The Seasonal Culinary Vision at Perona Farms

The dedicated culinary team develops extensive menus on a seasonal basis. Our on site greenhouse, smokehouse, and extensive kitchens allow us to always be fresh and innovative across our culinary offerings. Our fresh greens are moments from your plate, smoked salmon is cured and smoked in house — small examples of our 100 years of farming heritage.

Additionally, as a part of the Jersey Fresh program, we use the freshest local ingredients whenever they are in season.
