Farmer in Residence: fruit of the coop dinner

Join the flock here at Harvester Kitchen on Tuesday, Feb 22, 2022 in celebrating our local farmers!  We are delighted to introduce our first Farmer in Residence: Stephanie Peterson with Fruit of the Coop. Stephanie’s 7-acre farm is in the watershed of the Big Sioux River near Brandon, SD.  In addition to selling eggs from her own flock of heritage and hybrid chickens, she sources all types of eggs, including quail and duck eggs, from other small flocks around Southeastern South Dakota.  All of the chickens are pasture-raised on natural grains and forage, which gives the yolks of their eggs a deep golden color, strong shells and higher nutritional value. Chef Bryan and the HK culinary team have created an inspired 5-course tasting menu featuring these local eggs and more in custards, pasta, sauces and salads. No chicken and egg situation here…Becca Connelly, Restaurant Manager, has paired the menu with lovely American focused wines.
