What makes our produce organic? Every last leaf, root and fruit is grown from organically-certified seeds, without petrochemical or synthetic insecticides, herbicides, or fungicides. PA Certified Organic approves our methods, and we complete the three-year-long USDA organic certification process this fall!

Reservations are $100 per person and include a campus tour showcasing the sustainable agriculture of Eden Hall Campus farm, a five-course menu using produce from the farm, local wine and beer pairings, tax and gratuity.

2016 Menu will be announced mid June.
