It’s the perfect warm sunny day at the farm, and we have so much to look forward to. The possibilities seem endless as the days continue to get longer. With summer heating up, our crops are really starting to take off which means more and more local produce at Table + Tonic, as well as a variety of local delights for purchase in The Local Grocer. Not only are we providing our own home grown organic produce, but we have several local suppliers including White Gates Farm, Pork Hill Farm, and even the New Hampshire Mushroom Company.

The morning was spent preparing to make Lilac Bitters and Simple to be featured in our garden to glass cocktails. It truly is a labor of love, as we pluck the delicate lilac petals one by one. While the window of enjoying the aromatic fresh lilacs on their branches may be short and sweet, the bitters and syrups we produce will carry us through the summer here in the Mt. Washington Valley.

One of the most beautiful flowers in bloom right now is our wild irises, which grow bountifully in the front yard and seem to wrap the entire front stoop in a warm embrace. It seems the color purple is a theme right now, as the lilacs burst, and the chives also blossom. Not an ounce of space is left untouched, as the yard begins to boast rows and rows of herbs, cut flowers, cold crops, corn, strawberries, and the true test of patience and time…fruit trees.

Be on the lookout for these farm fresh treasures, as our menu changes frequently to ebb and flow with the beauty that truly is farming in New Hampshire. We love being able to share this gift of nature with all of you. Our restaurant is open for dinner from Thursday thru Monday from 5PM – 9PM. Our cafe serves breakfast and lunch daily from 8AM – 3PM. We proudly feature organic ingredients, as well as offer gluten free and vegan options. Visit us on instagram @tableandtonic throughout the summer to watch our farm grow and transform into some of the best culinary dishes that New England has to offer.
