Each month, our Great Performances menus feature seasonal ingredients. It’s our way of celebrating the earth and bringing our special touch to every menu.
And each year, we eagerly anticipate the tomatoes, especially the ones we grow at Katchkie Farm. Nothing tastes sweeter and more like summer than a sun-warmed, perfectly ripe tomato. Any way you slice it, it’s a treat.

Katchkie Farm in Kinderhook, NY is dear to our hearts, not only because that is our local, organic farm; but because it allows us to educate children on food and where it comes from via the Sylvia Center. Katchkie Farm has recently become one of our wedding venues.
