At The Residences we know that eating well is not just necessary for optimum health, especially as we age, it can also be one of the most pleasurable parts of the day. We have chosen our name- “Harvest”- to epitomize our philosophy regarding each of those aspects of our dining program. We always go beyond typical assisted living fare and offer meals that feature fresh, seasonal, unprocessed menu items that are scratch made by our own chefs. To that end, we have partnered with the best local sources of fresh and appealing fruits and vegetables that we will buy as they are freshly harvested.

The area is overflowing with growers and orchards. We will put on our sweaters in the fall and visit Butler’s Orchards in Germantown, MD for crisp juicy apples and freshly pressed cider, and our chef will use those items to make our fall meals special.

We are also blessed in that our location has space that allow us to grow our own fresh herbs right at the community! These will help flavor our food and make a walk even more interesting.

We are partnering with a food purveyor who works with local farms to allow us to enjoy the best of what is seasonally available. When we have corn on the cob, it will be fresh, not frozen. Pass the butter! Our low sodium soups are all home-made and seasonally inspired, and most of our tempting desserts will come from our own kitchens as well. You can’t beat freshly made!

In addition, we looked to the word Harvest to inspire the design of our beautiful dining room, where our residents will quite literally enjoy the fruits of the seasonal harvest three times a day to break bread, make new friends and chat about the latest news of the day. Our dining room, named Two Lanterns for the welcoming entrance graced with two glowing lanterns will be a friendly, comfortable place where you can select from several entrees each day served by smiling wait staff who will know your name and how you like your coffee!

Nutritious farm-to-table inspired food, friendly smiling people, and a beautiful place to enjoy the best of the mid-Atlantic Harvest!
