2023 FOOD FESTIVAL: PRESERVATION
Framing a moment in time is at the heart of what we do every day.
A new calendar (download yours here) provides a moment of reflection on the year gone by. 2022 has been a time of recovery and reunion with the oft-repeated phrase, “Omigod, I haven’t seen you in years!” We set a record for weddings and all that love felt so good! And we fully settled into our new Bronx headquarters, completing our expansion and opening our doors to the community with Mae Mae, our plant powered cafe & plant store.
It was a good growing year at Katchkie Farm despite the too much / too little rain scenarios that played out May through November. Our CSA bags and our catering menus were brimming with beautiful vegetables, thanks to Farm Manager Jon and his hardworking farm team.
Our 2023 calendar theme, Preservation, is an ode to the art of preserving the harvest as well as a salute to the self-preservation of body and spirit. These have been challenging years! It’s fair to say we have been pickled and fermented, but that life goes on. It is the celebratory moments and the opportunities to come together that we relish.
We want to help you “preserve the moments and memories” all year long!
