Nature and puppies- does it get any better? Nope! See both with a visit to idyllic Kretschmann Family Organic Farm and an introduction to little Molly, the adorable farm dog with a big future ahead of her.
So, when I find true corn, corn with history, sweet, imperfect corn from smaller farms, who have put their foot down, who have held fast to purity, all I want to do is celebrate!

What we offer as Harvest & Gather will be different than any other series in Pittsburgh. We're moving the farm dinners away from the farm, inviting guests to overlooked spaces with transformation potential. We're calling attention to the aged bones of our city, to the storied layers and the past, through design, food and storytelling. My sentiments for architecture preservation run parallel to my sentiments for farms. There are lessons in bricks and in seeds that we risk losing.
