The bond with horses transcends time. We wish share the true story of a man who died at his home last month after a valiant battle with cancer. He was at the forefront of the farm-to-table movement.
Earning a reputation as the ultimate authority on meats and charcuterie, he was sought after as a celebrity guest chef for important gourmet gatherings and celebrations across the country. His passion for food and life was contagious. His raucous laughter filled the room and will stay with those who knew and loved him always.
In his later years, he returned to his childhood love of horses. From playing polo to rekindling his love affair with a four-in-hand, he made sure that horses once again became an integral part of his life.
In his last few months, his wife shared with us that his greatest delight was having his family drive a carriage with him on their farm. Although a light has dimmed for those who loved and admired his passion for life, courage and generosity of spirit, his enthusiasm has encouraged the family to continue carriaging as a part of their connection to the land and their heritage.
