Growth spurt

Heron Pond Farm expanding with local food hub

(Continued)

One way Cantelmo plans on introducing people to local produce is through “Farm to Fort” dinners.

“Farm to fort dinners have traditionally been a place where people can get a dinner made completely out of ingredients from the farm,” Cantelmo said. “These are done by different chefs, usually from super high-end restaurants, and they prepare a menu based on what we offer and serve dinner.”

In addition, Cantelmo said the Kensington store will also open early at 6 a.m. to serve coffee and baked goods to commuters on their way to work.

“Again, all from a local base,” he said. “Obviously, coffee doesn’t grow locally, but we’ll be using local companies.”
