It was like a scene from a movie—a scene I might have sneered at for making life seem too effortless and magical. It just turned out that for an hour or two life was that magical. It was an incredible effort, but the beauty of it all made the work seem like just another kind of joy.
Our first (annual!) Farm Dinner last weekend was all we could have hoped: blessed with perfect weather and an abundant harvest, plus a beautiful pig from our neighbors at Old Field Farm. We fed old friends and people we’d never met, watched the sun set over the Catskills, wallowed in the music of Rachel Brotman & Lora-Faye, drank plenty of Brooklyn Brewery beer and Finger Lakes wine, and lit up sparklers when the night was up.
We were incredibly lucky to have James Abbott on hand to take pictures. As you can see, it was a magical evening. We’re looking forward to doing it again next year, or sooner.
