MEREDITH — The weather has turned colder, but it hasn't cooled down in the kitchen at Moulton Farm in Meredith. The farm's kitchen is staying busy and farm chef Jonathan Diola and Tricia Lutkus, the farm's talented baker, are continuing to prepare tasty food to make weeknight dinners and the holidays easier.
For busy weekdays, the farm has just started its "Farm Meals for You" program. On Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays Diola and Lutkus will prepare a three- course dinner including appetizer, entrée and dessert that will include ingredients grown at the farm.
The menu will change weekly with the complete three course meal ranging in prices from $13 to $18 plus tax. The choices will be announced on the farm's Facebook page and at moultonfarm.com/farm-kitchen. "Just call us no later than noon of the day you want the meal. By 4 p.m. your meal will be ready for you to pick up, reheat and enjoy," says John Moulton, owner of Moulton Farm. "It's a way to have a delicious meal without the work."
The farm kitchen will also be offering pies, breads, desserts, appetizers and side dishes for the upcoming holidays. "Several years ago we started doing this for Thanksgiving," explains Moulton. "Our customers kept asking for us to expand the program, so this year the farm kitchen team will be preparing items for holiday parties, Christmas and even New Year celebrations since the farm market, which carries a range of items including fresh seafood and locally grown meats, and kitchen will be open until December 31 this year. We've even used season extending techniques so we should still be harvesting some fresh produce into December."
