The calendar doesn't say it is winter, but it certainly looks and feels like it. Bob has been working in the woods cutting next year's firewood and Mary has been starting her winter art projects. All the animals seem to be quite happy with the weather. The sheep have been growing nice wool coats for just this occasion and the goats have a beautiful and colorful covering of hair. Even the chickens seem quite pleased with the shorter days. The bird feeder is up and filled and the chickadees, blue jays and, yes, the squirrels are enjoying the buffet. And at night the deer are eating the tips of the hardwoods that Bob has cut. And whether we know it or not, all is right with the world.
In our opinion, this is one of the best times of year to enjoy a meal at 122 Corson. On a clear night you can see the lights in Franklin County twinkling and heat from our wood stove warms us to the core.
We have openings every Saturday evening through December 29th. In addition to our Saturday meals, we will be open on Monday evening, December 31st, for a New Year's Eve celebration. We call this a Farmers New Year's Eve since we will be in bed by 10:30 p.m.!
Come and join us if you can for a relaxing evening during December. Best wishes for the holidays and we hope 2019 is a healthy and happy year for you.

P.S.: And if you are stumped for a Christmas gift we do offer gift certificates in any denomination.
Winter wants to come early this year. As we write this, we have 6" of fresh snow since after midnight. Although we have been preparing for snow, it always seems to come as a surprise. We weren't anticipating quite so much, but it's early in the season and the snow may come and go several times before winter settles in for the duration. We would rather have clear weather for driving for Thanksgiving Day and we may yet, we'll see! The point of this letter is to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Day. We will be hosting fine dining at 122 Corson through November and December and we recommend that you check the 'Upcoming Menus' for dates and choices. With Chef Eddie's Italian heritage, the cuisine will feature Italian menus through the end of the year. Italian cuisine is our favorite and Eddie has the knowledge and family history to make it authentic.
We will be hosting a dinner celebration on New Year's Eve and we recommend that you book early for a table. Chef Eddie is preparing a special menu for a special night.

We have been farming since 1976 and growing our own food has been the focus of all our farming ventures. We have seen many evolutions since the early years, from raising a nationally recognized flock of sheep, running a small dairy, growing vegetables in high-tunnel greenhouses, expanding the vegetable production to several acres, building a commercial fresh pasta business to our present day venture at 122 Corson. The constant within the evolution is growing and producing what we eat.
