Meal Service means three meals a day served promptly at the scheduled times plus all day availability of drinks and snacks.


Breakfasts (served at 8:30 AM) usually consists of organic scrambled, eggs organic gluten-free ancient whole-grain cereal with a choice of nut & fruit toppings, yogurt, juice, coffee and teas. Occasionally, we will serve organic chicken or vegan sausages.


Lunches (served at 12:30 PM) will vary with season and availability of vegetables from our one-acre, organically-tended garden. Generally, there will be a fresh hearty, mostly organic salad. (We won't bore you with a bowl of wimpy iceberg lettuce and call it a salad.) The salads may be mixed green salads, rustic cole slaw, or a grain salad such as a tangy barley or rice salad. And then usually a hearty home-made soup or other hot dish such as chili with home-made corn bread, or (wild-caught Alaskan) salmon salad.


Suppers (served at 6:00 pm) will have a vegetable (almost never white potatoes and often from the garden in season), a meat dish, a vegetarian grain or bean dish, freshly prepared complex salad, and dessert. Most of our meals are low glycemic, tending towards Paleo in character, but we will often make a sweet dessert for supper as well as offering fresh fruit for snacks and desserts.

All Day Choices for Drinking

Drinks will be available all day and will include:

  • Chilled, tested, non-chlorinated well water which is delicious and mineral rich

  • Starbucks coffee

  • Unsweetened black tea with ice (sweeteners available)

  • An unsweetened herbal tea (usually lemon balm) with ice available

  • On-demand steaming hot water and a variety of herbal and black tea


Snacks will be available all day and will include one or more of the following:

  • Fresh Fruit

  • Mixed Nuts (does not include peanuts)

  • Paleo sweet loaf such as banana-apple-carrot cake, zucchini-almond loaf. These are moist and yummy, low-guilt delights that Patty serves up.
