In the idyllic countryside near Auburn, New York lies a garden restaurant that will delight your senses. It has its own Certified Organic Farm where it grows all of the produce for the meals and is quite literally farm-to-table all on the same site. What meat it doesn’t produce is sourced from local organic and grass-fed livestock raised humanely on nearby farms. Its 100 acres have been in farming production since the 1800s and Elderberry Pond has become a picture of perfect sustainability, beauty, and culinary art.

Among their other dishes, Elderberry Pond also has Pan-Seared Thai Shrimp, Broiled Scallops Au Vin, Mussels with Fire-Roasted Tomato Cream Sauce, and several other tantalizing options. They have seasonal and holiday menus aside from their main menu throughout the year. There is a Country Food Store on site where they sell meat and produce and several of the dishes from the restaurant.

While you’re in the area, take a trip through history by visiting the home of Harriet Tubman. A wonderful day trip all around.
