At Heirloom we work with the best seasonal product we can get our hands on. From farm, forest, pasture and stream, we work to create a meal that nourishes the body as well as the heart by providing a sense of place and season. We preserve the bounty of spring and summer to sustain us through the fall and winter while respecting what each season brings anew. We feel we can be forward thinking by looking backwards, create something new by acknowledging our past. We call our food “modern farmhouse cuisine”
We look forward to sharing our food with you!
