Field & Feast 2022 was pure magic because you were all with us to welcome our three outstanding Chefs Dr. JP McMahon, Joseph Shawana and Chris Commandant. We enjoyed each other’s company and broke bread together over a meal that was created over the past months to honour traditions, cultures and the land upon which we live.  

Springfield Farm is located on Mohawk Territory. Our family is proud to be stewards of this land and are most grateful for the guidance of Grand Chief Abram Benedict and the Akwesasne community, the Irish Ambassador Eamonn McKee, and the incredible talented friends and family who made everything possible. We are extremely grateful to each of our sponsors who partnered with us on this memorable evening under the light of the Harvest Moon:  Government of Ireland, Tourism Ireland, Bord Bia, Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, Optimize Wealth Management, RTO9, Irene Cameron, ReMax Marquis Cornwall, Overbay Capital, Bushmills Irish Whiskey and our tremendous food purveyor The Glengarry Market. And a very special thanks to each member of the event team led by Anne Tardiff.

As both of our mothers would have done…we did not turn anyone away as it is so important to gather in a large happy community – there is always room at our table. Thank you for your patronage, come and visit again! – Finbarr and Eleanor McCarthy and our children and son-in-law!
