WHAT IS THE MENU FOR EACH EVENT?
Harvest dinners feature a four to five course meal (or the equivalent in Tapas or “family” style) with wines / beer / cider paired for each course. Our annual brunch at EcoVillage is buffet style (alcoholic beverages may be available for purchase). Most of the produce will come from the host farm with some fruit, meat, cheeses and breads coming from other nearby Finger Lakes growers and purveyors. Whatever the menu, it’s sure to be fresh and delicious!
