Open for Take out with picnic!

Dear Lareau Farm Patrons!

Update! August 16th, 2021.

We found that our outdoor space is so weather sensitive, maintaining table service and reservations was nearly impossible. Starting August 19th we are reverting back to take out only with picnic in the back of the restaurant, outdoors only. 

We thank everyone for their support, we hope that the picnic model will satisfy many of you! It’s a beautiful space with delicious food. Please call us after 3pm to place your order or place your order online.Tables will be available on the first come, first served basis. 

Our service hours: 4 pm-close.

Thank you!

Benefit Bakes

Being a good neighbor is part of American Flatbread’s mission.  We wouldn’t be here today without the strength and support of our community. As a way of giving back, we host weekly Benefit Bakes where we donate a portion of every flatbread sold to an organization working to improve our community.  These evenings are dedicated not only to raising funds but to raising awareness around community issues and individuals.


If you have a local organization that you would like to raise awareness for and would like more information on our Benefit Bakes, please email us using the link below.

The Lareau Farm in Waitsfield is looking to hire front of house staff for its restaurant. In preparation for a changing hospitality environment we are implementing a new service model. Although initial responsibilities for the current opening will be interacting with guests, we are now cross-training team members on several positions.
