Our Eat Local Philosophy
Our two Garrison properties, The Garrison and Highlands Country Club, support the idea that strong local economies are the lifeblood of healthy communities. We believe that a vibrant system of interdependence between local producers and consumers helps shape local culture, and that the character of the local culture in turn helps determine a community’s landscape.
We are in the business of bringing people together to enjoy the bounty of both our local and regional communities, the Hudson Highlands and the Hudson Valley. Much of our food and beverage is sourced within these areas through relationships we continue to develop with independent producers and their distributors. Our two restaurants, Valley and Tavern, endeavor to reflect the flavor of this region by featuring some of the foods, beers, wines, spirits, produce and other products that it produces.
Tavern satisfies appetites for traditional country preparations during the wintertime while our team at Valley pursues a contemporary fine dining menu of inspired American cuisine during the main growing season.
Our own farming operation, called Garrison Farm, grows many of the vegetables and herbs used in our menus, and is increasing the quantity of livestock raised on-site. The goats that can be seen from time to time around the property are used mainly for clearing brush, while pigs and other animals are raised for food.
