Our campers taste the bounty of their farm harvests in three varied, tasty, nutritious, Kosher, and mostly vegetarian/pescatarian meals a day. They assist our creative chefs in preparing meals with love and care. At every meal, campers and staff gather around communal tables, either in our spacious dining hall or shaded outdoor dining area, and join in singing, giving thanks and sharing about the day’s events.
Last summer, we grew and ate over 2,000 pounds of our organic produce, and campers are involved in every step of the journey from seed to banquet… and back to compost to nourish the soil. We supplement the organic produce from our farm with organic produce from farmers right here in the Hudson Valley.
Shabbat dinner is especially special. It’s a true feast, and campers have created part of it: fresh-baked challah braided by the Yesod campers, hand-squeezed grape juice, flowers from our calendar garden, and, on special occasions, ginger-wineberry crisp with berries gathered from the Wineberry Trail.
Once a week, we offer an outdoor barbecue picnic with organic, kosher chicken along with vegetarian barbecue creations.
