The Farm.

It's all very well saying that we are committed to locally grown food, but how many times have you heard that from a restaurant? However, unlike most restaurants we have two unique assets. First we have access to 2 acres of land next to Farmer & the Fish and second, the chef/farmer/partner of Farmer and The Fish Michael studied agriculture at SUNY Cobleskill. Starting our own farm and producing really local food just makes sense to us. We want to keep visitors up-to-date with news about our farm and the produce we are growing so come back again soon.
