Dinner in the Field

A harvest celebration of the food, the farm, and the plate!  

Held on Saturday, September 23rd overlooking Craigardan’s fields and the Adirondack High Peaks beyond, guests will gather for a two-part culinary and artistic celebration.  Join us for a community cocktail-hour, followed by four-courses of exceptional farm food, outstanding art and fabulous community.  The evening also includes a film debut by The Space We Make, a gallery exhibition featuring artist-in-residence Caitlin Wright, and a silent auction of ceramic treasures.  Post-feast, guests take home the handmade tableware crafted by artist-in-residence, Catherine Seidenberg.  

The hand-crafted, wood-fired tableware is custom-made for this event by artist and horticulturalist Catherine Seidenberg.  Seidenberg’s summer residency at Craigardan culminates in the first annual Dinner in the Field, and each guest receives one of her beautiful table settings.

The evening's menu features creatively prepared food by chef Taylor LeFleur of Farmstead Catering.  All ingredients are fresh, seasonal, organically grown, pasture raised and sourced locally for this event.  It is a delicious collaboration between Craigardan, Echo Farm, and other local farms and artisan makers.

This year's inaugural event will honor Paul Z. Nowicki: his life as a maker and his vision for a creative collective - the founding dream which was to become Craigardan.

All proceeds will go toward Craigardan's educational programming in the arts, agriculture, and culinary arts.
