Artists need good nourishment and the dining hall is a focal point of life at Snow Farm. But it's not just about the bagels or brownies; meals with fellow classmates and instructors are an opportunity for extended learning and connection. The light-filled dining room has large window banks that look out in two directions and long rectangular wooden tables. The outdoor dining patio features smaller round tables with umbrellas for shade and a few picnic tables. Outdoor electric heaters will keep diners cozy and warm in the cooler weather. The daily dilemma: linger at lunch with new friends or head straight back to the studio. Really, it's a win-win. For detailed information about how our dining room will operate safely, please see the COVID-19 Information page.
The Snow Farm kitchen uses high quality, all natural, locally grown ingredients to offer an array of nutritionally sound choices at every meal. Menu items include freshly made continental breakfast such as yogurt, granola, bacon, eggs, bagels, muffins & breads. Lunch includes homemade soups, specialty salads, sandwiches, and nutritional grain bowls. Seasonal dinners are designed around a healthy Mediterranean Diet that focuses on locally grown and sourced lean meat and fish, whole grains, beans, nuts, legumes, and delicious homemade desserts. Four meal plans are available: Regular (no restrictions), Regular/Gluten-free, Vegetarian, and Vegan/Gluten-free. Guests make a choice in advance so we can plan and purchase accordingly.
Snow Farm is unable to accommodate specific preferences or restrictions beyond our gluten-free, vegetarian, or vegan meal choices. Students with specific dietary needs or food allergies are welcome to bring additional food to supplement the meal plan; a shared participant refrigerator is available.
Students with severe, life-threatening food allergies are asked to call the Snow Farm office (413-268-3101) a mimimum of one week prior to arrival.
All housing packages include all the meals during the workshop period.
Non-residential students can add a lunch or full meal package to their workshop when registering.
