The Restaurant at Elderberry Pond
is located in a 10 acre woodlot near the center of the 100 acre farm.
The restaurant is considered to be an integral part of the farm operation. and was designed to be the showcase for
our fresh, organically produced salads, vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs.
The building is new, but has been constructed with the same materials
that were used 150 years ago, when our farm house and other barns were built. The foundation was laid from stones we picked
from our fields. The board and batten frame was made from local hemlock, and the beams in the dining areas
are from fallen local barns. Much of the interior was built from materials we collected from old houses in the area . Our
huge fireplace was made from a single pine board taken from an abandoned house not far from the farm. Our
goal was to create a relaxing home style environment for our customers to enjoy our fresh farm fare.
Seatings at the Restaurant are on Wednesday through Sunday for both lunch and dinner (Mid March - December). We have a main dining
room that seats approximately 40, and a sun-room that comfortably seats 20. For fair weather dining, the
sun room opens onto a patio overlooking the woodlot and farm fields that seats an additional 16.
Our Menu is based on the use of
fresh seasonal ingredients from our farm and on the availability of the highest quality meats and fresh fish.
Many of our meat dishes are prepared from local organic and/or grass fed livestock including our own Pork and
beef from farms in upstate New York. We are proud to promote farms like ours that produce high
quality meats by raising their livestock humanely, replacing growth hormones and antibiotics with healthy diets, free access
to pasture, and respect for their comfort and well being.
