Enjoy a four course meal prepared over an open-fire by Eden Restaurant and grown on Grindstone Farm. All products are sourced locally and sustainably.
Farm to Fork 101 and Eden Restaurant have started a dinner series that is meant to connect guests with their food, their farmer and their chef. Our first of 2021, in this series, has us visitingGrindstone Farm in Pulaski, NY.
We are farmers committed to sustainability. Grindstone Farm, LLC. has been a NOFA-NY Certified Organic grower of fruits and vegetables since 1988. In addition, we raise non-certified, “all natural, pasture raised, free range” livestock. As our marketing and distribution capacity has grown, we've added products grown by other local farmers. We have helped other farms become organic. We know our customers want to eat year-round - and our employees need a paycheck year-round - so we decided to supplement with “non-local” organic food from a wholesale source as needed. This combination works for us. We hope it works for you too. We are committed to providing source identified sustainable food to customers, and a sustainable living to ourselves and our local farm partners. Thank you for supporting community agriculture.
There will be a social hour from 5-6 pm for everyone to enjoy a stroll around the farm and enjoy a farm fresh adult beverage. (alcohol is not included in price but will be available for purchase). The dinner will start promptly at 6 pm. We will connect and hear stories from the chef himself and about how his restaurant has adapted to the ever changing industry. We will also have a chance to hear stories from Grindstone farm and connect with them as they speak about how they work together with many other farms to serve their community and others. We will also hear from the Owner of Farm to Fork 101 on the importance of community action and food. Lastly, everyone will have a chance to watch the chef in action and speak with him directly while he is preparing your dishes. So many great things to check out.
