The Roughwood Table
Heritage Foods from Heritage Seeds
We invite you to join us at The Roughwood Table in our mission of heirloom seed keeping, championing traditional foods, and preserving cultural foodways. We are a non-profit educational foundation devoted to heritage foods prepared from heritage seeds. The Roughwood Seed Collection, the oldest private seed collection in Pennsylvania, alongside Roughwood Table will explore creative ways to express our culinary heritage through educational presentations workshops, food tastings, and dinners.
