Fresh Aire Picnic


The perfect way to enjoy the idyllic countryside and James Beard Award-Winning Chef-in-Residence April Bloomfield's cuisine is with our fresh aire picnic baskets. Choose from a breakfast or lunch basket to enjoy a delicious spread in the Shakespeare Garden or alongside the La Grande Dame Chef's Garden, or take your picnic off property on a morning hike. Elevate your picnic even further with a bottle of La Grande Dame, a champagne designed to showcase the excellence of the Maison Veuve Clicquot, as we celebrate Garden Gastronomy throughout the fall season with baskets that highlight fresh local vegetables and herbs sourced on property and on neighboring farms. Select your basket 24-hours prior to pick-up and we'll have everything you need for the perfect outdoor picnic.
