Farm to Table
Lisa Jaroch began Cold Frame Farm in 2013 on 27 acres in Romeo, MI following a successful 23 year career as a landscape architect. Currently she farms 2 acres in season, as well as 3 – 30×96 ft. high tunnels (hoop houses) throughout the four seasons. Her markets include the retail market at her property (72200 Campground Rd., Romeo), farmers markets, and two restaurants — one is Chapman House! When not farming she tends to 4 cats, her dog “Levi” and 75 laying hens as well as working to restore the land to provide a long term sustainable farming practice.
Chef Chris Cason
As the Executive Chef at Chapman House (311 Walnut Blvd., Rochester), Chef Chris’ extensive experience includes a degree from the Culinary Institute of America, and more than a decade spent developing menus and working in kitchens at notable restaurants in Chicago and his hometown of Detroit. Chris’ culinary career began with his first true restaurant job working at Bill Robert’s Streetside Seafood in Birmingham, MI under Chef Sharon Juergens. His career took him to Farmington Hills and Chicago before he ultimately moved back to Michigan with his family.
You will learn about the challenges of growing environmentally sustainable vegetables year round from Lisa and then enjoy tastings prepared by Chef Chris.
