The Dining Hall


Our farm to table dining hall has a wide variety of choices from around the Berkshire Region. From our homemade soups and stocks, fresh baked muffins and scones from Bread Alone and an organic hot steel cut oatmeal bar.  90% of the fruit vegetables, and livestock raised at the Hotchkiss farm is prepared and served by our dining services.  The salad bar features 100% organic mesclun, romaine and spinach along with, fresh organic hummus, produce from the Hudson Valley, Berkshire County and our campus farm and gardens in season. You are bound to find something to please you.  The deli offers include house roasted beef top round, house smoked turkey or pastrami, pastured house cured and smoked ham, farm grown (nut-free) pesto chicken.  Additionally we have Grafton cheddar and house made spreads with 100% whole wheat and whole grain bread available.  Hamburgers are always 100% grass-fed from Hardwick Beef raised without antibiotic & added hormone.  Sunday brunch features house cured Wild Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon or house made bacon cured with local maple syrup.  The Dining Hall also has a large beverage bar of fruit infused waters and brews Harney and Sons iced tea daily. The desserts are balanced and sometimes replaced with fruit salad or frozen yogurt to help promote a healthy eating lifestyle. Fresh fruit is abundant and readily available in between meals and during meal hours.
