Crystal Springs Resort sources from local foragers known for their ability to uncover rare and hyper-seasonal ingredients, often available only for a few short days or weeks. Our chefs have fostered relationships that supply them with top quality ingredients at the peak of freshness and ripeness.
Resort Director of Health & Wellness Sarah Berman and Corey Finck of The Armstrong Farm in Wantage, NJ have provided our kitchens edible foraged items for years. Along with Corey’s brother, they have revitalized the historic six-acre organic farm, which grows edible plants and heirloom vegetables in addition to chickens and honeybees. The farm allows them to forage on the property as well as the surrounding woods.
Deliveries are made to the Resort weekly, and they have provided our Chefs with over 130 edible plants to use for various dishes. Look for their ramps, ginger root, woodland strawberry blossoms, nettles and wild mushrooms on our menus.
