October Updates 2021
October is here, the days are getting shorter and the beautiful fall is upon us. No doubt, autumn, is one of the most colorful, beautiful seasons when leaves are changing color and the weather cools down a bit. The restaurant and farm welcome the crisp autumn days and the upcoming holiday season. As the foliage changes to oranges, reds, golds and brown, this it the time to use those last tomatoes hanging on the vine, peppers prior to the first frost - and harvesting and preserving anything and everything in the garden. A great time to go to farmers markets and buy all those slightly, less than perfect produce and preserve them for the winter. Supporting farmers and reducing the amount of food waste while supplying ourselves with a pantry full of wonderful produce - "shopping" in our own pantry that we preserved. Hardy soups, "comfort" meals and the celebrations of the autumn harvest are always welcomed.
We are hoping to continue dining on the patio, under the tent as long as possible. We do have some heaters. We are recommending BYOSB - bring your own snuggly blanket! We do have a few wraps that we can loan and a few blankets also. As always, if too cold, we do have the conservatory available for you.
We continue to offer you a rare experience with a breathtaking view and natural setting overlooking the Potomac River. The elemental base of fresh ingredients serves as inspiration for the chef's cuisine.
"There is something incredibly nostalgic and significant about the annual cascade of autumn leaves." Joe L. Wheeler
