tables long!) including other seasonal entrées and a large variety of hot and cold vegetable dishes.  At our dining event, enjoy an assortment of delightful baked goods and fresh home baked shortcake or pies topped with real whipped cream. Enjoy horse drawn wagon rides, live entertainment, demonstrations by period crafts people and a Cow Puncher Drink.
