GOATOBER - No Goat Left Behind

In order to make cheese, animals on the farm must be producing milk. And to make milk, mothers must be giving birth and having many babies, consistently. In the case of goat dairies across America, the birth of a male goat creates a dilemma for the farmer: there is no established good market for goat, so male goats are usually sold at birth onto the commodity market where their quality of life significantly diminishes or they are disposed of before their time, thus the reason for No Goat Left Behind. Every fall, Heritage Foods USA partners with a dozen goat dairies around upstate New York and Vermont to purchase their unwanted males when they were ready for harvest. The confidence to commit to the purchases came thanks to agreements with over 50 New York City chefs who agreed to feature goat on their menu for the full month of October. Goat is a seasonal meat with mothers giving birth mostly in the spring. Baby goats grow dining on plentiful spring and summer grasses. They are ready for market in the fall. This is why Heritage Foods USA is working to change the 10th month of the year from October to #GOATOBER! Colonie is thrilled to participate once again, look out for rotating goat dishes this month!

Kid's Table - a culinary experience for young diners only!

Some of New Yorks greatest restaurants will open their doors to maybe the hardest of critics - kids aged 7-14 years for an afternoon of fine dining on Tuesday, April 26 2016 from 4:00 to 5:30pm, and Colonie is thrilled to be participating!

The young diners, their siblings and friends will get to enjoy a healthy and tasty three-course menu prepared by the city's most talented chefs including Agern, Atera, Blue Hill New York City, Colonie, Del Posto, Franny's Brooklyn, Per Se, Rebelle, Telepan and Vaucluse NYC.

Kid's Table is meant to inspire children to take an active part in shaping the food systems of tomorrow, to introduce them to new flavors and open their eyes to a love of delicious, fresh and healthy food.

All participating restaurants will prepare and serve three delicious, healthy and seasonal dishes. The chefs will have creative freedom and each restaurant will create their own specially crafted menu, yet, three selected raw ingredients - turnips, lamb and rhubarb - will somehow make their appearance across the menu.

Kids are invited without mom and dad - for a fun and unique experience that will excite their taste buds and expand their culinary horizons.
