  • Chef Gulbrandsen Anchors Feast Again

    Chef Thomas Gulbrandsen has worked in the culinary field for more than two decades, and he will be returning to Feast of the Fields for the sixth time in September 2018.

  • Mack Brook Farm Joins the Feast

    Mack Brook Farm is a beautiful 300-acre farm, nestled in the town of Argyle, New York. The property was purchased in 1928 and has since become the family home to four generations. Initially, Mack Brook was primarily a dairy farm. However in 2003, the family decided to begin raising Angus cattle, as Argyle has an environment naturally suited to that breed. A sophisticated understanding of genetics has allowed Mack Brook Farm to breed the very best cattle, producing extremely fine meat with superior flavor.

  • BLG Farm Joins the Feast

  • Chefs of Feast – Chris Bonnivier

    Meet Chef Chris Bonnivier, of the Adelphi Hospitality Group, our newest Chef for Feast of the Fields. Originally from Dalton, Massachusetts, his first experience working in a kitchen was at age fourteen, when he worked with Maître Cuisinier Jean Morel at the Hostellerie Bressane in Hillsdale, New York. Though he was hired as a dishwasher, he became inspired by Morel’s French cooking, falling in love with the “farm-to-table” practices used there.
