10th Annual Farm to Table Dinner
by Beth Kaiserman

Ten years of delicious Farm to Table meals, and this one was certainly a hit. On Saturday night we celebrated a decade of growth and learning at Katchkie Farm and The Sylvia Center.

We welcomed guests, including some of The Sylvia Center’s students and their families, to enjoy a farm-fresh meal under a perfect clear night sky in Kinderhook, NY. Guests were greeted by our friendly goats and chickens, along with our students who served up samples of herbs from the garden.

Guests enjoyed small bites and drinks in the garden, while some chose to pick raspberries instead. Under the tent they enjoyed table snacks like Assorted Housemade Pickles and Fermented Grape Leaves with Goat Cheese, followed by a buffet dinner of Whole Grilled Chicken, Wild Hives Spelt Berry Salad, Greenhouse Cherry Tomatoes with Sea Salt and Olive Oil, and more. 

Music and contra dancing made the night jolly.

We’re so grateful to our volunteers for making this event a success every year. The event raises money to continue our programs at The Sylvia Center.
