Chef Kara Berlage

Ever since Kara could stand on a chair to reach the counter, she was learning and experimenting in the kitchen. From knowledge passed down through the generations to a lifelong passion for learning and honing her skills, Kara’s approach to cooking and baking is a lived practice. From perfecting just the right texture of ancient grain dough to the finer points of wood-fired searing, her skills are broad in scope yet focused on bringing out the best in the fresh, whole ingredients grown right here on the farm.
