Huichica East, happening on September 30th and October 1st, announced its festival menu. At its core, Huichica focuses on bringing a curated experience- not only in music but in its artisanal provisions and farm to table food and wine, from owner Jeff Bundschu’s famed Sonoma winery. For its inaugural year, festival attendees can expect to see delectable dishes made by chefs Adam and Amy Lawton, Gundlach-Bundschu wine and assorted beer, Cowgrrrl Coffee, and products from the Chaseholm Farmstore, including farmstead cheeses, free range eggs, pork and beef, and much more.
Adam and Amy are a powerhouse couple whose passions combine over making meals from foragers walk to butcher’s knife and kitchen witching. Amy has been living and cooking in the Hudson Valley for years, she has been the backbone of more than one amazing restaurant in her time. She is currently managing the kitchen at Murray’s Tivoli. Adam is a Culinary Institute grad who has worked in a butcher shop. Together they are Hudson Valley Table of Contents and they specialize in farm to table meals for special events.

Partnered with (((folkYEAH!))), Huichica has presented a hand-picked line up of national and regional indie and folk acts and paired them with regional culinary talent, estate grown wines, and craft beer since 2010.

“Huichica is basically great music, great produce, and no bad attitudes. We love it when the artists and purveyors themselves are great people- the kind you’d want to hang with,” said co-founder, Jeff Bundschu. “It has been a dream to bring what we’ve created in Sonoma, California to Hudson Valley, New York to the historic Chaseholm Farm, a most majestic setting among rolling hills and green pastures. The inaugural weekend is going to be epic!”
The micro fest will be held at the Chaseholm Farm, a grass-based dairy and beef farm nestled in a 350-acre patchwork of pastures, crop land, woods and waterways located in the Pine Plains.
