Terrain & Table

An immersive dining experience that celebrates sustainable food at its source—in the field, on the farm, ranch, orchard, vineyard—under the glorious open sky. Hosted by Kris and Shawn, the gentlemen at the heart of The Farmhouse Project, this is an opportunity to pair community and cuisine in a very special way. Tailored to passionate food lovers, Terrain & Table is a feast for the senses and the spirit. It’s a captivating way to spend a few memorable hours with loved ones—and with friends you haven’t met yet. We invite you to share in this unique experience.

Gather with us.

Terrain & Table dinners are held in the countryside all over the Catskills and beyond. We choose a new destination for every dinner, so every time we clink glasses and break bread with our guests, we embrace our surroundings anew—and share that joy with you. When you dine with us, you get a feel for our labor of love, The Farmhouse Project, for how we live, and how we entertain at home. Dinners are held monthly, beginning in early summer through the cozy, crisp days of autumn.

Enjoy the finest fare.

We invite a different chef to create a different menu for every dinner. Dishes may be globally inspired, and our multi-course menus are often themed. Our chefs bring an array of culinary backgrounds to the table, celebrating the varied foods that make our country unique. No matter how diverse the menus, the common thread is always the use of seasonal bounty and the freshest local ingredients.

Immerse yourself.

Our dinners are about so much more than food. Every location inspires a unique event—from live band performances and nature walks to entertaining talks about the venue and what happens there. Start out with informal mingling while you enjoy a welcome cocktail and hors d’oeuvres. Then make your way to our long, common table where your multi-course dinner, paired with fine local wines, is elegantly served. Finally, end the evening with good conversation as the sun sets on your unforgettable experience.

North Branch Dinner

As spring begins its graceful bow to bountiful summer, join us in the garden of this charming B&B, just down the road from The Farmhouse Project. Our backdrop for the evening will be the casually elegant North Branch Inn, named for the hamlet founded in 1851, where apple orchards are plentiful and cares drift away to ripples from the nearby creek. This very special dinner will be prepared by Kris and Shawn, accomplished home cooks who’ve had the good fortune of traveling and bringing home exciting global flavors from around the world. Tickets are limited. A magical intimate dinner that you may want to book a room at the inn and make a weekend of it. Dinner includes a welcome cocktail and hors d’oeuvres, live music, and an informal tour of the property. Inspired by the freshest ingredients of the season, Kris and Shawn will create the themed menu in the days leading up to the event; the menu will be revealed at your table.

Anglers Dinner

Some say it’s a sport, a hobby … a way of life; fly fishing has captured the minds and hearts of people all over the world. The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum celebrates this passion; its mission is to preserve the heritage of fly fishing in the Catskills. We’re honored to host a dinner there, seated at our long communal dinner on the banks of the Willowemoc Creek, a tributary of the Beaverkill River, considered the birthplace of fly fishing in America. We’ll begin the evening with a reception, a welcome cocktail and hors d’oeuvres, an informal talk, and a fly-tying demo. Accompanied by live music, your multicourse dinner with wine pairings will be inspired by the freshest ingredients of the season; the themed menu will be created by our featured chef in the days leading up to the event; the menu will be revealed at your table.

Frost Valley is a remarkable place with a long history that celebrates the joys of communing with nature on many levels; it’s a camp, a retreat destination, and an environmental education center.

Come early to explore some of its 5,500 acres of preserved land. You’ll enjoy a reception, informal talk and tour, and live music—along with a welcome cocktail and hors d’oeuvres. Your multicourse dinner will be served at our long, communal table on a hilltop, offering some of the most picturesque views of the Catskills, at the peak of autumn foliage season. Inspired by the freshest ingredients of the season, the themed menu will be created by our featured chef in the days leading up to the event; the menu will be revealed at your table.
